Swanky Preston apartment hidden inside historic Grade-II listed church for sale

Written by on August 4, 2022

A swanky apartment hidden away within the walls of a former church in Preston in now on the property market.

The former St Mark’s Church on St Mark’s Road is a Grade-II listed building that went into disuse in 1983. In the years following, it has been used as various residential developments.

It was eventually transformed into residential apartments, one of which is now on the property market. The apartment set within the church surrounded by the original features of the church and comes with a price tag of £115,000.

Listed on RightMove, striking wooden beams outline the structure of the church’s roof whilst also acting as a stunning decorative piece. The small lounge area doubles as an open plan kitchen space, cosily tucked under the slanted roof.

Keeping the beams as the main attraction of the room, the furniture has been purposefully placed to incorporate the impressive structure in the small space. A breakfast bar wraps around the base of a beam at the side of the open plan room.

The apartment contains two bedrooms and a bathroom. The kitchen has a range of fitted wall and base units in contemporary black with contrasting worktops.

Both bedrooms are small in size but have been designed to make full use of the space available. Huge Velux windows draw in sunlight making the room feel brighter and more airy.

Similarly, the bathroom is full of character and original features. It is fitted with a bath tub and wash hand basin, storage cupboard and exposed beams and also has the same Velux windows as the bedroom drawing in light.
