The conversion of churches into residences continues in Washington with the opening of Alexander Hall in Georgetown on the site of the former Alexander Memorial Baptist Church, built in 1908, and the Hall House, built in 1810.

Hall House, named for owner Asaph Hall, an astronomer known for his discovery of the moons of Mars, was sold by Hall’s descendants to the church, which subsequently built a sanctuary adjacent to the home.

The SGA Companies recently converted the two connected properties into four residences. The main house, which has 6,000 square feet, seven bedrooms, seven full baths and a wine cellar that holds more than 2,000 bottles of wine, will be listed for sale at an undetermined price, anticipated to be more than $6 million.

The three smaller residences in the former church building, which range from 2,100 to 2,500 square feet, are priced from $1.995 million to $2.495 million.

These three residences each have three bedrooms and three bathrooms. All of the residences come with amenities at the Four Seasons Hotel in Georgetown, approximately two blocks from the units, including reserved garage parking with valet service and membership privileges at the fitness center, spa and swimming pool.

The residences have Porcelanosa floor and wall tiles, smart-home technology and upgraded appliances, cabinets and fixtures.

The church residences also have whitewashed hardwood flooring, a full copper roof and open-tread staircases. The Hall House has reclaimed walnut flooring, cedar closets, a gas fireplace, radiant heat flooring in the master bathroom and custom-milled wainscoting and details throughout the house.
