Condomonium: $800,000 for a converted condo in a Methodist church at Dovercourt and Bloor

ADDRESS: 701 Dovercourt Rd., Unit 305

NEIGHBOURHOOD: Palmerston-Little Italy

AGENT: Daiva Dalinda, Royal LePage

PRICE: $749,500

THE PLACE: A recently converted, 105-year-old Methodist church at Ossington and Bloor.

BRAGGING RIGHTS: Being ahead of the real estate curve. Right now, church conversions are hotter than Rob Ford’s temper (see our November issue for some of the city’s best). This development has preserved its holy heritage by incorporating the original steel trusses, brick, stained glass windows, cornice mouldings and even pews into the space.

BIG SELLING POINT: The building may be neo-Gothic, but it’s not gloomy: skylights were added to the vaulted ceiling to let extra light into the loft.

POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: Lapsed Christians might feel a bit guilty sleeping in on a Sunday morning with the sunlight streaming in through the stained glass windows.

BY THE NUMBERS: • $749,500 • $737.64 monthly maintenance fees • 1,370 square feet • 105 years of history • 19-foot ceilings • 2 bedrooms • 2 bathrooms • 1 powder room • 1 fireplace • 1 Juliet balcony • 1 parking space
