Listing No. 36368

1853 Church
1769 Lincoln Way W
Saint Thomas, PA

Spectacular Renovated Church

ONE NOT TO MISS!! A potentially assumable 5.25% FHA Mortgage! This beautiful circa 1853 church, situated in the quaint village of Saint Thomas, was masterfully converted into a stunning single-family home in 2021 with all new electrical, plumbing, and appliances.

Original hardwood floors, doors, and woodwork; 23’ ceilings; brilliant open floor plan – an estimated 4,572 square feet exquisitely transformed! This home provides the ultimate opportunity for entertaining, family gatherings, or even a prospective Airbnb investment!

Enter what was once the narthex, now functioning as the home’s spacious foyer, flanked by the marvelous original wood staircases on either side. The expansive primary bedroom is located on the main level and large enough to include its own private sitting area (or maybe you prefer it be your workout space!), as well as a primary ensuite bath. Three other bedrooms on the main level, along with another full bath and laundry.

Stunning new light fixtures and the reclaimed wood flooring brilliantly enhance the wide main floor hallway. Moving upstairs to a landing area, spacious enough to turn into a possible reading/relaxing niche, you’ll find the large double door opening into the home’s immense main living space with eye-catching exposed original trusses and architectural detail, plus the 170 year old original embossed tin wallcoverings on many walls and original flooring.

The gorgeous galley kitchen with a large 12’ island, dining area, great room space, custom fireplace (propane insert) and a ‘secret’ room behind the fireplace that could be used as a pantry, converted to wine storage or whatever you wish!

The possible functions of the main living space are endless! New extra-large energy efficient windows for plenty of beautiful natural lighting throughout. The second floor also has a half bath and storage room.

The seller has meticulously enhanced the home’s outdoor spaces, to include well-planned perennial gardens that are easily maintained, as well as patio space and a raised kitchen garden.

The home is conveniently located near various amenities, and not far from many recreational activities, including the Appalachian Trail, Cowans Gap State Park, Whitetail Mountain Ski Resort, Penn National Golf Course, State Game Land, and so much more!

Property is being sold fully furnished (see Items to Convey for Seller exceptions), including the church’s original 1853 lectern – a magnificent piece!

The prospects this home offers are endless! A unique one-of-a-kind must-see, you don’t want to miss this unique opportunity! Call today to schedule your showing!
