Condo in early-1900s Narberth church wants $835K

The future of a beloved, early-1900s United Methodist Church in Narberth was the focus of much speculation when it went up for sale nearly six years ago.

But now, the fate of the stone structure has been decided. It’s been turned into condos—and one of those homes dropped on the market just this week for $835,000.

The three-bed, three-bath home is one four places built into the church as part of an adaptive reuse project that started in 2016, and it still clings to its early 20th century history with original stained glass windows and hardwood floors that sit throughout the space.

The living room holds 16-foot ceilings, a gas fireplace, and tiered light fixtures. Upstairs, there’s another living area and the bedrooms, which feature original wood ceiling beams.

The condo marks a new life for the space, which sits at 200 Price Avenue and was built around the turn of the 20th century—although an exact date wasn’t listed. For over 100 years, the church had a history as a beloved worship center and food bank.

But in 2012, it was put on the market for $1.7 million, with many members of the congregation fearing that the sale could lead to its demolition. Luckily for community members, it was picked up for condos instead, and renovations began on the space in 2016.

Now, most of the units have already sold, but this one (unit #4) is listing for the first time, according to realtors. Plus, it comes with parking.
