The place

An unfurnished two-floor condo in the Abbey Lofts.

The history

Built in 1910, this Presbyterian church was taken over by a condo developer 12 years ago. The owner bought this unit in 2006. She brought in her own architect to work on the interior and specialty carpenters to create custom built-in shelving and storage throughout the space. Now she’s moving into a house, but plans to keep this property as a retirement pied-à-terre and rent it out in the meantime. It’s available immediately.

Here’s the living area. All the wood panelling is American cherry:
