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.
- This points to a larger trend of older churches being developed into newer concepts, from apartments to night clubs.
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.
- The renovation was designed by Don Ruggles.
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.
