Gothic Revival church turned luxury rental apartment: only in New York. That’s the story behind 232 Adelphi Street, a majestic Fort Greene church built in 1888. It fell into disrepair before being converted into 12 apartments in recent years. This is the last apartment left empty and it’s a pricy one. It’s also big: an 1,800-square-foot duplex with two bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths, all accessed via a private entrance.

Like any good church conversion, the modern additions have been blended with the old-world church details. Exposed brick and new hardwood floors are set against detailed stained glass panels and dramatic transverse arches. Perhaps out favorite room is the kitchen, which was built with totally modern appliances but still boasts an incredible doorway with stained glass details.

A floor plan shows that the living room and bedrooms are upstairs, with the lower level of the duplex has been configured as an expansive rec room with storage space. An open staircase and skylight bring some natural light down there.

No church details in here: the bathrooms are totally modernized.
