Description

These newly-constructed sleek, urban townhomes are the culmination of a remarkable renovation of this ideally located Kenwood treasure. A long-awaited and exciting project, where developers reimagined the iconic columns of a former church as dramatic entry and beckoning front porch. This luxurious three-story, 3 bedroom, 2.2 bath residence is housed within the facade of a former church conceived by renowned architect Solon Spencer Beman in 1904. For nearly a century its purpose was a site of worship, but then the property lay abandoned and neglected. Local developer John Liu purchased the property in 2014 and began a remarkable odyssey of salvaging the landmark for future generations. The one of kind 3-story luxury residences offer memorable character and stunning architectural details with numerous elements repurposed from the historic space in clever and whimsical ways. This beautifully designed 3 bedroom 2.5 bath unit features an open floorplan with refined interior finishes. Amenities include balconies and access to the dramatic terrace. One garage and one exterior space included.
