For an increasing number of homeowners around the world, living in a converted former church is an attractive option to avoid the monotony of cookie-cutter conventional homes. From single-family chapels to enormous church compounds, a deconsecrated church is the perfect home for someone with an eye for sky-high ceilings and a truly unique space.

Depending on the individual deconsecrated, converted church, there may even be a graveyard as a part of the deal--something that will either appeal to a buyer or turn them off entirely. These images are from a recent BBC series on converted church homes from London to Scotland.
