This 1890s brick church and school, located at 626 Bushwick Avenue right in Bushwick, has gotten a second life as a new development rental known as the Saint Marks. The church details aren’t all extinct, with brickwork and vaulting in some of the apartments. This two-bedroom unit is one of the most stunning in the building–and it’s now asking $3,925 a month. The top-floor location means that the elaborate arched ceilings decked out with mosaic tilework and carved wood tower above this lofty pad.
This unique floor plan is spread out over three levels, all under the church ceiling. The main level holds the great room and open kitchen. A staircase up takes you to one of the bedrooms, and then a ladder from the bedroom leads to an outdoor space.
By keeping the lower level open, each space looks out onto the incredible ceiling, and accesses light from the restored, peaked window.
The staircase takes you up to one of the bedrooms, which boasts double-height ceilings. From here you get a closer look at the incredible amount of detail that’s gone into the ceiling. The ladder leads to an outdoor space, though the listing does not say if it’s private to this unit.
The preserved church and schoolhouse is really quite stunning, and from the outside you would never know it was full of rentals. There are many more apartments here that have hit the market, ranging from $2,150 to $3,925 a month. To see the listings, go here.
