About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1 loft, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 9

Chandler Riggs' (Carl's) parents invite you to their beautiful 2400 square ft home that was originally a church! Built in 1890, the church was converted to a home in the early 2000's. The home is one block from the quaint town of Senoia (which is better known as Woodbury from the show), where you will find dozens of shops and restaurants. You will also be within a few blocks of the Alexandria set, as well as the pudding house, the coma house, and other memorable set locations. The church house was featured in the movie Pet Sematary 2. And as an added bonus, the home has a real grave in the side yard, where a confederate soldier is buried.

When you enter the home, prepare to be in awe of the beautiful stained glass window in the kitchen. The main living space boasts 15 ft. ceilings with an antique chandelier. The kitchen is fully stocked. The kitchen is open to the living/eating area where you'll find the walls adorned with art given to Chandler by his fans. A 65" tv is mounted to the wall and you'll find the furniture to be an interesting mix of both antique and new. The original preacher's chair was saved with the church and sits in one of the two foyers.

With 3 bedrooms, one loft, and 2.5 baths, there's ample space for up to 9 guests to sleep comfortably. The master bedroom sits where the preacher's pulpit was originally located. The king sized bed is flanked by two beautiful stained glass windows, and you will be able to see the markings on the floor where the pulpit platform once was. The room also includes an en suite bathroom with a tub, shower, two vanities, separate WC, and a walk-in closet.

The second bedroom has a queen sized bed with beautiful luxury farmhouse-style bedding and a walk-in closet. The third bedroom has a twin size daybed with a trundle. There is also a small loft in this room with a twin sized mattress. This room has a walk-in closet.

A spiral staircase leads to a bonus loft area where you'll find a twin daybed with a trundle.

There is one full hallway bathroom and one powder room.

For Walking Dead fans in town for tours, or for guests who are just looking for a unique place to get away, this house is one of a kind!

Why Gina-Ann Riggs chose Senoia

We have spent many days in the quaint town of Senoia and have grown to love it. We were so excited the day we saw that the church house was for sale. Senoia is swarming with tourists and there are not many options for places to stay. We are happy to offer our beautiful home for guests to get to know this town that we have grown to love.

What makes this house unique

The home is located in the historic district of Senoia. It was originally the Presbyterian Church of Senoia, built in 1890. There is a grave in the side yard. Captain Thomas Peavy was one of the only confederate soldiers from the area to survive the Civil War. The home was featured in the movie Pet Sematary 2. It is one block from Main St. and two blocks from the set of The Walking Dead. Once you are here, no car is needed!

We all agreed,best time ever! Great place

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place. Gorgeous! I can’t say enough about the design and decor. We sat around saying “why didn’t I think of that”. Superb. We had a mix of family members from 13-60 and everyone had something to do, a place to be and smiles all around. The pin ball machine was a hit with everyone and we had a great boys against girls foosball match. Great family place. So close to town, quick walk around the corner. The morning church bells from down the street made morning coffee on the patio so delightful. This is beautifully outfitted with everything you could possibly need. Not the typical cheap knives and lousy plates and glasses. Just what I have in my own home. The beds were so comfortable and nice linens. And the historic nature of the place was so intriguing. The floors, gorgeous, the beadboard ceiling, gorgeous. The stained glass windows and all the original windows carefully preserved, just WOW.

The family from Utah is always saying how everything is better, fancier, cooler there. But this time, they couldn’t find anything even close to this. A perfect home run. If the owners will have us back, next trip, we will stay again. If I could give 10 stars I would.

Loved, Loved, Loved!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely gorgeous!! The pictures do not do it justice. The stained glass is amazing and the decor is beautiful. My family and i had a wonderful time playing the arcade machines and the board games. The town of Senoia is beautiful, relaxing and i loved all the historic homes. We did the Walking Dead Tour (highly recommend!) had dinner at Nic and Norms (Delish!) and did a little shopping downtown. I hope to be back soon. Thank you for sharing this beautiful home with us.

Amazing Walking Dead Experience

  • 5 of 5

The owners were very kind and the house was welcoming! Perfect walking distance to everything Walking Dead. Such a peaceful, clean, beautifully decorated place. One of the best experiences I’ve had away from home. Can’t say enough good things about it. Pinball machine for hours of entertainment and songbirds singing through stained glass windows in the master bedroom. Perfect!

If you stand on the front porch of the house and look to the right, you'll see the walls of the fictional town of Alexandria. Filming is typically going on from May - November. There are several Walking Dead tours to choose from. If you're there on a Saturday, we'd recommend our tour, Dad's Zombie Road Trip. See for more info.
