12th Century Church & Chapel in France for $178k


The property is accessed via a country lane surrounded by extensive grasslands. The slate bell tower, topped with a cockerel, symbol of vigilance, can be seen from afar. The remainder of the roof is covered with flat tiles. The Romanesque church which dates back to the 12th century is in the commune’s old market town. It was abandoned after the construction of another church which replaced it and resulted in the moving of the village. Its 15th century bell was taken down and installed in the new edifice. It has been redesigned several times over the centuries. The current residents have preserved the premises where they have been carrying out works for four years. The large, walled floor surface areas and the vaults from the Romanesque period easily lent themselves to another transformation: the chapel is now the kitchen, the sacristy a toilet and the nave a reception room. The land surrounding the church is partially grassland and comprises a small car park.
