Historic Church-Turned-Home on East Side Avenue Keeps Getting Less and Less Expensive

I see it's now listed on LoopNet at the low, low price of $1,299,000. Says Realtor John Muzyka, who's taken over the listing, truth is Fragoso never really knew how much to sell it for: "Because it's such an unusual property, she was told to list it for anywhere from $600,000 to $6 million initially." It originally went on the market at $3.1 million.
Says Muzyka, the seller's motivated, but the buyer will be hard to find: "It has to be someone who wants the urban experience and who wants to live in a converted church." Not that there aren't folks like that around: Former Waltons star Ronnie Claire Edwards lives in the former St. Joseph's Church and Academy on Swiss Avenue (and it's extraordinary). Two more photos follow.
