A townhouse nestled inside this former Toronto church is on the market for $5.5 million

There’s nothing cookie cutter about the townhouse at 5-12 MacPherson Ave. The building it resides in used to be a century-old Methodist church until it was expertly converted into five luxury town homes. The lancet windows, hood moulds and gothic looking bell tower make this one of the most historic and unique residential properties in the city.

Townhouse five spans a whopping 4,300 square feet across three levels. The interior contrasts its gothic exterior with an sophisticated and modern design work completed in 2017. It offers four bedrooms, four bathrooms and nice-to-have amenities like a bar and sauna. The listing is located in the desirable Summerhill neighbourhood and on the market for $5.5 million.
