I have one last set of photos of Cape Cod buildings to share. I have always wanted to live in a house that was transformed from something else – like an old school house or church. There are a couple of such conversion spaces in Sandwich, MA that I wanted to share. This first house is, in fact a private home. It used to be a doll museum and before that, a church. I am dying to get into this home!!
The brick building below used to be the Catholic Church. It is now a bed and breakfast and part of The Belfry Inn. This space is now called The Abbey.
This “Painted Lady” Victorian was the rectory for the Catholic church and sits next door. It sure didn’t look this spiffed up when it was housing the parish priests!
And finally, just outside of Sandwich is this recently closed down chapel, which was part of the Sandwich Catholic church. This would certainly make a fantastic art gallery, condo building or single family home. Plus, plenty of room for parking!
Just take a look at that shingle work and the subtle stained glass windows.
