Holy Houses, People—it's Church Conversions!
Just so you have something significant to think about this weekend—and, ok, because it's one of our favorite themes—today's three homes all started out as houses of worship. The most spectacular might be this nearly 5000 square foot 3 bed/2 bath condo in what used to be St. John's Lutheran Church in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Asking $1.189 million, it has—you may want to sit down for this—26 stained glass windows, 38 foot high vaulted ceilings, and a master bedroom in the former choir loft (pictured). Everything has been updated to the highest level imaginable—from the sleek kitchen with stainless appliances and custom cabinetry, to a bath with a 2-person shower. And the location can't be beat: in the hipster nabe of Lawrenceville, close to downtown and most of the city's universities and hospitals. Are you hearing angels, too? Maybe they want you to take a closer look here
