From the architect. This 5500 square foot project was a conversion from a church to a single-family home for a busy family with three young children.
The church, boasts 7 bedrooms and 6 baths. The great room has ceiling heights soaring at 25’ while more intimate spaces like a playroom has a ceiling height perfectly portioned for a peanut at 7’.
Finishes were selected to create a hip and eclectic vibe pairing interesting wallpapers and light fixtures.
Linc custom designed and fabricated many of the home’s details like the climbing wall, dining room table, Murphy bed in the nursery and much of the furniture.
The home showcases historic details of the church with original stained glass windows, bell tower, exposed brickwork and ceiling turnbuckles while integrating all of the conveniences of modern living.
