Could a practicing Jew theoretically live in an old church converted into a home?

Personally I find the architecture of gothic style churches to be really beautiful. I’m generally just drawn to gothic architecture and historical buildings. I wish we still built things to look so intricate and interesting. I’ve always sort of had the dream that if I had money to buy an old church building I could convert it into a beautiful historic looking large home. I am not Jewish at the moment but in an attempt to connect with my Jewish heritage, I learned a lot about Judaism as well. I realized it just kind of clicks with me and I am pursuing conversion. As far as I have learned Jews are not supposed to enter Christian churches. If the building is no longer a church would a Jew be allowed to live in it as a home? Theoretical question of course because the likelihood is very low but it just got me thinking.
