Iconic Church Conversion
Expressions of Interest Closing Friday 27th April at 5:00pm
A rare blend of Gothic and contemporary, this incredible 1888 construction has been totally revitalised yet maintaining the integrity of the original awe-inspiring architecture. Once a Methodist church, it now encompasses a magnificent residence with adjoining guest quarters, plus commercial space. Off street car parking has just recently been approved.
Vaulted timber ceilings soaring above Baltic pine floors contrasting with the clean lines of a new modern heart are the first signs of an exultant re-creation. Preserving the integrity of the solid church structure that envelops an equally impressive minimalist core was a virtuoso of genius. Old and new serve only to enhance the individual grandeur of each style.
Gloriously highlighted by artful architecture, a massive circular leadlight window reflects daylight in resplendent colour, an exquisite vista available to almost the entire middle and upper levels. In the vast formal lounge, original maritime leadlight windows depict charming seaport themes.
Spacious open dining and living centre around a designer kitchen with Corian benches, pull-out pantries, integrated dishwasher, extra large self-cleaning oven and sleek ceramic induction cooktop.
Three bathrooms each contain double waterfall vanities, walk-in shower stalls, heated towel rails and automated temperature control. They service three bedrooms that all have walk-in robes, with the master bedroom luxuriously occupying the entire top floor. Heating is thoughtfully ducted throughout.
Adjoining the main residence, a fourth bedroom along with open plan living room, full kitchen, bathroom and split system provides for a perfect bed and breakfast business.
The commercial space of 105 sqm incorporates a kitchenette, powder room and courtyard area opening on main street.
Outdoors comprises a large north facing courtyard and undercover area, secured from the street by electronic remote controlled fencing with off street car parking currently under construction and separate private access to guest quarters.
Situated in the heart of a picturesque historic seaside village, high on the list of renown tourist destinations, this astonishing property must be viewed in person to be fully appreciated.
