A must see converted church in Philmonst New York. Spacious and light are two words that best define this carefully renovated church. Originally built in the late 1890’s this church has been converted into a beautiful family home. In addition, a new roof, electric and plumbing system mean that you don’t have to worry about anything. Three bedrooms, three bath, a laundry room and lovely kitchen create a living space that has all the comforts of a classic home. Large stained glass windows, arched doorways, wood floors, exposed brick hint at the church’s previous life.
Most of all, let’s not forget about the stunning main room. The incredible ceiling height and large scale of the main room offers an exhilarating environment while still feeling comfortable. Use the space to entertain family and friends or have you’re own musical concerts. Or maybe as a studio to dance, paint or simply live a beautiful lofty life. The possibilities are endless.
Outside the church there’s a patio to relax and set up your grill, plus a garden. Because of it’s central location in the heart of Philmont NY, the home is within walking distance of food, shopping and the Philmont Public Library. Philmont is also only 17 minutes from Hudson, Hillsdale and Chatham. It’s not often that you find a move in ready, fully renovated and converted church, let alone with such a great location.
