Here’s a rarity, located in the Sullivan County hamlet of Mountain Dale: A church converted into a two-family residence.
If there’s one thing we love more than a converted barn, it’s a converted church. The latter of those is available in abundance around the Hudson Valley and Catskills, but converted churches? Those are less abundant, so we’ll take it as a sign from the heavens that we should take a closer look at this one.
Consisting of 3,650 square feet, this former church was built at the turn-of-the-century and later renovated into a residence with an apartment in the bell tower, making the church an official “multi-family” dwelling. The main residence occupies the church’s nave, which traditionally extends from the entrance to the alter, and includes a loft balcony, high ceilings, and built-ins. The master bedroom and en suite bath are also on the first floor.
Includes wood floors throughout, as well as four bedrooms and four baths combined in both residences. Each residence has its own meter and programmable thermostats that are smart phone-compatible.
Extensive outside decking means you can enjoy your perch right in the center of Mountain Dale, a charming hamlet that’s experiencing a recent Renaissance thanks to an investor “curating” the town and buying up several properties.
From this converted church, you can walk to town for a bite to eat, a peek at an art gallery, and shop for antiques.
