Halloween may be a time of pumpkins and fancy dress for most, but for us, it’s the perfect opportunity to uncover some of the grandest, historic homes with spooky twists.

Many of the country’s Gothic churches and manor houses have been converted into beautiful – if not slightly mysterious – homes.

This grand architectural style has created some of the most beautiful properties on the market – we take a look.

St John’s Church, Hertfordshire – £2.35m

This church conversion has won awards for its blend of period features and 21st century technology – it includes concealed televisions, under-floor heating and a Bose sound system in the living and dining rooms.

The home is spread over three floors and the main reception area is within the original church nave, with a stunning vaulted ceiling.

Fitzhugh Grove, SW18 – £1.1m

This Brothers Grimm-style Gothic building is set on Wandsworth Common, and you can buy a three-bedroom home within the striking property for just over £1m.

The three-bed slice of the house has multiple mezzanine levels and a rooftop terrace.

Cliffe Park Hall, Chesham, Buckinghamshire – £600,000

This peculiar Grade II listed castle was built in 1811, with Gothic windows, doors and arches, Tudor-style arch heads, a stone-covered entrance and vaulted roof. Can you picture yourself entering through this arch everyday?

Hever Gardens, Kent – £800,000

A former hunting lodge, this Grade II listed home dates back to 1851. Built in the prime of the Victorian era, it boasts grand Gothic architecture, including high ceilings, a pitched roof balcony, beautiful fireplaces and a spiral staircase that leads to a turret.

Wyfold Court, Oxfordshire – £2.35m

You can buy a wing of this Grand II listed mansion for £2.35m. The large, four-bedroom apartment is set over three floors. It includes original period details, including fireplaces and a decorative drawing room ceiling.

The Old Rectory, Witham, Essex – £2.35m

This intricate, early Victorian Gothic country house has a stunning walled garden. The entrance hall has a galleried landing above and the French-polished, oak-carved staircase has elaborate balustrades and finials.

Plas yn Cwm, Denbighshire – £1,395,000

If you’re looking for something a little larger, this country home in Wales has nine bedrooms and a turret with a spire, stone-mullioned windows and beautiful stained glass. The main reception rooms have views over the park and the house has been modernised throughout.
