This former church has been converted into a unique family home, its historic features enhanced by striking contemporary styling.

The four bedroom property, at 145 Lound Side, Chapeltown, Sheffield S35, is offered for sale at £650,000.

It has potential to create further bedrooms and planning permission for a double garage.

The building retains original features including stained glass windows, stone arches and vaulted ceilings, but has underfloor heating both upstairs and down, an alarm system and electric gates.

Set in a popular residential area, close to local amenities, it is also within easy reach of open countryside.

Arched double doors open into an inviting reception area with stone flagged floor and ground floor wc.

The living area is a striking and flexible open plan space with a galleried landing that takes advantage of views and the vaulted ceiling.

A dining kitchen, separated by glass screening, is fitted with a range of units with solid wood worktops and a breakfast bar.

Integrated equipment includes a multifuel cooker, dishwasher and fridge. An adjoining utility room has plumbing for a washing machine.

A spiral staircase rises to the landing, which forms a bridge over the living area and gives access to a studio. This can also be accessed from a side entrance door and staircase and off it is a stone staircase to the clock tower.

Focal point of the en-suite master bedroom is a magnificent circular leaded glass window. There are three more double bedrooms and a family bathroom with shower bath, low-flush wc and pedestal 

Outside, a driveway provides off-road parking for several vehicles. An enclosed garden is mainly lawned. The main formal garden has a stone-flagged patio and mature planting.
