Warsaw, Ontario is known for its natural attractions more than its real estate, but a church conversion on the banks of the Indian River is proof that beautiful architecture can be found in unexpected places.
While 105 Ford Street certainly retains clues of its past life -- it has tall, arched windows, cathedral ceilings, and a bell tower -- it has been completely renovated and outfitted with everything a homeowner could possibly need.
The main floor of the home includes the living and dining areas, as well as an eat-in kitchen. In the corner of the living area, a wood-burning stove is framed against a masonry hearth. High ceilings soar overhead throughout, while wood floors, beams, trims, and wainscotting lend an unmistakable feeling of warmth to the entire space.
A staircase leads up to the home's second storey, where you’re greeted with a catwalk connecting three of the property’s four bedrooms. The primary bedroom, painted green, includes walkout access to one of the property’s two private balconies. The fourth bedroom is located in a separate apartment on the property, but the listing notes that it can be easily incorporated into the main home.
And that bell tower we mentioned earlier isn't just for show. It has been renovated to include a home office space, flush with natural light from windows on the east and west sides of the structure.

Our Favourite Thing
This home is rustic, romantic, and truly one of a kind. We love how every weathered floorboard, exposed ceiling beam, and latticed window gives a peek into its unique past. Oh, and did we mention that this property includes a secret garden? In whimsical fashion, you'll find it under a thick canopy of vines.
105 Ford Street is located in the historic Hamlet of Warsaw, just five minutes from Highway 7 and a 20-minute drive from the City of Peterborough. The Warsaw Caves Conservation Area -- a network of trails, camping sites, and underground limestone caverns -- is just a seven-minute drive away.
This church-turned-home is perfect for anyone looking to slow down, soak up nature, and appreciate small-town life.
