Seventh heaven – this divine Knightsbridge church conversion comes with a £50m price tag

You'll have to say your prayers before you step inside this luxurious church conversion: not only does it come complete with a cinema, gold leaf bath and a juice bar, it officially still retains its status as a place of worship

Fancy bagging yourself a mansion? You'll probably need more than your fair share of divine intervention to get your hands on this spectacular £50 million London bolt hole.

Although the house is not officially for sale, but it has been 'placed' with only a handful of super-rich people so they can register their interest.

The multi-million pound home features a 30ft swimming pool, hot tub room, private treatment room and a home cinema.

To travel around the opulent mansion visitors can use a plush bronze lift hidden inside a spiral
staircase. Other features include a sauna and steam room, juice bar and gym.

Developers Rigby & Rigby describe the property as 'undeniably one of the finest private homes in Knightsbridge.'

The conversion still features the original beams for the church as well as nave columns and
mullioned windows.
