If you’re looking for a historic home with plenty of character in a quaint coastal village, this property will sound heavenly: a landmark church on West Elm Street in Yarmouth that has been converted into a residence. Built in 1898 as a Methodist house of worship, the building had been vacant and boarded up for many years until undergoing a rehabilitation about 16 years ago. Subsequent owners put in wood floors, a high-end kitchen, a covered porch, and a beadboard ceiling in the living/dining area, which, at 25 feet tall, shows the full height of the old church. Meantime, original details such as arched, diamond-shaped, and stained-glass windows and an elaborately carved balustrade have been preserved — thank God.
