This Historical Location, was previously known as Allen Chapel African Methodist Episcopal Church, which was Assembled in 1865. Since the Church congregation moved to another location, it has been utilized as a residence. The residence was most recently taken over and very proudly renovated by world travelers, who have quality taste and flair. This was obviously a project of love, as they spared no expense bringing their vision to life and it will make your jaw drop. For those of you who love the city life, maybe coming from NY or CA and wanting to go more quaint, but definitely looking or a certain lifestyle, this is a great fit. Taking a quick stroll downtown to one of the wine bars, for your favorite bottle; Ox-Eye Vineyard, The Green Room, Yelping Dog Wine, or to one of the breweries; Queen City Brewing, Red Beard Brewing Co. for your favorite adult beverage, go to dinner at one of the farm fresh to table restaurants at Visit Staunton, running across the street to Newtown Baking and Kitchen to pick up fresh baked bread, pastries, or a wood-fired pizza will be everything it’s cracked up to be. You will love being a 12 minute walk/5 minute drive to Blackfriar’s Playhouse to watch a show and the same to the Saturday’s Farmers Market or Byers Street Bistro. Want to take your friends to eat at the Mill Street Grill. Add another minute to your walking or driving time. Head down to Gypsy Hill Park (18 minute walk, 5 minute bike ride, 2 minute car ride). You will have it all at your finger tips and a really hip space to return to when your finished exploring!
Envision a private chef in the kitchen prepping as your friends and family arrive for your private event. Maybe it’s a wedding party, a cocktail party, a night out, this is the perfect location for amazing photos, some high top tables and a little dancing, the acoustics are sure to compliment any organ, speakers or acupella group. Open the massive arched doors to the back patio to extend the party outside.
This renovation restored the original heart pine floors in the sanctuary and the bell in the bell tower. If you ring it they will come, your guests that is. They will rave over the soaring ceilings, decorative windows, the three balconies and other details intended to inspire. Live downstairs and use upstairs for your your own art gallery, private event space, musical hobbies or photography. This home includes a large, fully equipped two-bedroom apartment (separately metered) that could be used as an in-law suite, guest quarters, or for rental income. This is true city living, so if you are looking for garage space and/or lots of parking, this is not your place. This is truly for Buyers seeking to feel connected to their city.
Much of the lower portion of the home was taken down to the studs, to prepare these “great bones” for all of the cosmetic changes it endured. All updates were done with quality, inspected and made to last. This isn’t a dream, pinch yourself, you are awake, this is your happily ever after! Can’t wait to enjoy all that Staunton has to offer?
