Listed chapel in graveyard converted into stunning family home

An old chapel in Devon has been transformed into a stunning two-bedroom house – and it’s on the market.

The Grade II listing, built in a graveyard in Illfracombe, enjoys gorgeous views of the countryside, reports DevonLive.

Constructed in 1835, the religious building features a solid oak floor and door, stained glass windows and slate window sills.

Additionally, it has a modern kitchen, bathroom and beautiful beech spiral staircase.

The chapel was converted into a residence in 2006 – and it has around one third of an acre for a garden.
