HOUSE OF THE DAY: Now You Can Own A Beautiful Bronx Mansion That Was Originally Designed For Jesus

The Chapel Hill Mansion in Riverdale, N.Y. has hit the market for $13.588 million.

The home, built in 1928, has seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms.

The head of the New York Theological Society commissioned the house for the preparation of the “second coming of Jesus Christ,” according to The Real Deal.

The home would house “the Christian savior once he returned to earth to judge the living and the dead,” listing broker Sean McPeak of Prudential Douglas Elliman, told The Real Deal.

The 15,000-square-foot house sits on 2.3 acres of land.

Manhattan College previously owned the property, and had planned to use it as dormitories or a seminary, but is now in the hands of a private owner who is an attorney, The Real Deal reported.

  1. And here I thought the Mormon Temples all had suites arranged for the Lord Jesus to stay in when He returned!

  2. The story is total BS, invented (or at least passed on) by the realtor to generate buzz. The owner was Ludlow Griscom, a member of the Theosophical Society, not the NY Theological Society. He was a famous bird-watcher and built the house for birdwatching. Look on the mansion’s webpage (, which confusingly and mistakenly calls the society the “Theosocial” Society instead of the Theosophical Society).

  3. Jesus does not need the New York Theological Society — or any other organization or individual, for that matter — to have a house ready for Him for His second coming.

    Moreover, Jesus would not want to live in a $13.588 million mansion in Riverdale, New York, as was illustrated by the simple lifestyle He lived during His 33 years on earth.
