Own a piece of Topton's treasured history! This historic 1800's church has been renovated into a large family residence which is accompanied by an attached apartment. Originally built in the late 1800's and known as the St Peters Union Church, this home has a tasteful mix of original features yet has been updated to suit today's more modern lifestyle. The first floor consists of a warm and inviting front living room with french doors that lead you through to an office area and a large family room area open to the kitchen. This area showcases some of the character and charm of the original church. There is a breakfast nook with pew bench seating and the focal point of the altar, with a 2-story wall of book shelving and a balcony from the 2nd floor choir loft. A first-floor bath / laundry room is situated in a separate room conveniently located just off of the kitchen and there is a rear exit door to access a private screen enclosed back porch.
