Located a tiny village in Canaan, CT–it’s the second smallest in the state–this former church in a historic district is currently home to a prominent artist and architectural designer. And we can see why it might be the perfect creative recharging space. There’s even a reading nook in the bell tower. Built in roughly 1900, the two-bedroom single-family home at 24 Beebe Hill Road is on the market for $525,000.
The huge main room anchors the residence. At 30 feet wide, nearly 60 feet long and 30 feet high, the light-filled space makes quite an impression.
Beneath the original chestnut-beamed ceiling there’s plenty of room for entertaining. At one end is a seating area anchored by a historic Count Rumford fireplace.
The stunning renovated kitchen is both rustic and modern. It’s well equipped to handle large scale events or intimate dinners with carefully designed custom cabinetry and top-of-the-line appliances.
Up a graceful curved staircase are two bedrooms and a modern bath.
The building’s original choir loft offers access to the bell tower which is a fantastic spot for reading and relaxing.
An additional room and another full bath on the main level are handy for extra guests or as workspace. The home is surrounded by an acre of land that’s perfect for events or family gatherings–or a game of croquet. The storybook New England town of Falls Village makes this unique home even more of an ideal tranquil escape.
