A former Methodist Church in Kew has been converted into a 5 bedroom and 5 bathroom luxury home, while retaining many original features.

Most striking of these is a vast 40 foot reception room, which was the original church hall used by worshippers for over 70 years.

The building operated as a church between 1891 and 1969, when it was bought by a private individual who turned it into a home.

Planning permission was granted in 2014 to extend and develop the building into the vast residential property that is currently being listed for sale.

The sale details promise a rare opportunity to acquire a former church building with newly built, two storey linked addition providing a unique luxury residence of approximately. 3500 sq.ft.

It is said to combine an ultra modern, 'state of the art' internal finish with original ecclesiastical architecture.

The details state: "The property which benefits from superb natural light features 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, a stunning 40' x 21' reception room created from the original church hall whilst retaining the double height barrel vaulted ceiling together with a mezzanine level minstrel gallery and interconnecting, high specification fitted kitchen/family room.

"Outside within the grounds there are attractive enclosed courtyards, lawned garden areas and provision for off street parking for 2 cars."

The building, which is situated enviably in the Kew Green conservation area, is close to the many bars and restaurants around Kew Green and within easy reach of Kew Gardens underground station, Kew Bridge mainline station, the main entrance to the Royal Botanic Gardens.
