ONE OF A KIND!! Here is your chance to have a one-of-a-kind house with CATHEDRAL CEILINGS like no other, because it literally is a cathedral…or at least a former chapel. This beautifully restored church-turned-home was the historic Allen Chapel, formerly a prominent AME Church in Staunton for generations. The new owners have taken every care to lovingly turn this structure into a gorgeous home, complete with a large two bedroom apartment (separately metered) with a gourmet kitchen that could be used as an in-law suite, guest quarters, or for rental income. Many of the original elements of the Chapel have been preserved, including the original bell in the bell tower, and the original heart pine floors in the sanctuary have been restored to like-new. It also features a beautiful balcony that houses the master bedroom/bath, and two “Juliet Balconettes” for reading or quiet time. The possibilities for this home are endless! Call today.
