A vaulted ceiling, rose windows, marble counters, spiral stairs, and built-ins are some of the features of this unusual condo for rent in a former chapel in the Fort Greene Historic District. Located at 264 Cumberland Street, The Sanctuary went condo in 2008 with 13 units spread over four stories.
Advertised as a two-bedroom, this duplex unit has a lofted bedroom open to the downstairs as well as an enclosed bedroom on the lower level with a closet and two skylights but no windows.
The great room has a double height ceiling and windows on three sides, including a giant bank of windows on one wall, as well as four skylights. An Italianate bracket with a gothic trefoil cutout punctuates the kitchen’s marble counter, and more of the brackets are scattered throughout the unit.
The one bathroom is modern, with white fixtures and brown stone subway tile walls and a mosaic tile floor.
Other perks include wood floors, air conditioning, in-unit laundry, and a sizable terrace with stone pavers. Likely originally built as the Cumberland Street Lecture Hall in the 1860s, the building was made over in 1885 as a neo-Gothic chapel.
This apartment was last available in 2020, when it was asking $4,100 a month. Listed by Vanesa Lazo, Orrie King, and Beth Doran of Compass, now it’s priced at $6,450. Think it’ll fly?
