The condos at 1 Summer Street in Somerville's ever-happening Union Square were carved out of an old Gothic Revival church dating from 1858. Predictably, the conversion left behind some striking features, not least of which are soaring ceilings for units such as No. 5. That 4,598-square-foot, three-level spread stretches to 60 feet at its highest point (in the living room) and includes two stories of wine storage in the dining room, accessible by rolling ladder. The 4-BR, 3.5-BA, with two-car garage, wants $2,950,000 through Thalia Tringo & Associates. That's gobsmacking enough, but then consider this: If Unit 5 in 1 Summer commands anywhere close to that, it will be the priciest home sale in Somerville history. And Somerville's seen some pricey ones lately. Stay tuned.
