My listing featured in the Seattle P.I.!

Beautiful cathedral-turned-home overlooks Green Lake

The home is listed for $2.8 million

Many homes in Seattle have unique stories and long histories, but this home in Green Lake is especially interesting.

This converted church, built in 1914, served as a place of worship for a number of denominations over the years, said listing agent Beth Bylund. It was most recently home to a Pillar of Fire church, which is part of a Methodist sect.

The home was converted into a private residence in 1996 by the seller, who spared no expense in upgrading it while preserving elements of its spiritual past. You can still find an old bell in the bell tower, and the top floor has been turned into a chic loft with the signature soaring ceilings of a place of worship.

 The home has five bedrooms and 3½ bathrooms spread over two floors and a basement. The lower level of the residence has four bedrooms and a separate kitchen, while the master suite on the top level provides sweeping views of the area.

The entire property sits on almost one-third of an acre, which is a rare find in tightly packed Green Lake.

This righteous property doesn’t come cheap, though: It’s listed for $2.8 million and had been on the market for less than 24 hours as of Wednesday afternoon. Multi-million-dollar properties are quickly becoming the norm in Seattle, and a whopping 40 percent of active Seattle listings are listed for $1 million or more, according to data pulled from Redfin on Wednesday.

Bylund is co-listing the home with Wendy Saddler. You can see the full listing here.
