This beautiful piece of history, built in 1881, has been masterfully cared for by the same family for the past 23 years. This church/home has been a space for creative inspiration for decades, housing multiple artists for the past half century! Zoned single family residential- nonetheless- it offers 2 units. Masterfully preserved, you'll appreciate the timeless beauty in this sanctuary for the arts. The basement and foundation have had extensive work to ensure the basement is dry and the structure is sound. As you enter you're offered a path up or down. The path UP leads to a sanctuary, and a partitioned apartment space- like a studio. Farther up the stairs you'll find the choir loft- an amazing space ready for your creative uses! And yet farther up another set of stairs you'll find the steeple room, unfinished, (though heated!) but it is amazing opportunity for a romantic loft bedroom! All of the most expensive fundamental items have been replaced and updated! Including: - New Roof- New Electrical wiring (some old remains)- Two new furnaces and new AC and all new ductwork- New aluminum siding- New gutters and downspouts- Repaired stained glass windows- Added two bedrooms, both with kitchen, bath, bedrooms- Repaired/replaced floors-Upgraded electrical panel and service- Structural support for foundation - Repaired chimney and cap- New plumbing, added plumbing to upper floors- Drywall repair and painting-Reconfigured sanctuary for art studio space including cabinets for storage and work space Despite all these amazing updates- the history has been preserved! Images of the church line the sanctuary wall, framed in pieces of the former pews. DOWNSTAIRS- you'll find the second studio unit, with a full kitchen, and full bath and giant open space, with its own entry in the rear of the property, and front entry access as well. This property has endless potential and history-come see for yourself! Property has no parking except on street. Property sold AS IS due to the age.
