Rad Reno: Historic NYC Church Converted Into Modern Masterpiece

Rad Reno: Historic NYC Church Converted Into Modern Masterpiece

These days, what’s old is new again – especially when it comes to real estate. Instead of tearing old buildings down, horse barns become family homes and hospitals find new life as hotels. But rarely in Manhattan do you find a converted home as dramatic as this one: a Romanesque Revival church-turned-boutique condominium.

You’d never guess that behind the façade of the 1860s Methodist church is a series of ultramodern, state-of-the-art apartments. The most impressive of the lot, perhaps, is the West Village building’s penthouse duplex.

With two stories – a rarity, as any Manhattanite knows – three bedrooms, and a 500-square-foot, lush terrace, there’s more than ample living space. British hunk and leading man, Jude Law, thought so, too. Curbed reports that the actor rented the apartment during a stint on Broadway back in 2009.

Now, the grandiose, 3,500-square-foot apartment is on the market, meaning you, too, can live like a Hollywood star (or member of the clergy, your choice). Well, if you have $12.495 million to spare, that is.

Noteworthy details include 20-foot high ceilings on the upper floor, original stained glass windows, media room, and floating staircase. Yes, floating.

The home was last sold in 2009 for $6.3 million, but with the possibility of Law’s DNA still lingering somewhere in the penthouse, the nearly doubled asking price seems appropriate.
