Stunningly Converted Stone Church + Studio
If you've been looking for a home that is big in personality and could tell a few stories, then this beautifully renovated, heritage listed residence will fill your heart with joy.
Only 5 min from two shopping centres with supermarkets, a post office, chemist, a gym and more, this unique and very well-maintained property is set on over 4000m2 of land - a mix of the original cemetery and newly landscaped native gardens - and first opened its doors as a chapel in 1853. The building was extended during the 1980's and in 2011 was converted into the stunning two-bedroom home you see today, together with a fully self-contained one bedroom studio out the back.
As you enter the main residence through the original solid timber doors, you are welcomed into the rustic country style kitchen - featuring solid timber bench tops, a gas 4 burner cooktop and polished concrete floors, which open through French doors onto a lovely undercover outdoor area perfect for entertaining.
Off the kitchen you'll find a spacious bathroom, a bedroom with built-in robes, and a small but functional laundry.
Continuing through the timber floored hallway - currently being used as a home office - you come to the lovely spacious light-filled lounge room, offering many original features, including the deep windowsills and cathedral ceilings which add a luxury and grandeur to this room not found in modern builds. A quarter-turn timber staircase leads to the mezzanine level, which is currently being used as the main bedroom.
One touch thermostat controlled hydronic heating keeps this home warm and cosy throughout the cold Tassie winter - with the thermodynamic properties of the sandstone doubling to help keep the heat out on even the hottest summer day.
At the rear of the property, a separate studio stands as a self-contained haven. It's a modernised space with a comfortable living area, a well-appointed kitchen, stylish bathroom, a spacious bedroom and a gravel fire-pit area out the back. Consider the possibilities: a private retreat, a guest house, or even an Airbnb opportunity (subject to council approval).
Embracing the church and the studio, newly landscaped native gardens create a serene haven where you can relax and enjoy the tranquility of living on a spacious block - whilst only being 25min from Hobart CBD, 15min from vibrant Moonah and Glenorchy, with a variety of pubs, cafes, specialty stores and more and just 5min from dog-friendly riverside walks and a future planned mixed-use waterfront precinct.
This is more than just a house; it's an invitation to live a lifestyle enriched by history, serenity, and purpose. Whether you seek a haven of tranquillity, a unique home, or a distinctive business venture, this property offers it all. Embrace the divine blend of old and new and become the guardian of this unique piece of history.
