Just Like a Dream, These Condos Are Not What They Seem

A pair of condos inside of a converted 19th century gothic church in Manayunk caught our eye this afternoon. Behold your cathedral ceilings. Because you’re living in a cathedral.

Unit A is the larger of the two, boasting two loft-style bedrooms among the eaves of the church. As the listing notes, the third-story walk-up is worth it if only for the stained glass windows lining the staircase. The modern kitchen is nestled under a loft space and we love the aubergine color on the walls.

Unit E offers living space within the church’s old organ room and also features its own series of stained glass windows. The built-in tables made from pillar tops in the single bedroom are almost as cool as the enormous, walk-in closet.

Both units include indoor parking as well as updated appliances and easy access to Main Street Manayunk. Praying to the porcelain god after a long night at Mad River has never been easier.
