We can't blame the broker for going a bit over the top with religious references in the listing description for this three-bedroom, two and a half-bath church conversion in Doylestown. Now listed for $550,000, the residence (admittedly another example of adaptive reuse, done right), inspired a surplus of enthusiastic references to the residence's sacred beginnings. "Cross the threshold through replicated mahogany doors," the listing begins, "where natural light pours into a sun kissed sanctuary." Kinda in the mood for a communion wafer now, aren't you. Yeah, us too. The home features original features from the 19th century house of the holy, and additions such as a butler's pantry and renovated bathrooms. And just in case you were not convinced, the listing concludes with an all-caps pitch that acquiesces a potential buyer's more earthly desires:
