Kirkdale Apartments in Evie, Orkney, Scotland, is on the market for £525,000, or around $650,900, according to the online listing with K Allan Properties. 

The apartment building was formerly a kirk — the Scottish word for church — that dates back to 1886, the listing states. Jane Stanger and her husband purchased the property in 2010, Stanger told Insider. 

Stanger and her husband, who run a family-owned building company in Orkney, spent six years converting the church into a short-term holiday rental apartment building, and in 2016 Kirkdale Apartments opened for business.
