When this listing calls this condo “one of a kind,” they aren’t kidding: This apartment was carved from the former Pentecostal Church at 541 Leonard Street in Williamsburg. (These day’s it’s not at all uncommon for religious buildings to go residential.) The building holds three apartments total, all with three bedrooms and three bathrooms, boasting keyed elevator access, 20-foot wood-beamed ceilings and access to private outdoor space. This particular apartment is now on the market for $3.3 million.
Churches are notoriously difficult to convert, due to the big, open worship spaces and the cathedral ceilings. But this conversion has incorporated the beamed, arched ceilings and made them part of the appeal. Even the church casement windows have been preserved. The result is an open, high-ceilinged space for both the living room, dining room and kitchen.
The big kitchen is outfitted with Brazilian walnut cabinetry, Caesarstone counters and tons of pantry space.
There’s even an extra “flex space” in the apartment that’s lit by a skylight. Looks like the current owners are using it as an office.
There isn’t a room in the apartment that doesn’t have church touches — this is the master bedroom and the master bathroom. Although you can’t see it in the above photo, there are wood beams running above the tub.
Not pictured in the listing are the outdoor spaces, which include a covered terrace and an uncovered balcony with views of the Manhattan skylight. Talk about something to worship!
