This historic church in St. Pete is now a fully-renovated $1.3 million home


Someone's about to find some serious sanctuary in a recently renovated historic church in St. Petersburg's Crescent Heights Neighborhood.

Located at 801 28th Ave. N, the building was formerly a Baptist church called the American Church of the Beatitudes, now it's a 3,508-square-foot with plenty of blessed features. The four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom church-house, comes with pretty much all new everything while still keeping some of the more holier and cooler features, like a pew used as the dining room table, original stained glass windows, and exposed scissor trusses. Some of the more notable new upgrades include a gas cooktop, quartz countertops, and a saltwater pool. 

The home was designed by Bluewater Builders St.Pete. According to Tampa Bay Times, the developer bought the church in 2018 for $580,000, and intended to tear it down and use the space for four new lots. However, they kept part of the church, and will now parcel off the other three lots.

Coming in at $1,295,000, the church-house went on the market on March 26, and immediately had an offer,  said the developer to the paper.
