Brooklyn Heights Duplex in a Converted Gothic Church With Stained Glass Asks $1.695 Million

This two-bedroom Brooklyn Heights co-op is more dramatic than average, thanks to its berth in a converted Gothic church, built circa 1850. A duplex with a private entrance, it’s at 99 Clinton Street, which was refashioned and split into 10 units in the 1970s.

The most striking elements are the stained glass windows, most notably the massive arched one that stretches from floor to ceiling in the master bedroom, formerly the church’s choir loft. There are others in the living room and in the handsome curved staircase, which has a mahogany rail and an upper balcony large enough to be pressed into service as an office space.

The layout is pretty straightforward. On the lower floor is a narrow kitchen with a wide-plank scraped oak floor and a large, open living/dining room with a slate-framed fireplace and an open wood beam (one of several in the unit, including a massive one in the master bath). There’s also a front foyer with a storage space under the stairs and a powder room with stacked laundry machines.

Upstairs are two bedrooms, each with an en-suite bath, and the aforementioned office nook. The master is a large one that spans two levels, with a wall of closets.

Listed by Scott Allison and Dennis St. Germain of Douglas Elliman, the unit is asking $1.695 million. Does it inspire any feelings of reverence, as the building did in its former life?
