We’ve covered all kinds of fun home conversions in Curbed’s House of the Day column, from shipping container houses to a funky live-work bookstore. The latest to catch our eye is this church turned luxury home in Denver, Colorado.

Built in 1906 as the First Presbyterian Church and renamed the New Hope Baptist Church in 1947, the church has been transformed into several residences. Unit D, shown here, is set over three levels and features 30-foot ceilings and the church’s original stained-glass windows in the living room.

With over 4,818-square-feet of living space, the three-bedroom, five-bath property has an open-concept floorplan. An elevator and swirling staircase takes you to the master suite, and the home also features teak wood flooring, columns, stone inlays, and arches galore. Many of the light fixtures and accent pieces are antiques found during the previous owner’s global travels—including a wooden door from a castle in India and hand-carved pillars from a mosque.

And if you head all the way up to the rooftop, a deck with built-in wooden seating provides epic views of downtown Denver. Love what you see? 2283 Ogden Street #D is on the market now for $1,995,000.
