Condo of the Week: $585,000 for a heavenly suite in a converted church on Dovercourt
The Place: A two-bedroom slice of almost-literal heaven in a former Methodist church that was built in 1906 and converted to condos in 2010. There’s an open-concept living room, kitchen and dining area, with bedrooms off opposite sides.
Big Selling Point: Many condos in conversions don’t have balconies because the original structures makes them difficult to add. This one does.
Bragging Rights: Original stained-glass windows refract a kaleidoscope of colours into the living room and bedroom. Worshippers of nature will be especially happy with the subject matter—tulips, rather than religious figures.
Possible Deal Breaker: The kitchen counters are small, so they may not work for someone who throws weekly dinner parties, and while there might be room for a kitchen island or a big table, there probably isn’t for both.
