105-year-old church rectory in East Kensington becoming luxury townhomes

You can live like a priest — minus the whole being a priest part — in new luxury townhomes coming to the River Wards.

Built in the 105-year-old rectory of the former Church of Emmanuel and the Good Shepherd, the "Parish House" is being advertised as the "most-desired residential real estate" in East Kensington.

Red Oak Development says it has preserved much of the original architecture, including the exposed brick and stone walls, the stone cross on the roof and an antique safe in the basement of one of the five units.

The developers were able to transform the building, built in 1912, into five residential units while "never losing sight of their deep intention to preserve and resource as much of the original details as possible," according to the property's website.

But the units will also feature a number of modern amenities, like built-in refrigerators and solar-powered skylights.
