What's Hot: The 2,600 Units in Progress, and 500 Units on Hold, in Rosslyn | Do Three Months of Rising Home Sales Mean The Market is Turning a Corner?
A Stanton Park Church Will Become Six High-End Condos
Two years ago, UrbanTurf featured a 124 year old church along Maryland Avenue on Capitol Hill after it went on the market for $5.9 million. Now, redevelopment plans for the historic property have emerged.
Rather than selling the property, Morningstar Community Development converted the church into six high-end residences that will be known as The Bell Tower at Stanton Park.
Sitting catty-corner from Stanton Park, the church at 609 Maryland Avenue NE (map) was designed by prominent DC architect Appleton P. Clark, Jr. and constructed in 1891 with Potomac Blue Stone and limestone trim. The most defining feature of the Romanesque Revival-style building is the 130 foot-tall bell tower, once known as “the lighthouse on the hill".

In its new iteration, the building is split into six 3-story condos ranging in size from 2,293 to 2,765 square feet. All of the units have private elevators; original stained glass windows, columns and arches; 15-plus foot-high ceilings in the main living areas; built-in sound systems; and access to personal wine cellars and the bell tower as a common area.
Each unit also has unique features inherited from the building's previous configuration. Three have private exterior entrances and two have turrets. Some have exposed brick and stone walls and one has two fireplaces; one unit also has private access to the bell tower.
Emily Ehrens Hainline and Jane Ehrens of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty are listing the units, which are scheduled to go on the market in July.
