Church Turned Home Listed in Green Lake
Many homes in Seattle have unique stories and long histories, but this home in Green Lake is especially interesting.
The converted church, built in 1914, served as a place of worship for a number of denominations over the years, said listing agent Beth Bylund. It was most recently home to a Pillar of Fire church, which is part of a Methodist sect. It was built in 1914 and was an active church until 1996. The sellers bought the property and turned it into a private residence.
The seller spared no expense in upgrading it while preserving elements of its spiritual past. You can still find an old bell in the bell tower, and the top floor has been turned into a chic loft with the signature soaring ceilings of a place of worship.
The 5,390 square foot home has five bedrooms and 3½ bathrooms spread over two floors and a basement. The lower level of the residence has four bedrooms and a separate kitchen, while the master suite on the top level provides sweeping views of the area.
The entire property sits on almost one-third of an acre, which is a rare find in tightly packed Green Lake.
It’s listed for $2.8 million and has been on the market for less than 24 hours. You can see the full listing here.
