Converted 11th Century Church in Wales Which Featured on George Clarke’s the Restoration Man Will Go to Auction at £250,000

A church conversion that was one of the first homes to feature on George Clarke’s The Restoration Man is to go under the hammer for a snip at just £250,000.

The rural pad in Pembrokeshire, Wales, was only the second property to feature on the hit Channel 4 show, which ran from 2010 to 2017.

But the latest owner has now decided to sell up and the former church will go to auction this week with a guide price of a quarter of a million.

The Restoration Man followed brave homeowners as they attempted to convert or renovate historic properties into modern homes.

Episode two featured Gareth Williams and Jill Austin who, despite having no experience at all, fell in love with the building and planned to convert it with a tiny budget of just £55,000.

They ended up sourcing most of their materials on eBay and wanted an unusual pad for their sons aged 12 and nine after living in a bog standard terraced house.

As well as being an unusual building, the church, near Mathry, comes with its very own graves which have to stay and a freshwater spring, which was found by water dowsing.

George was sceptical that Gareth could do the work for his budget and the final bill did in fact come in at £77,000.
