Colossal church conversion hits the market in Melbourne

Soaring ceilings and an abundance of skylights drench this Melbourne church conversion in natural light.

A huge open-plan living area stretches almost the entire length of the home, which is listed with JellisCraig with a guide price of $3.5m AUD. Interiors feature whitewashed walls and wooden floorboards that set off its dramatic sloping roof.

Its current owner has made the most of the generous wall space and towering 5.8m ceilings, hanging huge pieces of vintage advertising and artworks. A mezzanine level opens onto an outdoor terrace which looks out over the city as well as the neighbouring church.

The five-bedroom house is located in Melbourne’s Northcote suburb and inhabits what was formerly the Northcote Presbyterian Church Hall, which dates back to 1906. Although the property has been given a complete industrial overhaul as part of its adaptive reuse, it retains its traditional red brick exterior complete with details reminiscent of church spires.

In addition to the conversion, there’s a separate self-contained residence which could be rented out, or used as a guesthouse. For those that want to try before they buy, a night in the main residence is $350 AUD via Airbnb.
