Talk about a living arrangement that’s holier than thou. This chapel is part of the former Edwin Denison Morgan III estate in Old Westbury, Long Island. The impressive estate, complete with gardens and fountains, was designed by the great Stanford White in the late-19th century, and now its chapel is on the market for $3.25 million. (It’s a price decrease from last year, when it hit the market for $4.3 million.) Amazingly, the chapel was once connected to the estate’s other buildings by tunnels, though it was converted a while back to a four-bedroom home. Cathedral ceilings, stained-glass windows designed by John La Farge–the stunning space has got everything, not to mention a heated gunite pool and putting green outside.
A modest entryway into the home doesn’t hint at the majestic interior to come.
The great room of the former cathedral is decked out with stained glass windows, carved wood, built-in shelving and an imposing fireplace.
The den features the second of three fireplaces in the house.
The formal dining off the great room boasts coffered ceilings.
A more casual dining area is adjacent to the light-filled kitchen.
The upper level is also dripping with incredible details, with more stained glass and carved wood.
The master bedroom has extra space for a sitting area and leads out onto a patio overlooking the property.
The master bathroom is bright and spacious.
If you can’t get enough of the cathedral ceilings, you’ll also find them in this upper floor sitting room, alongside more stained glass.
Finally, here’s a look at the pool that tops off this one-of-a-kind property. This piece of Stanford While does not disappoint. Just be sure to check out a few more interior images in the gallery below.
