Mezzanine flooring turns church into unique home

Posted by Mark

As part of the sympathetic renovation of a Pentecostal church in Ramsgate, a  mezzanine flooring  mezzanine flooring level has been installed to make the best use of the headroom while retaining the original vaulted ceiling with its exposed beams and trusses.

Several additional internal features have been installed using reclaimed materials from neighbouring properties. Floorboards and an original roll-top bath from the recent demolition of the Castlemere Hotel in nearby Broadstairs have been used, as well as radiators from a local refurbished school.

Access to the new mezzanine flooring level is by a spiral staircase, while entry into the main reception area is by way of old pine doors. In addition to the large reception area, the property has four double bedrooms and two bathrooms as well as an additional shower room. It also offers a large kitchen diner, a utility room and a study. A delightful private courtyard to the rear of the building completes the accommodation.

Within walking distance of the seafront, the town centre and the railway station, the property is being sold by a local family that bought the chapel in its original condition in 2000 and has spent the last 13 years on the project. While much of the internal renovations have been completed by the family, much of the more technical building works have been undertaken by professional builders.

Needing only the most minor finishing touches, this unique home on the Kent coast is now on the market with a price tag of £299,000.
