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.

An airy condo inside a former Clinton Hill seminary—which has kept some of its imposing Gothic details, including gargoyles—is asking $750,000.

The 769-square-foot condo has one bedroom, one bathroom, a living room, and an attic loft, along with 16-foot ceilings and large windows allow plenty of light in. An elegant staircase with white railings leads to the attic loft level, which can be used as a bedroom, office, or both. Some interior details include new hardwood floors and a renovated kitchen and bathroom.

It’s located in the Cathedral Condominiums on Washington Avenue, a three-story Gothic-style structure built in 1914 as the Cathedral College of the Immaculate Conception, a seminary, the listing says. In 1988, it was converted into a 53-unit residential building. According to Brownstoner, the condo conversion was led by developer Norman Kirscher, who paid $2.7 million for the building and invested at least $3 million in renovating it. The architect for the project was John Gillis.

Today, the condo building allows pets and has an elevator, a common laundry room, and a common garden. The nearest train is the C at Clinton-Washington Avenue and it’s a 15-minute walk to Prospect Park. Taxes are $547/month and common charges $502/month. Ethan Leifer of Compass has the listing.
