In 1890 this was a Swedenborgian Church- nestled on a hill overlooking the ocean toward Granite Pier and Rockport Harbor. In the 1950’s it was converted to a single family home with 3 bedrooms and 3 baths. The layout is certainly unique, but the huge ceilings and almost floor to ceiling cathedral style windows make this property extraordinary. The etched glass window panes are original and you can see remnants of the church throughout, from an enormous stationary wall in the kitchen which was once an arched doorway into the church to the stained glass window above the entryway.
An updated, modern kitchen gives the home a bright Swedish flare with funky lighting that coordinates beautifully with the rest of the kitchen decor. A long foyer and vestibule leads to the living room with an oversized brick fireplace that fits the room perfectly. French doors lead to the exterior deck, facing the ocean and providing stunning views.
The Master Bedroom also offers incredible ocean views, has a sitting area, multiple closets, a separate dressing area and a full bath with sleek updated fixtures. As you make your way to the front, there’s another bedroom as well as an office space that was created in the original bell tower with enormous cathedral style windows. A 2nd staircase leads down from the bell tower to the front door.
This is such a unique property! Come take a look-
