The creation of the Parish House has been an exciting labor of love for Red Oak Development! This genius team had the vision, skill, and creative sensibilities to transform a historic building into 5 luxurious, awe-inspiring new construction townhomes, never losing sight of their deep intention to preserve and resource as much of the original details as possible.

The 2nd corner unit is the grandest in size and expansiveness. 

Every inch of this enormous and grand space has been contemplated and kissed with refinement. From the salvaged, hand-welded industrial barn doors on the upper floor to the solar-operated skylights, every feature in this unit is impressive. 

The bathrooms are equally sophisticated with designer-grade, high-end arabesque tile in the bathrooms, custom vanities, and a custom-made 2nd story chandelier that hangs in the stairwell which is made of steel and reclaimed beams. 

Rounding off this sizable unit is the master bedroom, which has a massive walk-out deck with original decorative architectural detail preserved from the old rectory.
