LAST SOLD FOR $230,000 in 1997
PROS This converted 1928 church offers a more literal take on cathedral ceilings, with exposed rafter beams and a medieval-feeling chandelier overhead. As in a loft, furnishings and other cues segment the main living space, where built-in seating surrounds a gas fireplace. Original details remain, from the beautiful woodwork and stained-glass windows throughout to a confessional booth that’s now a powder room. The chan-cel where the altar was is now a dining area fit for any feast, with an updated kitchen off one side. There are two bedrooms on the main floor, including a master suite with a full bath, and three more upstairs. The former chapel, with choir loft, makes for an epic game room. A stone patio offers peeks of the ocean. CONS The heating and cooling bills must be staggering.
