In a former Fort Greene cathedral, a gorgeous $12,000/month duplex

If the window doesn’t do it for you, perhaps the arches will

The brokerbabble for this converted cathedral promises that “no expense was spared” while restoring the historic property to its former glory, and there’s no denying that the Fort Greene cathedral residence is a stunner.

Originally built in 1886, the Gothic Revival building got a makeover in 2015, when the cathedral was converted into into 12 stupidly gorgeous apartments. Renting for a monthly $12,000, this three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath residence isn’t exactly a bargain, but look at those ceilings! Look at that brick! Look at that window!

Its stunning original details include 33-foot vaulted ceilings, dramatic transverse arches, and a sea of rustic exposed brick, but it’s also got plenty of modern conveniences. Wide-plank wood floors and 130-year-old reclaimed wood stairs are nice, after all—and the holy residence features both—but so are spa-like bathrooms, top-of-the-line appliances, and central A/C.

The master suite encompasses the entire top level, while the rest of the home is situated on the well-lit lower floor. Meanwhile, the building itself has a shared gym, free laundry, bike storage, and a quaint manicured garden.
