There’s a glass shell house for sale in Roxbury. It’s weird and cool; we’ve mentioned it before on the blog. We’ve also talked about the octagonal cabin. And now, to add another to our list of unique Roxbury properties, here’s a church, located right in the village.
Built in 1925, this used to be the Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic Church, which was closed by the Albany Diocese in 2011 (an article on its closing here). We saw it and immediately had that fantasy; you know the one. Chucking it all and moving to countryside to a ramshackle old church, complete with an 80s movie house cleaning montage.
Luckily, this church is hardly ramshackle and looks pretty good on the inside. Yes, it’s going to require some renovations in order to turn it into something other than a church. But it’s got a lot of promise and the price isn’t bad. Zoned commercial.
