Inside This Former West Village Church Is a $12.5 Million Penthouse

Architectural DigestMay 02, 2016

What looks like a church from the outside is actually a light-filled duplex penthouse inside, complete with sweeping rooms—and former pews. The historic Romanesque-style church, built in 1860, was transformed into a boutique condo with eight units, reports StreetEasy. The apartment itself makes a dramatic impression. Think: original stained-glass windows, white Venetian plaster walls, and Brazilian walnut flooring. The showstopping feature, however, is the main level’s massive glass wall that looks out on a 500-square-foot terrace. There’s an open kitchen, a living room, and a dining room that leads to the outdoor space. A floating chrome staircase leads downstairs to the expansive media room, which is framed by those beautiful stained-glass windows. There are also three bedrooms down the hall.
