House of the Day: Find Sanctuary in a Former Synagogue


If you weren't prepared to shell out $15 million for a home built for Jesus Christ, you can still live in a "divine" home in New York City for significantly less. For $25,000 a month, you can find a haven in a former synagogue in Manhattan's East Village.

The re-purposed structure isn't exactly shy about its spiritual past: It boasts a huge custom-made stained-glass window, with a Star of David. But that aside, the rest of the four-story space is pretty standard (well, for a moneyed New Yorker).

The property features three sprawling bedrooms, three terraces (one with security cameras!), a private roof deck, a hot tub and a humidity-controlled wine cooler. A floor-to-ceiling glass-enclosed hallway will lead you to one of the home's 2½ luxury baths, where you'll find a sumptuous rain shower.

Also, it's gorgeous: Brazilian hardwood cherry floors, hand-poured Brazilian glass mosaic tiles, Wenge wood paneling, floor-to-ceiling steel-cased windows and doors ... you know, the usual.

Vladimir Luzader and Danny Davis of Town Residential have the listing.
