Stunning Church Conversion
Beautiful converted Bluestone granite church (circa 1850) superbly transformed into this exceptional multi-level residence.
This stunning home occupies the entire front section of this unique St Kilda landmark, ideally located directly opposite Albert Park Lake. The ground floor comprises grand entry leading into two huge bedrooms, central bathroom and separate toilet. Spacious open plan kitchen, living and dining areas with meals area stretch seamlessly over the first floor while the master bedroom with WIR, ensuite, magnificent walk in Roman bath and loft comprise the whole of the top level.
Other features include vaulted original timber ceilings, ornate cedar support beams, divine leadlight glasswork dating back to the 1800's, timber floors, custom cabinetry, ample storage and two secure off street car spaces.
This church is one of the few turreted churches remaining in Victoria. The turret itself has a roof top terrace with views across Albert Park to the City and across the bay.
Almost the entire interior was hand crafted including broad flooring beams and copper stair inlays. The entire front facade has just been subject to major renovation, with much of the sandstone being replaced under the supervision of Heritage Victoria.
Over the years it has featured in architectural and lifestyle magazines and in television programs as a unique extraordinary home.
