SEATTLE – A 105-year-old church building in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood is now being sold as a home.
The Big House, built in 1907, is on the market for $789,000. The 6,300 square foot building is located at 2007 NW 61st Street.
The building boasts six bedrooms – one of which is a converted pastor’s office – and 3.25 bathrooms. A 2,000 pound sand-cast gothic window looks out onto the street. And if you like high ceilings, you’ll find plenty in this cavernous space. A 14 square foot crow’s nest deck gives you views of the Olympic mountains, Puget Sound and downtown Seattle.
There’s a separate apartment that can be accessed from the outside stairway.
Realtors Hal Rappaport and Jeff Green say the building was originally the Second Swedish Church, followed by Bethany Baptist, Bethany Assembly, Evangelical Chinese and Church of the Divine Man.
