bell tower at stanton park - 609 maryland ave ne 20002

As one of DC’s most exquisite condo conversion projects, The Bell Tower at Stanton Park provides an exciting new option for condo buyers in historic Capitol Hill. Originally constructed in the late 1800s, crews more recently converted the more than 16,000 square foot church into a half-dozen new townhome-style condominium homes.

All of the three-story residences include well more than 2,000 square feet of living space, and typically come in a two- to four-bedroom design. Priced starting well upwards of $1 million, the multi-level condos share access to the church tower and wine cellar.

The 130-foot bell tower is perhaps the most prominent feature of the exterior of the building, but hardly the only thing that sets this property apart. It took

One of DC’s latest conversion projects results in the exclusive opportunity to purchase a large multi-level home with historic roots. The Little Red Chapel originally dates back to the turn-of-the-century when it housed the St. Michael’s congregation.

Flash-forward more than 100 years and the free-standing chapel has since been remade into a pair of semi-detached townhouses. The unique Capitol Hill property still retains some of its original appeal, including some refurbished stained-glass.

At the same time, the building has adopted some newer additions, including a second floor and a loft in the original building. There’s also now a modern two-story addition around the back of the property.

 Grace Church - 350 9th St SE

If the thought of living in a more unique setting appeals to you, consider one of the many DC properties that offer up the opportunity to live in a former house of worship. One of the first such conversions in DC is now referred to as The Grace Church Condominiums. This Capitol Hill property changed over in the late 1980s, but the trend has really started to take off in more recent years. While many major cities are left with old industrial buildings to transform into loft-style condos, DC is more unique.

The district’s overflowing with hundreds of churches. Instead of tearing down some of the old, unused church buildings in the area, developers are repurposing some of them into new residential buildings.

One of the newest is The Bell Tower at

the churchill condos dc

One of Capitol Hill’s most unique residential buildings is now selling, bringing additional options in condo living to the DC area. While the District boasts several impressive structures that date back more than a century, The Churchill is one of just a handful that used to serve a more spiritual purpose. The building began as a church, making it one of only a few churches that have been repurposed and reimagined into residences.

While filling the void of necessary residential space, buildings such as The Churchill also prevent some historical structures from being torn down, and then replaced with more modern structures. While DC is rich with those too, buildings such as The Churchill provide an alternative, saving a building’s most impressive

the sanctuary - 819 d st

Once home to countless parishioners, a number of churches on Capitol Hill are in the midst of church to condo conversions, making over the old structures into more modern, desirable locations for residential living. Among them is a former Presbyterian church being reimagined into a number of condominium units at 609 Maryland Avenue NE. This 125-year-old stone church is in the middle of an “awakening”, one of many such buildings in the DC area and all across the nation following similar trends.

The idea of changing churches over to condos seems to follow that of congregations moving out to the suburbs, moving the churches closer to those they serve while taking advantage of soaring property values that the buildings now entertain. Some see this as a
