The interior of this former church was converted into an expansive condo in 2008. Now it's on the market for $3,695,000.

Why it matters: This isn't the only church-turned-home in Denver. Scott Methodist Church was converted to condos in 1990, and just last week BusinessDen reported a 140-year-old Baker church will become townhomes.

Quick background: The church was built in the Cherry Creek neighborhood in 1902. In 2008, the property was redeveloped as a residential community called St. John’s Gardens.

  • The community also includes nine condos, six single-story units called The Flats, and two multi-story homes (The Rectory).
  • The exact address is 2401 E 5th Ave #1. At 5,358 square feet, it has 3 beds and 4 baths.

Architecture: The home maintains the architectural character and charm of the original church (think soaring ceilings, exposed beams, stained glass) while tying in some luxury comforts like a spacious kitchen, grand fireplaces, etc.

Highlights: Stunning architectural details, 35-foot ceiling, dining room that seats 20-plus, courtyard patio, low maintenance community, home office/library, wine cellar, home gym.

From the outside, you might not guess this is a condo.

With 35-foot ceilings, wood beams and beautifully curved archways and windows, the original structure of the church is seen throughout the home.

This fireplace is one of my favorite details in the home. It has enough grandeur to grab your attention but not so much it steals the show entirely.

Tied for one of my favorite details in the home, I love the way the bath sits under the stained glass. And the you get a glimpse of the beauty from the primary bedroom.
