TAKE a look inside this incredible home – an unassuming church that comes to life once you enter.

The property began life as a Turkish bath, then became a church during the war – but now it’s decorated in a chic, fun house-themed style like nothing you’ve ever seen before.

During the war, the original St Leonards Parish Church was destroyed by a bomb – and The Bath House became an emergency church.

However, the property played this role for nearly 10 years, hosting countless weddings, before being sold to a science glass factory in the 1950s

It remained as a glass factory for the next forty years.

But that all changed in 2013, when the current owners bought the derelict building and began converting it into the incredibly unique family home it is today.

Located in St Leonards, East Sussex, the property has a beach on its doorstep – with stunning views to match.

And it’s full of history – with even the kitchen showing glimpses of the original tiling that bordered the swimming bath it began life as in 1875.

Complete with its own bowling alley, the property is up for sale with offers over £1,500,000.

The property, listed on Zoopla is described as “one of the most historic, cleverly converted homes in St Leonards.


“Its past tells stories of a school swimming bath, a Church and a glass factory.

“Completely dilapidated on purchase, our vendors have renovated this wonderous property into a family property with bowling alley and home cinema.

“With a plethora of fine and fun features, exciting entertaining spaces meet comfortable family living, all under one roof.”
