This $2.85 million historic Michigan church was transformed into a party house with a rooftop hot tub

You don’t have to be religious to live in this historic Grand Haven landmark that has been transformed into a residential space — but you may feel as though your prayer has been answered by the party gods because this house is lit ... with neon and light pouring through stained glass windows.

Built in 1872, the property, located at 600 Washington Ave., originally served as a church, which burned down in 1890. The building was restored shortly after and resurrected as the Second Reformed Church, which occupied the space until 1955. After the church fell into disrepair after 2012 and in 2016, Terry and Rene French purchased the property and spent more than two years modernizing, restoring, and breathing new life into the historic space.

Boasting three beds, three-and-a-half baths, and 8,012 square feet, the home offers original elements from its previous holy lives, including stained glass windows, and materials have been repurposed including wood pews, ceilings, and doors. Now, the home has been redesigned with a focus on a different kind of congregation: party people. The open concept and quirky design details like strips of neon lights illuminating the ceiling in the kitchen and the basement wet bar, multiple fireplaces, and a statement staircase with a pulpit-style balcony makes the space ideal for entertaining.

This home is listed by The Sandi Gentry Team.
