Condos in converted churches are a dime a dozen in Boston. But lofts in converted synagogues? Less common. This one for sale near Central Square is a rare find, offering more than 1,000 bright and airy square feet.

Formerly Beth Israel Synagogue, the Romanesque building was constructed in 1904. It became East Cambridge’s first synagogue, and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in the 1980s. This one-bedroom loft for sale inside it strikes a balance between antique charm and modern comforts. The place boasts 11-foot ceilings and lots of windows, not to mention a wide-open living area and a sleeping loft. As an added bonus, there’s a covered deck off of the kitchen, where a brick backdrop makes the perfect spot to dine outside.
