Brochure
This astonishing newly refurbished church, built in around 1530, was languishing in abject ruin until the present owner spotted its potential. Since undergoing an ambitious three-year rebuild, the property has been featured in numerous architectural magazines: Dwell named it one of 2019’s top 10 refurbished properties worldwide.

Astonishing newly refurbished church blending ancient and modern aesthetics, creating a thoroughly contemporary living space with an exalted and meditative atmosphere.

Set on a 900 m2 plot, flanked by wooded hillside, this unique property offers a total built area of 250 m2. The airy, open-plan living space lets the original masonry take centre stage, revelling in its sober columns, clerestory windows and curvaceous apse, now a neat kitchen recess. Warmed by a handsome woodburning stove, it’s a stunning space for entertaining or quiet contemplation. In delightful contrast, a two-storey mezzanine hangs above like a treehouse, hewn from unvarnished pine and accessed by wooden staircases. The ingenious design, crowned by a simple and elegant wooden cathedral ceiling makes the most of the building’s height. The result is a contemporary home that feels remarkably spacious. As if this wasn’t enough, included in the listing price is a small collection of art and furnishings amassed over the last ten years.

The current owner has done a breath-taking job of blending renaissance and modern aesthetics, creating a thoroughly contemporary living space with an exalted and meditative atmosphere. This is a truly unique and extraordinary home that will captivate artists and art-lovers alike.
