Ready to own this downtown historic gem? Originally built in 1889 to be the First German Lutheran Church, this property has an expansive history and presents an incredibly unique opportunity. Many different groups congregated in this space until the mid-1990s when it was converted into a glass art studio and gallery with a downstairs rental unit. Its most recent improvements came in 2021 when the upstairs art studio was fully renovated to be a stunning residential unit featuring a high end kitchen and bathroom remodel conducted by licensed contractors, All Wood Designs, and Silver City. The church structure has been documented by historians to be a significant example of early Helena masonry, showcased in the exquisite granite and brick exterior and stone foundation as seen in the cellar beneath the steeple. While arched gothic-influenced windows, original maple floors, carved wooden cornices, and cut granite window sills and front steps still adorn the property, the tasteful interior finishes add the perfect modern twist for this hip downtown Helena home. The original stained glass windows that are rumored to have been taken by a former priest and sold in New York were selectively replaced with a more minimal style by the glass artist that used this creative space for the last few decades. Other improvements to the property include updated electrical, a new water line and sewer line to the city main, and new sidewalks as part of the Rodney Street improvement project. The downstairs unit has its own electric metering, address, entrance off of 9th Ave, and it encompasses about 2000 of the total square feet including 3 of the 6 bedrooms. The layout could be easily converted back to a single-family residence if the next owner does not want the secondary income. Come check out this cool piece of Helena history that is sure to be the favorite gathering spot for your friends! Call Breena Buettner at 406-302-8257 or your real estate professional.
