The old Ursuline Convent called St. Angela Home in the Highlands was once home to the Center for Sacred Psychology and housed Catholic nuns teaching at nearby schools. Nearby residents recall the nuns walking single-file around the neighborhood and increasing the diversity of the area. The nuns are gone, but the brick mansion they called home still sits empty. The Tyler Park structure at the corner of Edenside Avenue and Norris Avenue cannot find a buyer after a redevelopment proposal fell through last year.

The three-story house failed to sell at auction last week and is now on the market at a substantially reduced price. Originally, Juniper Beach Property bought the property last year for $500,000 with plans to turn the 8,800 square foot, 20-room building into condos. Those plans never materialized and the house went onto the market for $825,000. After the recent failed auction, the group cut the price $150,000, landing at $675,000. The house has been appraised for $750,000.
