For open-plan living that’s not like staying in a big bland box, you can count an old converted church like this circa-1889 brick charmer cherished by the same owner for nearly 30 years. The property, sitting on a three-quarter-acre lot in a small rural community halfway between two lakes, features a 2,000-square-foot main space with original woodworking, exposed trusses, and stained glass windows.
While the listing mentions the potential for a "loft master suite" overlooking the main space, the finished lower level does already offer a 1,500-square-foot, two-bedroom ensuite apartment with an open kitchen and two living areas. Perhaps dreamier than the structure itself, which is covered with creeping hyacinth on the side, are the extensive gardens with meandering paths, koi ponds, rock formations, and pergola archways.
