Small Church Transformed Into A Beautiful Vacation Home

Although converting or restoring a building can be more costly than building it from scratch, sometimes it pays off to choose a more challenging and unusual project. This vacation home, for example, used to be a church.

Located in Nova Scotia, the church is now a summer retreat, an oasis in this beautiful region. The conversion of the space didn’t have as a goal to delete the past of the building and to give it a whole new look but, on the contrary, to preserve as much of the original as possible.

St. Alban’s vacation home is a very special place, the perfect hideaway for those that need a break from the city life. Situated along a country road, the retreat offers beautiful views and it’s surrounded by peace and quiet. The conversion preserved the building pretty much intact in terms of size and layout. Relatively small, the vacation home offers 2.5 bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms plus all the amenities.

The home features a gourmet kitchen, a spa-like bathroom and modern conveniences. This makes it even more alluring, especially since everything is wrapped in such a charming décor. those that decide to spend a few relaxing days here can enjoy all sorts of activities, from hiking to cycling and exploring. There’s much to see in the vicinity of the vacation home. The location is also very convenient, with shops and much more close by.{found on theottomanempire}.
