On the Market: A Converted Church in Rockport
This former house of worship overlooks the ocean.
111 Granite Street, Rockport
Size: 3,019 square feet
There’s a lot to like about this three-bedroom home that hit the market earlier this month. First off, it’s one of a kind—the place was converted from a church into a single-family home in the 1950s, and now boasts an airy, modern interior. Second, it’s located in one of Massachusetts’ most charming seaside towns: Rockport. And to top it all off, the place boasts views of the Atlantic.
Inside, etched glass windows let light into the first floor. An eye-catching eat-in kitchen offers soaring 18-foot ceilings, while the nearby living room comes complete with a huge brick fireplace and built-in shelving. Upstairs, a bedroom and an office are located where the church’s bell tower once was, and a master bedroom boasts several closets and dreamy views of the ocean. Unlike most churches, this one has French doors that lead to a deck. It overlooks a small garden that preservers sight lines to the sea.
