Dating back to 1887 when it was known as The French Protestant Church of Brighton, the church stopped serving the community in 2008 before it was then transformed into the impressive home it is today. Gothic features such as pointed arches and lancet windows keep great character running through the property and the spacious living area boasts tall vaulted ceilings, striking stained-glass windows and the original alter which has been cleverly turned into a bar area perfect for entertaining.

Incorporating the lower part of a former windmill really makes this home stand out from the crowd. What is now the main living room was once the base of the original post mill where original timbers supported by brick buttresses and the timber-clad conical ceiling add plenty of unique character.
