I’ve gotten lots of great feedback about the Abbey on Park condo I featured in February, so I thought I’d share another church property that just keeps intriguing me. This place has been for sale, on and off, since 2006, and that’s probably because buyers and agents are looking at it the wrong way! They’re thinking “church” when all I can see in this sweet little mid-century building is a fabulous HOUSE!
Built in 1958, this 1,900-square-foot gem sits on one acre in the heart of a nice Ballwin neighborhood, right next to the landmark Barn at Lucerne. Nearly everything around it is already residential, so I doubt you’d have trouble convincing the county to rezone this tax-exempt property into a taxable one. Then all you’d have to do is customize the interior.
With those beautiful wood ceilings and the wide open space, it’s not hard to envision a loft-like setup. And that’s not even counting all the possibilities in the finished walk-out basement! Or everything you could do in that huge yard!
At one time, this property was listed for $790,000. Today it can be yours for a fraction of that, maybe even less than the asking price. All you need is a little creative vision…

If you’d like a buyer’s agent to show you this one-of-a-kind property (and brainstorm remodeling ideas too), I’d be happy to help!
