Real estate agents usually hype up their listings with heaps of hyperbole, but this Lakeview listing for a condo in the former Trinity Swedish Evangelical Lutheran Church at Seminary and Barry truly is divine. Taking a peek through the images, it’s clear that the unit maintains a balance of old architectural features and new finishes. While some old churches are completely gutted and refinished in the most economical way, this rehab job is certainly respectful to the building’s heritage and as a sacred site.
Features include sweeping ceilings with tall windows, exposed brick walls, a lofted master bedroom, and a really neat conversion of the existing bell tower into a home gym. There’s also a patio space large enough for grilling and having a few friends over. With four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms spanning 4,400 square feet of space, there’s enough room to be creative here. This lovely unit has returned to the market seeking $1.569 million.
