Converted Church Used As A Luxurious Holiday Retreat Comes To The Market

Nestled in the picturesque countryside of Dorset, a unique opportunity to purchase a slice of history has emerged. The Grade II listed, converted church in East Stoke, Wareham, boasts not only historical charm but also significant potential for lucrative holiday lettings income. 

On the market with DOMVS estate agents in Wareham, this remarkable residence offers a blend of traditional elegance and modern amenities, making it a popular choice for those seeking something a little different from their break. 

Originally constructed as a place of worship, this stunning property has undergone a transformation into a spacious and inviting retreat. With four bedrooms and an impressive open-plan layout, with an additional galleried area, the residence seamlessly integrates original features such as stained glass windows and soaring ceilings with contemporary comforts.

While this is a superb home, used by the current owners for half of the year, it would also suit property investors, due to its potential for high-value holiday lettings income. Situated in the heart of Dorset, a region renowned for its natural beauty and cultural attractions, the prime location ensures a steady stream of visitors throughout the year, with the allure of countryside serenity and nearby coastal adventures.

This unique property known as ‘The Tower’ is part of the original Church, built in 1829 on the River Frome, with its easy access to the river for canoeing. ‘The Tower’ incorporates the front entrance to the original Church and the remainder of the building has been beautifully restored to preserve its heritage. 

Commenting on the property, Alison Owens, Head of Sales for DOMVS in Wareham, remarked, “This converted church in East Stoke is a rare gem in the property market. Its historical significance coupled with modern amenities make it an attractive option for buyers looking for a turnkey home or holiday lettings investment. The potential for substantial income generation is undeniable, given the property’s charm and desirable location. Whether used as a private sanctuary or an income-generating asset, the home embodies the essence of luxury living amidst Dorset’s idyllic landscapes.
