Combining a desirable Lakeview location with unique architectural details, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom duplex penthouse inside the former Pillar of Fire Church has a lot offer. In addition to its 15-foot skylit ceilings, the unit features original 1880 truss-work and an eye-catching oversized ‘oculus’ window. The home’s kitchen includes track lighting, stone countertops, stainless appliances, and a breakfast bar. A lofted bonus room could serve as a TV room, home office, or an extra sleeping area.

Though not quite as stunning as the $1.5 million condo in the converted church around the corner at 3101 N. Seminary, the newly-listed residence is a relative value at $519,000. With a private rooftop terrace, heated one-car garage spot, and an additional storage room also included, the deal looks that much sweeter.
