This fortified church located in a river valley in the Baden-Württemberg countryside is on the market for just under €950,000. The home is the first to be featured in The Local’s Property of the Week series.

The converted church – St. Anna in the Rose Garden – nestles in the picturesque Neckar Valley near Heidelberg and the Rhine.

Built in the 12th Century, it once served as a seat for the Swabian dynasty of south-western Germany.

The tower, inlaid Italian marble flooring and original stained-glass windows have been carefully preserved.

CLICK HERE for a tour of the house.

The attic features beautiful oak beams, the vaulted cellar – complete with a well – has a shiny dolomite floor and the tower’s spiral staircase is made of sandstone.

Even the bathroom taps are worth a look.
