New use for old church

The Courier-Mail - Property - - MARKET PLACE - CAS­SAN­DRA HOUGHTON

BUILT in 1927 as a Methodist Church, this ren­o­vated house of­fers a unique de­sign and dis­tinct pe­riod fea­tures such as stained glass win­dows and a soar­ing roof line.

The floor­plan spans two lev­els and in­cor­po­rates mul­ti­ple liv­ing ar­eas and four bed­rooms, while out­door en­ter­tain­ment ar­eas in­clude a large rear deck over­look­ing an in­ground salt­wa­ter pool.

Upon en­try into the res­i­dence are open-plan liv­ing and din­ing ar­eas. With a bright, light-filled en­vi­ron­ment, the ar­eas have pol­ished tim­ber floors, neu­tral colours with emer­ald ac­cents, soar­ing ceil­ings and gal­leries of char­ac­ter win­dows.

Ad­ja­cent to the din­ing area is a kitchen with tim­ber cab­i­netry and a break­fast bar.

Also on the lower level is the main bed­room. Fea­tures in­clude a walk-in wardrobe and en­suite, as well as french doors open­ing to the rear deck.

Com­plet­ing the ground level are a pow­der room and laun­dry.

On the up­per level is an open-plan liv­ing area with ex­posed arched tim­ber beams.

Three bed­rooms on this level have built-in wardrobes and are ser­viced by a large bath­room.

The his­toric home sits on a large 708sq m block close to shop­ping and din­ing precincts and pub­lic trans­port.
