Real estate is almost on a par with religion for many New Yorkers, and this $1.95 million co-op in a 1850 Gothic church at 99A Clinton Street in the heart of Brooklyn Heights could be the answer to your prayers. The stunning stone church was converted to a 10-unit co-op in the 1970s.

Tall oak double doors open into the foyer of this unique Brooklyn home. The living and dining area that anchors the lower level is spacious enough to entertain the whole congregation. Highlights include a slate-framed wood-burning fireplace and hand-hewn timber beaming. An immense stained glass window illuminates the space with jewel-toned light.

A full library wall in the dining area balances the home’s spiritual side with intellectual weight–and provides a place to display your favorite books and beloved objects.

Off the living room, a windowed galley kitchen has a down-to-earth vibe with rustic scraped wide-plank oak flooring. Chef-worthy Bosch and Fisher Paykel appliances make it as functional as it is stylish. Also on this floor of the home is a laundr/powder room with a Bosch stackable washer/dryer.

Up that winding staircase, a balcony area works as a home office or a spot for contemplation.

The master bedroom was once the church’s choir loft. It’s here that you’ll behold the most dramatic of the home’s striking ecclesiastical architecture in the form of a massive  Gothic window that arches from the floor to the ceiling above. The bedroom offers an en-suite bath decked with custom imported Moroccan tile. There’s a second bedroom and bath up here as well.
