    Default A converted church in Newport, Rhode Island


    Mike Mergen for The New York Times
    A late-19th-century church converted into two apartments in the 1960s is on the market in Newport, R.I., for $925,000.

    it's a cool idea but their decorating sucks ass and i hate the fugly tiled floors and the ugly pine doors. get rid of them and just leave the arches.

    I love it especially the green bedroom. I would feel so guilty having sex and drinking in there though

    I am sure there are the ghosts of priests from the past lurking there.

    It's beautiful, but their decor sucks. White Christmas lights hung around the bedroom? Really?

    I love the idea of it but it should look less churchy. I feel like you'd have to say the power of Christ compells you at least 100 times per day.
