The church for sale shut down during the pandemic due to a merger with another local congregation and its remote location with limited capacity. Despite this, the property’s distinctive church for sale architecture has drawn attention.

According to an article published by Flipboard, although currently zoned for multifamily housing and lacking a kitchen with limited bathrooms, there’s interest in converting it into a single-family home.

Real estate agent Matt Brown of Meridian Commercial, handling the church for sale listing, revealed that the property includes a nursery, a church office, and captivating city views.

What sets this church for sale apart is the absence of an initial asking price. The sellers have decided to assess interest and offer before setting a price.

Given Belvedere’s reputation as one of the most expensive areas in the country, the final church for sale price could exceed expectations.
