Why we have a crush on this property:
If you’ve always been curious about what it’s like to live in a converted church, here’s a gorgeous chance to do so. From the Gothic arch door, to the soaring ceilings, it’s not hard to spot the traits that hint at its past life. These days, though, it’s been reimagined into two apartments, each with their own merits.
The more spacious unit includes the former church sanctuary, complete with a stage, dramatic lighting, and a hall massive enough to host the world’s largest Thanksgiving dinner, should you want to. Even the two balconies have been repurposed into a cute home office and an ultra cozy loft space.
The second apartment, though smaller, still comprises two bedrooms and two bathrooms, all outfitted in a style the listing describes as “a striking blend of 1880s historic features & eclectic French Caribbean.” Though this unit’s primary bedroom is sumptuous — painted a deep blue and outfitted with ample art, tapestries, and a four-poster bed — my favorite room, if I had to choose, would be the open kitchen and living room. From the red-and-white tile flooring and built-in couch, to the cathedral ceiling and natural wood cabinets, it’s such a soothing blend of rustic cozy and minimalist chic.
