A duplex in a converted Brooklyn Heights church that’s retained many of its historic details—including stained glass windows and arched ceilings—is on the market for $1.925 million.

The home is located at 99 Clinton Street, a Gothic-style church that dates back to the 1850s; it was converted into co-op apartments in the 1970s, with just 10 units throughout the building.

This one, located on the first floor, is a beaut: You enter the apartment through a set of heavy oak doors under an arched brick entryway, with a formal foyer that leads to a living room (with a wood-burning fireplace) on the lower level. The upper level is where the two bedrooms are located, as well as a small sitting area at the top of a curved staircase.

And while there are still many vintage details (peep the colorful windows in the master bedroom), it’s also gotten modern upgrades. The kitchen has new appliances, and the bathrooms both have new fixtures and striking design elements, like Moroccan tile in the master bath.

This beautiful converted co-op at 99 Clinton Street is listed with Dennis St. Germain and Scott Allison of Douglas Elliman; maintenance is $3,048/month.
