Divine real estate


Recommended Posts

I have a client that's considering purchasing this for a residence. If it was in a better location, I would be attempting to out bid him.

I've inspected many historic churches, meetinghouses and even all the buildings in a monastery, but this one is the coolest. It's current use is an antique store, but everything original remains: stained glass windows, hanging brass/copper lighting, huge working pipe organ, industrial kitchen, six baths and it's 28'-30' up to the trusses. 16500 sq. ft.

You might want to suggest he find out whether or not the church has ever been "de-sanctified" or something similar. That's important to some people. I've been involved with two different buildings that had once been churches. Both of them had ceremonies performed to "un-church" them.
