Resident Church XL on sale !

Thursday, 12 January 2012

If you ever wanted to live in a church this is your chance ! I have seen this house in many design books and I must admit that I have a thing for dramatic and unique spaces ! 
Saint Jakobus Church, a Christian sanctuary dating back to 1870 has been converted into a modern townhouse and is now for sale.
Known as “WoonkerkXL” or “The Residential Church XL“, this unusual home is located in Utrecht, the Netherlands, and is the only so-called “plasters” Gothic style church in the city. Once a soberly decorated church, Saint Jakobus became a beautiful, lively home, once the designers of ZECC Architects were done with it. Paying great attention to space, lighting and functionality, they managed to create a living space you’d actually want to live in, without messing with the exterior or the stained glass windows dating back to 1911.
Check out the wonderful photos below, and if you like what you see and have 1.6 million euros, you can place a bid on The Residential Church XL, here.
