When the 1891 St. Anthony Church was decommissioned around ten years ago, Ashley Construction converted it into five condominiums. The entrance to Unit C is located under the bell tower. This stunning space has a reverent atmosphere, due in part to the soaring 52’ wood ceiling, supported by huge, ornate corbels, and the original stained glass windows, which depict the Good Samaritan, St. Patrick, the wedding of Mary and Joseph and St. Joseph and Child. The main level houses living, dining and kitchen spaces, as well as a bedroom and bath. The second floor loft has another bedroom and bath, along with additional space the owner uses as an office. There are a number of small gathering spots within the larger rooms, creating a surprisingly welcoming, cozy feeling in such a grand space. The owner collects art in a wide range of styles and juxtaposes it with religious artifacts (including an angel painted right on the wall), creating interesting and thought-provoking vignettes. Even though the owner works in Fairfield, he couldn’t pass up the opportunity to live in this unique space and considers Bellevue to be well worth his commute.
