A GRAVEYARD chapel that’s been transformed into a stunning two-bedroom house has been put on the market for £500,000.

The Grade II listed building is 135-years-old within the Devon countryside based in Ilfracombe.

The old chapel looks like a communal place of worship from outside but inside it’s been turned into a cosy home

The property spans across a third of an acre and house hunters can make it theirs for half-a-million pounds. 

The old graveyard chapel has remnants of it’s history remaining with solid oak floors, slate windows sills and hue stain glass windows to marvel at. 

Built in 1835, the religious history of the chapel enjoys idyllic views of the North Devon countryside. 

Photos of the 19th century chapel show that investors shouldn’t be put off by the thought of coffins, with garden furniture, wooden benches and hot tubs replacing the former.

It boasts historic exterior with modern interiors showing a swanky kitchen and a bathroom with a built-in walk in shower and roll top bath. 

The master bedroom, located on a mezzanine overlooks a stained glass window that shines down beams onto a glass floor.

The Ilfracombe chapel was converted in 2006 and has a second bedroom with access to a loft and built in storage.
