An airy Swedish church conversion could be yours for 2.6m SEK

A 19th-century former Baptist church has come up for sale in Sweden, hidden away in the forests of Uppsala County.

The church was built in 1889 and remained a house of worship for almost a century. It was renovated by Inger Zetterblom, who preserved as many of its historic features as possible, while swapping its congregation for B&B guests.

Glädjens Kapell (or Joy Chapel), as the Swedish property is known, has an open-plan ground floor with a double-height space at its heart. Large windows pour light into the white-washed living area, which spans 358 sqm.

A galleried first floor features nine beds separated by curtains.
