New, 1 comment

Is one of these buildings the answer to your prayers?

Looking for that special Detroit property for your real estate dreams? How about a church? We rounded up five churches currently for sale to peruse and consider. Loft conversion? Event space? An answer to your adaptive reuse prayers? Or even a place for your congregation? Here’s a sampling of what’s available right now.

9841 Dundee Street, $349,000

This lovely building stands on the corner of a residential neighborhood in Petosky-Otsego, near I-96, Grand River Avenue, and Livernois. In 9,600 square feet, you’ll get a large sanctuary, a commercial kitchen, offices, and an additional structure with four bedrooms, kitchen, and living space.


14450 Ashton Road, $399,900

No interior photos of this Rosedale Park church, but the listing describes it as “picturesque.” St. James Evangelical Lutheran Church spans 15,300 square feet, with a kitchen, classrooms, and event space. It’s right at the southern end of Rosedale Park, near the Southfield Freeway.


8100 Chalfonte Street, $100,000

Churches come in all shapes and sizes, including this odd little building south of the Lodge and north of Russell Woods. Can you see the light from the glass block windows? This one’s only 2,546 square feet, with some offices and a small, very burgundy sanctuary (more photos in the brochure). The building could be used for nearly anything, and parking is available across the street.


2110 Springwells Street, $100,000

This vacant church is located a few blocks off of West Vernor Highway in Springwells/Southwest Detroit. The former church needs rehab, and the listing says a land contract is available. They even say it would be a good place for a strip mall. We’re going to have respectfully disagree.

1265 Parkview Street, $850,000

Wow. This Good Shepard offering includes not only a beautiful, impressive church, but also a 3,200-square-foot rectory and a lot of land across the street. It’s located near Pewabic Pottery and the Villages.
