If an offbeat condo is your idea of the ideal home, have we got a news for you: a former Manayunk church on Terrace Street was converted into condos back in 2003.

We wrote about two of these cool units back in 2013, but somewhere between then and now one of them got a $5,100 price cut. Nothing too big, but it may have helped sweeten an already enticing property because, if time has shown, church conversions are hot.

Without straying too far, Graduate Hospital’s luxe Sanctuary Lofts was once the Great Saint Matthew Baptist Church. Then, there’s Main Line reBuild, a development team that seems to have made church conversions their thing, and whose most recent project includes Gladwyne Methodist Church, which will be part of Gladwyne Commons.

But back to this Manayunk unit. It has an open loft layout and cherry hardwood floors throughout. There’s an eat-in kitchen with stainless steel appliances and several original notes that have been kept from its days as a church: Cathedral ceilings, plaster and wood moldings, wood beams, stained glass windows and transoms, and restored steel fencing.

The bedroom is on the upper left and has a balcony overlooking the first floor. There’s also a built-in and remote controlled garage on the first level.

Beds: 1
Baths: 1 full, 1 half
