Spire Court, in Beckenham, south London, was developed over two years, with each flat keeping many original features.

The granite in the kitchen is sourced from the same Scottish quarry where the granite cladding on the original church columns originated.

Also, the stone carvings in many rooms were previously exposed on the top of the six large columns that supported the church's tongue and groove wooden arched roof.

The church during development

The original church - built in 1887 - served the local community until 2004 when the congregation reduced to 'unmanageable levels.'

The United Reformed Church moved into the hall just behind the development, where they still are today.

WDS Design Ltd bought the property and spent two years developing it, trying to keep as much of the original unique, church design features on show as possible.

Developer David Sweeting told Mirror Online: "The spire was originally open from bottom to top.

"There were no bells and the spire was not used.

"We decided to bring the spire back into use by placing stairs inside and a balcony walkway from the flat.

"These stairs extend four levels above the balcony and allow access to the top level – the highest viewing point in Beckenham.

"The spire has power and is linked to the multi-room music system. Indeed the balcony level was used as an office, the second level as a gym and the remainder storage.

"Kestrels have also been known to nest in the spire, so uses are not only by humans."

The refurbishment achieved the award for Best Refurbishment in the Bromley Council environmental awards 2006 and the church was given a local listed status.
