This “unique” converted church is full of original features and is going under the hammer for less than £100,000. 

The church, in Hayscastle, was originally known as St Edrin’s, which is thought to have early medieval origins and was rebuilt in 1846. 

St Edrin’s was the subject of local legend, with the grass in the churchyard having being rumoured to have “miraculous” powers as a cure for mad dogs. 

The building was converted into a dwelling in 1987.

The church retains original features throughout and “plenty of character”, such as arches and original windows. 

On the ground floor of the church is a porch, a hall, a dining room with a spiral staircase, and a kitchen to the rear.

“This property offers ample opportunity with original features and plenty of character, with the right buyer and a good eye for detail this church would make a fantastic investment.”
