This Quaint, Old Family Home Is Really Rather Unusual… (9 pics)

52 year old, UK designer, Jane Steed, fell in love with this cosy cottage on her first visit to it and decided there and then that it was the perfect home for her small family. But this house has one feature...

 

Built in South Hampton, the house is a former mortuary chapel located in the middle of a Jewish Cemetery and is surrounded by graves, dating back as far as the 1800s. The family insist that the house is not ‘spooky’ at all and has a ‘nice feeling’ about it, which is due, in part, to its complete renovation on the inside. From the outside however, the building maintains many of its former features including gargoyle statues and mullioned windows. Builder Mr Blatchford spent a year and $161,000 turning the ramshackle property into the family's dream home.
