A Converted 19th Century Chapel in Bath

Close to the historic center of the English city of Bath stands a beautiful converted chapel that is now a light-filled family home with five bedrooms. Bath is a UNESCO World Heritage site, so it will come as no surprise that it’s packed with beautiful historic buildings, just like this old chapel.

The Victorian chapel spans 3,500 sq ft and could be perfectly restored to a grand family house. During the renovation work, the owners added discreet secondary glazing inside the windows to retain their elegant original frames, and the original proportions of the chapel have been reinstated to create a grand open-plan living space that shows the architectural history of the building.

The triple-height grand room is now home to an open-plan kitchen, dining, and living spaces. Tall arched windows flood the room with light but thanks to the high location you don’t have people peeking in.

The owners decorated the rooms in a light color palette with contemporary furnishings. Which is paired with classic oak floorboards.
