Church Converted Into Single-Family Home, For Sale In Chicago's West Town

Hoping to bring a little spirituality into your new home? Sure, you could get a "Bless This House" doormat. Or you could move in at 2558 W. Cortez.

The gorgeous West Town building was constructed as a Lutheran church in the late 19th century; it's now been converted into a 4,000 square foot single-family residence.

It still appears from the outside like a church. But entering the beautiful building reveals the soaring lines, double-oak staircases, and forty-foot ceilings of a gorgeously renovated home. The first floor houses the three bedrooms and the bamboo-appointed full bathroom. Upstairs, the building maintains much of its church-like aspect, including the pulpit that extends over the open space in the center of the floor plan.

Words can't really do the place justice: take a look at some photos, and tell us what you think.

List price is $749,900. All photos courtesy of agent Thyra DeCicco. View the complete listing here.
