Welcome to the Church House!

our house

This remarkable residence and private music and art destination is now available for purchase.

A 175 year-old former church beautifully converted to a residence, this stunning building is conveniently situated in a lovely rural setting in Haddam, Connecticut, a short stroll from a delightful waterside restaurant and full-service marina on the Connecticut River just 13 nautical miles from Long Island Sound, almost perfectly centered between Boston and New York City.

Since its brilliant 1971 renovation with the guidance of American Post-Modernist "starchitect" Charles Moore, this inspiring conversion has a one-of-a-kind pedigree, and a forty-year legacy of ownership by artisans.

The magnificent 26' x 33' studio living room, with its high ceiling and four towering antique glass north and south facing windows, is an incredible setting for creative activity, including photography, painting, and the magical intimacy of live music among friends.

In addition to the studio/living room, the structure features two bedrooms, one and a half baths, a full kitchen, a high-ceiling basement with attached shed, and parking for several vehicles.

From 2001 to 2009, a series of popular "house concerts" in the living room became a cultural high point in the lower Connecticut River Valley. (Please note: Church House Concerts hosted its final events in Spring, 2009. Performers' submissions will not be responded to.)

If you have ever dreamed of living an inspired life in a creative sanctuary, act immediately to realize your dream... Buy it now, fit it for your needs this Spring, and enjoy a creative summer in this exceptional, unforgettable space.

For more information, please inquire to the owners.

Disclosure: this property is owned by two artists, one of whom is a Realtor. It is not yet listed on the Multiple Listing Service.
