HARCOURTS Ballarat have recently listed the rarest of Buninyong properties that boasts 150 years of history in this wellknown and popular town.
What was once a Methodist Church, this exceptional building that has stood the test of time and stands as solid as the day it was built, comes to market as a superbly renovated home that retains its core historic features that now combine with the comfort of today’s expectations.
Harcourts sales consultant Jan Millar said that it was such a privilege to present this showpiece to the market.
“Every time I walk through the front doors of the church I think of all the brides who have walked this way and the
flood of emotions they must have been feeling,” Ms Millar said.
“Now, the inside space has been extensively remodelled to provide a happy, bright home for the next custodian, yet still retains a sense of history with magnificent Oregon trusses that you just have to touch, glorious timber lined ceiling and wonderful gothic windows.
“Outside, this triple brick, double storey building is in beautiful condition and is filled with history unlike any other home on the market.
“The property is a credit to the vendor and his passion for historic architecture.”
Vendor Alec Robinson, a music lover, says that the acoustics are perfect for the pure enjoyment of all genre of music but especially classical.
“This 150-year-old church displays its magnificent trusses on the second storey and provides a beautiful space to relax and live in,” Mr Robinson said.
The team at Harcourts Ballarat are honoured to have been entrusted to present this historical Methodist Church to market to find the next custodian to take it to its next chapter.
Superbly renovated internally approximately 17 years ago, the exterior has since been lovingly restored and maintained, including new Welsh slate roof, thoughtfully insulated, and all mouldings restored and painted.
This triple brick, double storey with third storey loft, magnificently proportioned home offers spaces for a variety of home seekers.
Abundant light fills the rooms through amazing and intact gothic windows and soaring timber lined ceilings, showcasing the glorious, centuries old Oregon trusses.
There are two living areas to enjoy.
The massive downstairs living area incorporates stainless steel kitchen with pressed metal splashbacks, stunning sitting and dining areas all surrounded by those fabulously tall gothic windows.
The upstairs living area is equally impressive in size and lends itself to surround sound theatre.
Also downstairs are two huge bedrooms and a bathroom, all these light, bright rooms are heated individually by their own Rinnai gas heaters and ceiling fans.
Upstairs adds another three bedrooms, master with full ensuite, and a second living area of substantial size.
Take the next flight to the third storey and you will be excited by the studio in the loft. The full floor second storey shows off with a 9ft gothic framed, cedar and leadlight door in the master bedroom taking you outside to the balcony and the pure enjoyment of sunsets, moonlit nights, tree tops and privacy.
