Have you ever thought about living in a beautiful, restored Church in a thriving community? Well your opportunity has arrived! This property truly deserves the use of the word UNIQUE!
Constructed in 1875 as a Presbyterian Church, the later arrival of the rail line through the village required St John's to be relocated to its current site.
Today St John's is a stylishly renovated home with two large mezzanine bedrooms. The third bedroom is located in a separate chapel-style cottage at the rear of the property boasting new bathroom and its own private deck overlooking the manicured gardens. This opens up great Airbnb opportunities!
No expense has been spared since the current owners purchased it 3 years ago, focusing on the upgrading of structural facets of the building, drainage and repointing of the brick work. A full list of upgrades is available from the agent.
It is in the interior refurbishment that this former Church has undergone a complete transformation into a modern home that belies its age!
Soft-hued finishes provide a peaceful ambience. Celery pine floorboards, original leadlight and gothic style windows, vaulted five metre ceilings and timber panelling all contribute to the building's unique charm.
The kitchen and bathroom blend beautifully with the classical and modern style the whole property exudes. The kitchen boasts an electric stove, pyrolytic oven, dishwasher and great under-stair storage. The bathroom has the original fireplace.
The grounds surrounding "The Church" are well-planned with cottage-style gardens, fruit trees and a vegetable patch. Secure fencing surrounds the property.
Steeped in local history, this sale provides a unique opportunity to become a part of its future. This is truly a magnificent property!
