Newton Church-Turned-Condo Gives Italian Vibes and Gorgeous Views
Some people take an old church and turn it into a simple home, others take a centuries old Neo-Gothic domed house of worship and transform it into multiple luxury condos. The latter is exactly what happened to the former Newton Methodist Episcopal Church on Centre St in Newton, MA where the penthouse condo is now for sale.
From the outside this 515 Centre Street condo looks like it could be in the center of Italy, not Newton, Massachusetts. The copper-plated dome roof is actually part of the penthouse space that according to realtors Micéal & Conor Chamberlain with Historic Homes, Inc. is over 2,600 square feet.
And among all that square footage are three bedrooms, four marble bathrooms with jacuzzi tubs, granite kitchen countertops, Brazilian cherry wood floors throughout and stunning cruciform windows that bathe the whole place in natural light.
It's no wonder all this luxury comes with a $1.5 million asking price.
So yes, it would take a winning lottery ticket for me to ever seriously look at a place like this, but it is always nice to dream.
There is lots to dream about in this condo too. The rainfall showerhead in the black and white bathroom, the 6,000 square foot patio overlooking the city, a spiral staircase leading to a private mediation/yoga room and of course that super cool penthouse thing where your personal elevator lets out right into your home.
