A piece of Brookline history is on the market.
That piece is a one-bedroom, 1½-bath condominium inside the former St. Mark’s Methodist Church at 90 Park St. The work of architect George A. Clough — who designed several iconic Boston-area buildings, including Suffolk County Courthouse and The English High School — the Romanesque Revival building was dedicated in the late 1800s and for many years served as a touchstone for the Methodist community in Brookline. The church, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was converted into housing in the 1980s. Now the property’s vast history shines in Unit 31, a 1,220-square-foot condo listed at $949,000.
“How often does one get the opportunity to live and enjoy the interior of any structure like this?” said Barbara Favermann of Coldwell Banker Realty, who has the listing. “It has all the original detail, and every unit in there is different and unique.”
Step inside the building’s entryway, home to awe-inspiring original woodwork. Unit 31, located on the third floor, welcomes guests through the original door into the foyer and continues on into an eat-in kitchen equipped with stainless-steel appliances and a stunning wall of original woodwork. The expansive circular living room is a one-of-a-kind space helmed by eight arched windows overlooking a peaceful stretch of Park Street. Continue up the spiral staircase to a bright bedroom adorned with intricate crown molding. The second level is also home to the primary bathroom.
The unit comes with one assigned parking space and extra storage.
Favermann said the property is suited for someone who can easily navigate the spiral staircase, but also a buyer who “appreciates the space and the rarity and uniqueness and the presence of it.”
