As we celebrate a week full of renovated homes on the market, we are crushing hard on this Gothic-style church in Columbia County. It’s pretty much everything we want in a renovation: It was built for another purpose but transformed into a unique living space that keeps all the best things about the original construction. Also, stained glass windows. Need we say more?
The 3214-square foot space is wide-open and bright with the sanctuary kept as a loft area that would be perfect for artistic pursuits. Includes hardwood floors, original wood features, soaring ceilings, new roof, new electric, and new plumbing. The church, which was built in 1897, comes with three bedrooms, three full baths, updated kitchen with farm basin sink and stainless steel appliances, and a laundry room.
The lot itself is pretty small, which is usually the case in converted churches, but the quarter-acre yard does come with a garden, according to the listing. Located less than 20 minutes from Hudson city and the Amtrak train station.
Curious to see what it looked like pre-renovation? Scroll down to the bottom of the listing photos for “before” photos when the church was on the market back in 2012.
