For sale: Former Leeds church will leave one lucky buyer beaming


A former Leeds church complete with stained glass windows, wooden beams and an ornate archway entrance is being offered to house-buyers.

Churchfield House, a “lovingly converted” rendition of Pudsey Unitarian Church, has been put on the market.

Estate agents Leeds Fine & Country are advertising the stunning 5,078 sq ft Church Lane building which is next to the Masonic Hall – for those with a spare £750,000 to hand over.

Emma Chadwick Smith, manager of the Shadwell Lane branch, said: “The owners have always wanted a church property and they had looked at numerous properties.

“They just fell in love with this one, really.

“For them, they wanted a church that didn’t have a graveyard and graves buried below.”

The owners, who wish to remain anonymous, bought the church in 2012 after congregation levels dwindled, she said.

“We’ve only had one other church on the market since we’ve been here and that was in 2012, and that’s when these guys bought this church,” she added.

The home incorporates both new and old features, retaining some of its original characters.

Stained glass windows have been professionally cleaned and encapsulated within double glazed units, and original church ceiling beams have been restored. The basement, ground and first floor have five bedrooms, three reception rooms and three bathrooms.

An open house event will be held by appointment only.
