Location: Irvington, N.Y.
The Skinny: Converting churches to upscale residences has been a thing for a while now, and whether it's that worship spaces tend to come pre-equipped with desirably high ceilings or that a certain type of homebuyer craves a home with a divine backstory, the trend continues apace with this nifty Irvington, N.Y. redo. The 1875 former village chapel has the aforementioned vaulted ceilings plus exposed beams aplenty, a brand-new eat-in kitchen, and tons of natural light. The cavernous open-plan ground floor has mercifully been equipped with echo-slaying acoustic panels, and a two-bedroom, one-bathroom modern addition supplements the rather bare-bones loft (which the listing generously counts as a third bedroom) and main bathroom. The conversion is listed for $659K—about half the average listing price for the area—but young families looking for a unique yet affordable toehold in the Westchester County market might take note of the shortage of closet space and bedrooms and opt for something a little more kid-friendly.
