A Modern Mansion Carved Out of Romanesque British Church

New, 12 comments

Built as a memorial church at the turn of the century, this brick Romanesque chapel outside of London took ten years to complete and has since served uses as varied as an army command post and a recording studio. Most recently, All Saints House, as the property is now known, was converted into an elaborate private home with all the modern bells and whistles, while retaining the classic architecture, including the 118-foot tower. The 14,000-square-foot mansion features seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms, "reception hall, great hall, sitting room, family room, kitchen/breakfast room, dining area, library, study, indoor pool, Jacuzzi and steam room, numerous store rooms," and a viewing gallery in the former church tower. In keeping with the red-hot London-area property market, the sprawling property is listed for a staggering $14.7M.
