Many people feel at home at their church, but not many get to call a church their home.

Potential buyers of this condo just minutes from downtown Athens and Sanford Stadium at UGA, though, will be able to do precisely that.

Built in 1955, the church was converted to condos in 2002, and this unit was redecorated in 2015.

Currently, the two-story flat features 30-foot-high ceilings in the great room, an updated kitchen, and three upstairs bedrooms, two with their own Juliet balconies that overlook the great room.

With 3,036 square feet, there is ample space for entertaining, although with three bedrooms, not much room for loads of overnight guests.

Unless, of course, you believe the listing’s claim that “it is possible to carve out a sleeping space if needed” on the main floor.

Storage, on the bright side, is not in short supply, thanks to a double pantry off the kitchen, storage under the stairway and yet more storage available in the communal basement.

The current asking price of $419,000 breaks down to $138 per square foot, which isn’t bad for so much space, but it could be a stretch for a condo housed in a church.

On the other hand, for the right buyer, it could be a little bit of, uh, heaven on earth.
