Here is a very affordable and funky historic home!
Originally a church, this solid brick structure in rural Lawrence Township, Michigan (outside of Kalamazoo in southern Michigan) has been converted to a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home and is currently for sale.
Built in 1883 in the Gothic Victorian style, this 2,280 square foot dwelling is priced at $121,900.
Have a look inside….
The decor is, well, let’s be honest, dated and a little on the gaudy side.
The listing tells us that not only did this building serve as a church, but it was also used as a school at one point in time.
Off one side of the structure, there is an enclosed porch with a hot tub.
The grand staircase leads upstairs with 2 loft-style open bedrooms with closets adjoined by a full bath.
Look at this odd configuration:
Well, at least there is some natural light!
Outside, there is a patio area:
The old church/school comes on a 1-acre lot with country views, perched on a slight rise.
The listing emphasizes “CASH or Conventional terms only. Being sold AS IS.”
Clearly, this place needs some work. But at such a low list price, it is totally doable. Think of how adorable it could be!
Postscript…. by the time House Crazy Sarah got this post to publication, the property was already SOLD!
