Rarer than rare, this unique property will capture your imagination with its character and astutely appeal with its versatility for occupation or investment. A once in a lifetime chance to own a piece of history unlike any other; a church conversion that has lovingly retained its 100-year-old features with harmonious additions throughout to create a family abode that is intriguing, inspiring and irreplaceable. A blend of rustic charm, country simplicity, and modern comfort, the rich materials tell stories all their own with the practical layout and functionality supporting the busyness of everyday life.

The flexibility, size and location of the property make it a perfect family home or business venture, with a superhost reputation, current income generation and options aplenty for hands on investors (with potential earnings around $45k/pa+).

The sweet weatherboard facade, arched windows and ornate doors lead to the grand hall, now the open living room, where Red Baltic Pine graces the floors, vaulted ceilings are adorned with antique pendants and a cosy pot belly wood heater is warmly inviting. Combining style and service, the timber-topped kitchen has clever storage, quality appliances and adjoins the sunroom and northerly hops-covered deck for free-flowing indoor-outdoor enjoyment. Four sizeable bedrooms all have robe storage and the expansive upstairs master enjoys a lovely garden view from the bay window seat. A cast iron claw foot bath features in the family bathroom, with an additional shower room and second toilet downstairs accompanying the laundry.

In a bush setting on a corner 1375m2 block, the grounds gently slope from the formal front gardens with weeping cherries and camellias to the near-level backyard spotted with fruit and gum trees, a vegetable plot, chook pen, cubby, fire pit and shed. It is an ideal retreat with room to run free, to relax and to entertain in natural surrounds and privacy.

The property is ideally positioned between the Dandenong Ranges and the Yarra Valley; it is an easy walk to the Mount Evelyn township and is close to the Warburton and Aqueduct Trails. With a myriad of attractions and amenities nearby to provide convenience and choice, this is a lifestyle you will love.
