For $5.9 Million You Could Live In This Dramatic Gothic-Style Church in Capitol Hill

Ever dreamed of a home with a soaring stone tower, gorgeously detailed ceilings, views of a park, and … an altar? The 1891 church overlooking Stanton Park in Capitol Hill has just gone up for sale, and for a mere $5.9 million dollars, you could make all of those dreams come true.

Zoned for residential use, the church boasts a fireplace, a soaring spiral staircase, and over 12,000 square feet of living space. Of course, one could go the traditional route and break the church up into several condos–or you could kit this place out to make one heck of an impressive home.

Either way, let us know when you’ve finished the remodel. We’ve simply got to know how you turn a choir loft into a master suite.
