Unique Homes With Even Cooler Past Lives

    It may not be the first thing that pops into mind as you walk through the door of a home you’re interested in buying, but have you ever wondered what it’s past life was?  Nearly every home has a former life (unless you buy a new build, of course), and while most of those former lives are pretty traditional, there’s plenty that are are anything but.

    A recent Zillow Porchlight article highlights a few newly-minted abodes from around the country that share interesting (non-home) former lives.  Check out these sweet transformations!

     Originally built in 1909 as the Engine 44 firehouse, this 4-bedroom, 5-bath Mission Revival is heating up the San Francisco market.

    After nearly a century as the YMCA in Chelsea, Manhattan, the building was sold in 2002 and turned into a boutique condo space. Now, a $14.5-million duplex loft listed in that building “delivers the same level of freedom and relief you have when you step outside, but you’re indoors.”

     This clocktower penthouse is one of just two in the entire country. The building dates back to 1907, and when night falls, the tower’s spotlights illuminate the four giant clock faces.
