Published Jan 18, 2013If you're a music fan in the market to buy a church, then we've got some good news for you: Arcade Fire are looking to sell the church where they recorded parts of 2007's Neon Bible and 2010's The Suburbs.
The church is in Farnham, QC, located about an hour's drive away from Montreal. Arcade Fire bought the building following the success of 2004's Funeral and turned the basement into a recording studio called Petite Église. Among the bands who have recorded at the facility since then are Wolf Parade and Timber Timbre.
Arcade Fire tweeted a link to a real estate listing, which promises an entrance hall, nave, kitchen, dining room, mezzanine, three bedrooms, common room, two bathrooms, laundry room, grounds with trees, and more.
The listing reads, "Charming church which housed a small concert hall, followed by a recording studio also offering accommodation. Its architecture makes it a perfect location for an artist's studio, a place of worship, a cultural, community or other organization. Offer here a unique setting to your project! "
The price is $325,000, but be forewarned — the roof needs to be fixed and will cost between $24,300 and $44,200 (based on estimates). Arcade Fire moved into a new space because of the roof problems.
