Airy co-op carved from a Carroll Gardens church seeks $975K

It has a quirky layout

Welcome back to The Six-Digit Club, in which we take a look at a newish-to-market listing priced under $1 million, because nice things sometimes come in small packages. Send nominations to the tipline.

We’ve seen plenty of apartments carved out of former churches and other houses of worship, and while the pads themselves may differ, they generally have this in common: the spaces have unique, rather lovely architectural details leftover from their holier days.

This Carroll Gardens co-op is no different; it’s within 450 Clinton Street, a 19th-century church that was converted into residences in the 1980s. And though it’s been renovated, some of those church-y details—high, vaulted ceilings; oversized, arched windows—remain.

It is a slightly odd space: The apartment is an 850-square-foot one-bedroom that’s situated over multiple levels; there’s a lower level with a sunken living room, a powder room, and an eat-in kitchen (the current owners seem to be using a pew for seating, in keeping with the theme). The upper level—accessed via a spiral staircase, which we know commenters tend to hate—has a den, a full bathroom, walk-in closet, and the bedroom.

It’s currently asking $975,000—a substantial increase from the last time it sold back in 2013, for $625,000. (Monthly maintenance is $820.) Do you think it’ll go for the new, higher price? Debate it in the comments.
