A sauna, 45ft high ceilings and grounds covering seven acres – it’s not everyday you stumble across a property as unique as this Grade II listed converted chapel in north west London
Converted into a luxurious four-bedroom house, the chapel forms part of the 8,000 sq ft gated development of St Joseph’s Gate in Mill Hill.
The building was originally set up in the mid 19th century by Cardinal Vaughan as the first Catholic missionary college in Britain and over its history has experienced some television glamour, having doubled as the East End convent in the BBC’s hit show Call the Midwife.
Now the incredible building has been remade into a family home with all the trimmings. It’s built across two levels with four bedrooms, a kitchen, several living areas and an office all finished to the highest levels of luxury.
And as you might imagine, a house of this size comes with a number of impressive extra rooms, including a cinema, a music room and a sauna and steam room on the ground floor.
There’s no doubt that London certainly has its fair share of luxury developments, but this one stands apart in its sheer size and grandeur.
One of the most extraordinary elements of the chapel is the full height living space in the original nave and sanctuary which has 45 ft high ceilings.
Another feat of design is the mezzanine bedroom suite which has a glass window looking out onto the chapel so you can wake up and admire your amazing home.
As with everything in the property, the decor screams elegance with muted colours of blue and light grey as well as crushed velvet upholstery throughout, which all help with the feeling of light and space that such a large chapel provides.

You probably won’t ever want to leave your beautiful surrounds but if you do, the development is set in seven acres of green space, which can be accessed through the orangery, leading on to a private courtyard patio.
Situated in Holborn Close, the chapel conversion is closest to Mill Hill Broadway rail station on the Thameslink line or Edgware Underground on the Northern Line, while also easily accessible via the M1 and M25.
