“Prime Renovation Opportunity - 1,012m2 - Iconic Church”
This iconic site offers multiple options and is currently a blank canvas for you to add your creative flair and enjoy the next chapter of its journey in history. Situated on a corner block with 1,012m2 of land and approximately 477m2 under roof line means there's plenty of space for you to design what works for you and live in it at the same time.
It has a beautiful history dating back to 1883 when the original timber Church was built and has since been repositioned at the rear of the allotment when the present Gothic style red brick Church was erected in 1914. In 1933 the Jubilee Hall was erected and since then the three premises have been amalgamated. Over the years the three structures have provided many services to the local community; being a place of worship, a Sunday school, kindergarten and since 1995 a private residence, home office and storage area.
The rear structure currently has five bedrooms, the main is ensuited and the other four bedrooms are serviced by the main bathroom. The incredibly large open plan lounge, dining and kitchen offers plenty of options for configuration. The kitchen is a modern, galley-style with a five-burner gas stove/cook top and dishwasher, plenty of bench and cupboard space. The rear vestry has been converted to an internal laundry and car parking area with carport and garage space.
The Church seating has been removed and the carpet taken up to reveal beautiful wide timber floor boards. The original lancet leadlight windows feature at the front and rear and opaque lancet windows on the sides. Timber box beams with bead mouldings form the incredibly high ceiling, plaster walls, an entry vestibule with double timber entrances, external rib buttresses and pointed arch are just some of the wonderful period features of this property. It is a beautiful space with incredible potential and an iconic streetscape.
