The 1929 Narberth United Methodist Church, designed by Alexander Mackie Adams, has officially begun its conversion to residential use. Back in January, Curbed reported that the "Barrie House," the three-story stone and wood shingle home adjoined to the church (once used as the parsonage), had been converted into three condominiums by Main Line reBUILD, a regional leader in adaptive reuse projects. (You remember that huge cat in the photos. You have to).
The Narberth Place project (which comprises the Barrie House, Elm Hall (the main church building), and the adjacent newly-constructed Vauclain Manor is moving right along, and a rendering of one of the six units in "Elm Hall" was just released. The six condominiums, whose asking prices range from $700,000 to $1,100,000, will feature original architectural details from the church, and offer indoor parking for two cars per unit.
Per Main Line reBUILD's website, "three residences have their own city courtyards, all six have fireplaces, two have lofts, two have private studies, all have stained glass without religious overtones, two have clerestories, four have two bedrooms and two baths, two have three bedrooms."
