Inside incredible church-conversion home featured on George Clarke's The Restoration Man – & it could be yours for £250k | The Sun

A HEAVENLY church conversion that stunned viewers of George Clarke's The Restoration Man could be yours for a steal price of £250,000.

The three-bedroom home comes with an open plan living design, shower room, breath-taking views and a history dating back to the 11th century.



Located in the Pembrokeshire countryside, the former Welsh church sits between St David's and Fishguard, completely surrounded by nature.

This seclusion would make it the perfect stargazing spot for potential home buyers, as well as ensure the next resident enjoys a peaceful night's sleep.

There are even records to suggest this worship spot used to be the last place for many pilgrims on their way to St David's Cathedral.

The church appeared on George Clarke's home renovation show in 2010 and was transformed into the stunning conversion after two years.

Gareth Williams, who took on the major project, had a budget of just £55,000 which later stretched to around £77,000.

The property's interior has managed to keep many characterful features of the church, such as a large window that allows sunlight to flood into the kitchen.

As a nod to the original purpose of the building, a church pew has been put at the dining table and a religious statue features in the living area.

Exposed brick and wooden beams also add to the charm of the property, but underfloor heating and double glazed windows ensure the practicalities of a modern home.

The owner, when chatting to WalesOnline in 2016, said: "The home has an air to water heat pump, it takes heat out of the air via a heat recovery unit, like a reverse fridge effect.

"The unit removes stale air and replaces it with warm clean air. There is a bill to run the unit but it's not a big bill."

A large spiral staircase takes house hunters to the second level, where they will find three spacious bedrooms and shower room.

The décor brings the calming nature of the surrounding countryside into the home, with pale blue walls reflecting the sunny skies.

Just beyond the property sits a graveyard which is still open to the public but the next owner would not be disturbed as they can enjoy a sizable and private garden.

It was put up for sale six years ago and sold for £180,000 but it is now listed for a guide price of £250,000.

This comes as other people around the UK opt to renovate unusual buildings.

On another episode of George Clarke's The Restoration Man, property developer Andrew Jones converted a water tower into a £1.75million home.

High Legh Water Tower, in Knutsford, Cheshire, was built in 1938 to improve the water supply to the area until it was decommissioned in 2007.

The three year project cost almost £700,000 but now the six storey property has four bedrooms, two en suite bathrooms, an entrance hall, a kitchen, a lounge/dining room, a study and a conservatory.
