What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Goin’ to the Chapel!


Evolution Design

In the tiny English village of Forest-in-Teesdale, an old, abandoned chapel has been lovingly brought back to life as a gorgeous residence. Rehabilitated by the award-winning architects at Evolution Design, the building retains its charming, traditional exterior, while sporting gorgeous, modern designs on the interior.

The house has three bedrooms (with a bonus junior bedroom), each with its own bath. The house also features a charming kitchen, and a large dining/living area.

“Set in the very best walking area of the beautiful North Pennines, just a short walk from the famous High Force Waterfall, this stunning chapel conversion with its historic building fabric and modern interior design is a real Teesdale jewel. The original windows of the nineteenth century building have been reopened, framing dramatic views of the dales to create a spacious and luxurious self-catering holiday cottage for seven guests.

For a mere $232 per night, you can book a stay at this beautiful historical building on AirBNB.

  2. In Memphis TN there is a large Sears building. It had been empty for over 15 years. When I left they were converting it into appartments for low income people. I hope this happens to all old building and they don’t get knocked down. hal

  4. Its fantastic that these great old structures are coming back to life


  5. It’s a lovely conversion in that new life has been breathed into the old bones while preserving a lot of the original features. I think that gives it its charm.
