Situated in the desirable and picturesque town of Granville Ferry, this former United Church (ca. 1878) is an impressive beacon of the landscape and a showcase of Gothic Revival Architecture. An immense off-set tower & spire with paired arched windows, steeply-pitched gable roof, pointed gothic windows and decorative dentil moldings & corner boards combine for a grandiose presence. No detail has been over-looked; it was tastefully, thoughtfully and painstakingly renovated, retaining and complimenting the historic character while adding the comforts of modern living. The custom double-central mahogany doorway invites you in to the masterfully crafted four-season downstairs living space (2017); including the master bedroom with huge walk-in closet, two additional bedrooms, full bath, kitchen and living/dining area. Upstairs is a colossal open-concept entertainers dream, featuring a central kitchen with copper countertops and refrigerator drawers, nine custom polarized windows (2012) that fill the whole level with light, original wood floors and a soaring 22' ceiling. Another full bath, tower bedroom, pantry/storage and former elevated presbytery with views to Annapolis Royal complete this amazing sanctuary. Moving on up the tower you'll find another room that would be ideal for an office or zen/yoga retreat. Keep moving up and you'll locate the two-ton bell made by Troy Bell Foundry (ca. 1857). This bronze bell is hung with rotary yokes, wheels & frame and the tolling hammer still strikes true; it is fully functional and continues to ring proud. Beautifully landscaped with cherry & apple trees, currants, raspberries and more. 20 minute stroll to the 'most livable' town in the world, Annapolis Royal (as voted in a 2004 international competition). Now is your chance to live in an immaculate church, don't wait until the afterlife.
