Ghoulish home-hunters with a taste for the macabre are being offered the perfect home – a £450,000 Gothic church with its own graveyard.

Old Church House has been carefully restored to keep the original stained glass windows, church tower and even the altar.

It sits in a former graveyard in Lincolnshire with the occasional gravestone, but buyers can rest assured mourners rarely come now.

The Grade II-listed building in the small village of Cold Hanworth includes the church atrium and an ornate stone lychgate.

After unfastening the cast-iron gates to the property you pass beneath an ancient archway made with stones laid more than 150 years ago.

And a Gothic stone tower, crowned by an elaborate octagonal spire, peeps above the slate-covered gables of the three-bedroom property.

An estate agent said: ‘We had a few viewings as it is a beautiful home, but I think people may have been put off by the gravestones.’
