A rare opportunity for a congregation to establish both a place of worship and a revenue stream via a childcare center.

The seller, who wishes to downsize in response to the changes brought about by Covid, currently operates the building as both a church and daycare.  The daycare operates permanently in the fellowship hall, and expands into the sanctuary Monday through Friday.  A buyer could adopt the same configuration.  Alternatively, a buyer could forego the childcare, restore the hall to its original purpose, and use the directors' offices as meeting, classroom, or ministry space.

The original sanctuary was built in the 1930s, and, over the years, the property has been improved with numerous enlargements and renovations, including the incorporation of an adjoining home and the expansion of the basement level.  In addition to a sanctuary, the building includes a hall, offices, pastor's office with full bathroom and conference space, a warming kitchen, storage, restrooms, and an outdoor playground.  There is no dedicated parking lot.

The Marshall Heights neighborhood, made famous for its 1991 visit by Queen Elizabeth II, has recently been described by the Washington Post as "poised for growth and change."  The church is located in the heart of Marshall Heights, at the corner of 51st and E Street SE.  The property is zoned R-3 (row dwellings, detached dwellings, semi-detached dwellings, and groups of three or more row dwellings); churches and daycare centers are permitted by right.

Because of the childcare operation, property tours are limited to evenings and Saturdays.  Interested parties should be prepared to provide proof of financial wherewithal when requesting a tour.
