Fans of cool conversions flocked to a heavenly site for sale in Connecticut: a not-quite-finished project that involves a Gothic chapel ready to be reimagined as a charming three-bedroom residence. The laudable structure, built in 1905, picked up the most clicks on the collection plate this week on realtor.com®.
The former house of worship can now be customized to suit a new buyer’s needs. An art retreat? A lovable live-work space? Or a charming cottage filled with quaint vintage touches? The possibilities are wide open, which has proved intriguing to real estate dreamers around the country.
Besides the former house of the holy, you also clicked on quite a few homes associated with a raft of celebrities.
Derek Jeter‘s Tampa, FL, mansion was back in the news this week, after his famous tenant won yet another Super Bowl. A buyer with $29 million at the ready is what it will take for Tom Brady to vacate the premises.
The San Antonio estate of country music legend George Strait came back on the market this week with a serious discount, and managed to strum up quite a volume of interest. His fellow musician Jon Bon Jovi finally put a price on his New Jersey chateau, and clicks on the $20 million mansion soon followed.
However, the highest-priced celebrity property in the country belongs to Sylvester Stallone, who recently listed his 3-acre spread in Beverly Hills, CA, for a cool $110 million. Celeb watchers couldn’t help but take a peek at Stallone’s luxe spread.
