If you haven’t been feeling too #blessed lately, this condo inside of an old church may be the answer to your prayers. The Sanctuary, a century-old church in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood, was converted into a condo building and hit the market in 2012. Now, the incredibly hip 12th unit at the former First Church of Christ, Scientist is on sale.

Unit 12 is an enormous 2,952 square feet, with three bedrooms and 3.25 bathrooms spread over four stories; it also has two outdoor spaces. The condo is listed for a cool $1.25 million, and the HOA dues are $1,115 per month with a six-year historic property tax credit to sweeten the deal.

Built between 1906 and 1911, The Sanctuary has two-foot-thick masonry walls that are clad with Bedford limestone and concord granite, the same materials used on such national treasures as the Empire State Building, the Pentagon and Washington National Cathedral. Are you also a national treasure? If so, living in this home could be a match made in heaven (sorry).

According to a press release, other notable building features include stained-glass windows (many of which slide to the side, revealing vision glass and opening windows), Corinthian columns at the perimeter walls and a central oculus that casts light into a central sanctuary — a great place to read a book or passive aggressively ask your neighbor to keep the volume down on “Dancing with the Stars.”

If basking in the glory of these holy photos has enlightened you, go see The Sanctuary for yourself at the open house this weekend from August 11th to August 14th.
