    This could make a quite impressive home! I wonder what is above the ceiling in the sanctuary looks like it seems to be covered with ceiling tiles. From the sky view you can see little dormers attic? Living space?

    • My guess would be attic vents – there might have been a passive ventilation system. I grew up across from a former Christian Science church and they had a fairly advanced ventilation system – even though this looks like it has single-pipe steam there could have been indirect heating in the sanctuary with vents out the ceiling (used w/o heat in summer) that were covered over at some point – I also see what looks like an attic fan.

  2. I was going to comment that this has the feel of a Christian Science facility and sure enough, that’s what it was. It’s the spare decor, yet somewhat tasteful and lack of iconography (I couldn’t read the writing on the wall, but it did look look the quote was by Mary Baker Eddy). They are often very well built buildings, but often getting a bit threadbare.

    I live not that far from here and am seriously tempted to contact the broker to set up a meeting.

    I wonder why they have the windows covered from the outside. It seems it would make the facade brighter if they were open.

      It looks like the same sort of polycarbonate protective sheeting our local Methodist church installed over their stained glass to both protect and weatherproof it. It turns cloudy yellow with age from outside but doesn’t hamper light entering.

    Obviously I`m missing something — where exactly is the balcony that`s referenced in the realtor`s description?

    Insofar as the church, itself, goes, I quite like it. I’d prefer to see it continue as a church, but I suspect that’s unlikely.

    Oops! I thought it was a mausoleum or some kind of family crypt.

      I did too! At first glance I was super confused at what I was seeing and thought someone was selling the family mausoleum. Came to the comments to see if anyone else had the same problem 😂

  7. The choir loft confirms the high ceilings in the former sanctuary and the potential for a remarkable conversion. A wonderful building in a charming town with a world class art museum (The Hyde Collection).

    I think I’ve figured it out. When the realtor throws a “balcony” into the mix, she is referring to an inside loft used by the choir. And here I was scouring the exterior of the building for the non-existent balcony (as in deck, patio, etc.) Oh, dear, heehee!!
