“Let the hills rejoice” A gem in a heavenly setting
Offering a stunning setting, cherished traditions and the simple pleasures of country life – this unique real estate offering comes to the local market as an absolute rarity.
The former Church building was architecturally designed and presents in excellent condition, providing versatility, volumes of space and so many options for its future use - perhaps most perfect though, as a spacious and original family home. Combining the warmth of timber with soaring ceilings and exposed beams, curved walls, extensive plaster bulkheads, deep floor to ceiling windows and also high skylight windows – the interior is just magnificent. The floor plan offers approximately 28 squares of space, currently consisting of a very generous foyer, main Church area, study/ office, plenty of storage and a second partitioned room. An existing timber kitchen with servery and amenities (including a disabled toilet), along with quality carpet and floor heating are other features.
It provides a very adaptable space and offers immense character, charm and a genuine opportunity for the imaginative purchaser to produce a stunning home – only limited by imagination! Nestled on a 2202m2 (just over half an acre) block, with an asphalt driveway, concrete pathways, paved entrance, pergolas and immaculate gardens and lawns featuring some mature trees; this attractive building is constructed of Daniel Robertson brick and highlighted by a dramatic angled roofline.
