Wanna buy a church? How would you like a nice big living room with stained glass windows? Perhaps you could turn the church into a restaurant or community theater? Or maybe you're a pastor with a growing congregation and need more space.

No matter what you might want to do with the space, you will have your chance to win the former Oakfield Presbyterian Church, 80 and 82 North Main St., Oakfield, at auction at 5:30 p.m., March 18.

The church and adjoining house -- the manse -- will be sold together with a starting bid of $20,000. The high bidder has the option to buy all the contents of the buildings for an additional $5,000.

The assessed value is $398,000, and current annual taxes are about $16,607. 

The church was built in 1890. It's 11,740 square feet. Besides the manse, there's also a one-car detached garage.

Potential bidders can check out the buildings at open houses 10 a.m. to noon on March 13 and March 17. The winning bidder will be required to make an immediate $10,000 deposit.

The auction is being conducted by Harris Wilcox, a Bergen-based company.

Have you seen the damage to this building because the pipes were allowed to freeze? It isn't pictured of course.

Brittany's good, for sure. I didn't have time Thursday to the auction. Of course, somebody from the church is welcome to submit a story.
