While the battle in Los Angeles wages on for the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in the hills of Los Feliz, this five thousand square-foot former convent down the road from the embattled St. Laurentius church in Fishtown is for sale, asking $675,000, and no drama. All told, however, the 15-bedroom single stone structure (the former Convent for Holy Name of Jesus Church) may be better suited for adaptive reuse than a single residence. The property features a few of its original 1924 stained glass windows, original woodwork, and tin metal ceilings. There's a 25 square-foot dining room and a Viking Commercial Gas Range in the kitchen. Also included is the former chapel that boasts vaulted arched ceilings with ornate wood beams and stained glass windows. The full basement consists of laundry, several storage rooms and a utility/mechanical room. There's also a sizable concrete yard out back: total meditation garden potential.
