A few months ago, UrbanTurf reported on the conversion of a 124 year-old church on Stanton Park into high-end residential units. Now, we are able to offer a look at the finished product.
Constructed in 1891, the Romanesque Revival-style church at 609 Maryland Avenue NE (map) was designed by notable DC architect Appleton P. Clark, Jr. Morningstar Community Development converted the church into a development dubbed Bell Tower at Stanton Park, referencing the 130 foot-tall bell tower that defines the property, once known as “the lighthouse on the hill".
The six three-story units all have private elevators and nearly 16 foot-tall ceilings on the main level. Various features original to the building that can be found in the residences include stained glass windows and decorative columns and arches. The units also come with access to personal wine cellars and the bell tower as a common area.
Three of the units have private exterior entrances and because no two condos have the same floorplan, features unique to individual units include fireplaces, turrets and private bell-tower access. Emily Ehrens Hainline and Jane Ehrens of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty are listing the units this Thursday.

Correction: The article previously stated that the units went on the market last Thursday; they go on the market this Thursday.
