Heaven in Devon


Ilfracombe is a small coastal town of around 12,000 in the picturesque southwest English county of Devon, which is dotted with seaside resorts, historic sights and Exmoor National Park. (Note: Devon is also known for its mild weather!) It's also where you'll find this roomy 5 bedroom/3 bath Victorian for the reasonable asking price of around $470K. Although the 1881 brick not actually listed as a church, it certainly looks like one, what with its gothic doorways and many arched, stained glass windows. There are high ceilings, intricate moldings and medallions, marble fireplaces plus a gorgeous carved wooden staircase and period-tile entrance. Who wouldn't believe in a higher power if you woke up looking at this sight (pictured, right) each morning? For more info/pics, go here
