Last Minute Shopping: Church

December 20, 2007 at 4:14 pm in Holidays

Look no further people. Today I happened upon the ultimate gift for the Angeleno who has everything and wants more: the historic Second Church of Christ Scientist on Adams Boulevard just east of Hoover. No, I do not kid. The magnificent 97-year-old structure I call the Pantheon of Los Angeles is up for sale:

Jesus! What could possibly say Christmas more than a house built for The Man Himself! And look at all the extras as found listed on the Charles Dunn Company website (search under “special purpose” property types in Los Angeles): building size – 24,625 square feet; lot size – 68,999 square feet; the main auditorium seats 1,100 people while an adjacent structure has room for 700; copper-clad dome that was at its time the largest concrete-poured dome in the world; six Corinthian columns; and last but not least added in 1987 on the National Registry of Historic Places, so no tear down thank the lord. Seriously: Thank You God.

Oh, and the asking price? $8 million. Righteous.
