Description

Turnkey church, school, and parish house with cash-flowing daycare business (24-hour childcare license) ready for a new congregation to continue serving the community. Current owner Faith Harvest Church is moving to a new location, and they wish to sell their childcare operation along with the property. The childcare business has been serving the neighborhood for decades, and has historically always had a waiting list. A recent renovation of the school wing permits a capacity of 126 children. Built in 1921, the bright and cheery school wing includes a reception area, director's office, two floors of classrooms, a gymnasium, outdoor play areas, and more. Some furniture and equipment will convey with the sale. The school wing connects to the sanctuary, fellowship hall, and commercial kitchen through a later-built addition that includes restrooms and a spacious foyer. Part of the fellowship hall is currently used in support of the daycare, as is the well-equipped commercial kitchen. Originally, according to county records, the hall had an occupancy maximum of 363, while the sanctuary had an occupancy of 370. In its current configuration, the sanctuary seats roughly 200. However, the original roll-up doors that originally permitted overflow seating in the fellowship hall still exist and could be used once again by removing the temporary walls constructed for additional classroom space. In the sanctuary is a baptistry, a media booth, and dedicated spaces for musicians and choir. Many of the original finishes still exist, along with stained glass windows, and an statement vaulted ceiling. In addition to the church and school, the property includes a large and stately four-level house, converted to an elegant office and meeting space, with a bonus guest suite on the attic level. The house has paved parking, front and rear. Each well-maintained building on the property has central heat and air. There are no known deferred maintenance issues, and the seller welcomes potential buyers to undertake a full inspection. There is no lease option.
