Not for the faint of heart or the faithless. This property needs a revival. If your clients are clamoring for something different, you can make them believers. Transform the building into something new and spectacular. Heaven only knows what the possibilities could be!
The building was quickly purchased by real estate developers Highland Ferndale Partners for $1.4 million, 40% over the asking price. Owner David Papale acknowledges that while the building has the capability to be converted into 6 apartments, it's being renovating to its original single-family home state, without "that horrible addition."
During the time between the church closing and the property being bought, a neighborhood commenter tagged it with this editorial:

It seems the building still has a ways to go. A crew is currently still at work, ladders can be seen through the large windows and there are piles of rubble by the front door. But in no time at all, this grandiose building that once housed a church will be set to blend back into the neighborhood as just another beautifully renovated Victorian.
