At 34,00 square feet, The Door Christian Fellowship Land Park church on Freeport Boulevard is selling for $774,000. In the property features, it claims to have three bedrooms with the possibility of up to six.

After 20 private tours in two days and at least 50 calls from potential buyers, real estate agent Joanna Greene hosted an open house on Saturday.

The current property owner was planning to do it herself, however she was caught up in another project. If the church doesn’t sell, the owner will eventually turn it into a home for renting or selling purposes.

However, for anyone interested in making this their home, Greenehouse Real Estate already has a few plans available. Those renovations would mean hundreds of thousands of dollars in addition to the cost of the property.

While the project will require money and patience, Greene says that projects like these are already in bigger cities and could become more common in the Sacramento region, adding that it’s a solution to help solve California’s housing shortage.
