Blessed with a great location & an outstanding conversion, the former Rowan Street Primitive Methodist Church, circa 1867, is now an elegant & welcoming family home.
Cocooned from the world by lush rambling gardens, the home was sold by the church in 1921 & subsequently converted to a Californian Bungalow-style residence with expansive extensions & further improvements added since.
Original sandstone buttresses remain but the brick facade has been transformed with roughcast finish with decorative vents to the high gable end & tapered pillars supporting the front portico. The theme continues inside where a wide entry foyer features 11ft ceilings, window niche & polished pine floors. It opens to a spacious formal lounge where a beautiful lead-light-glazed bay window overlooks the front gardens & a working open fireplace with timber over mantle is flanked by built-in shelving to displays books or collectables.
The hallway leads to three original, large bedrooms with robes, (two with fireplaces), a study/nursery with drop-down ladder to attic storage, 2 modern bathrooms, laundry boasting storage cupboards, bench space, laundry hampers & access to the tandem lock-up carport with auto door.
A charming library/dining room beside the kitchen features bevelled glass French doors to side gardens while a striking rear addition incorporates large open-style kitchen, dining & living spaces with polished hardwood flooring & mezzanine bedroom (which is the 4th bedroom) has tree-top views & roof windows adding an ethereal glow on moonlit nights.
Keen cooks will delight in the spacious kitchen equipped with gas/electric cooking, dishwasher, appliance cupboard, corner pantry & peninsula breakfast bar.
A wall of glass to the dining/living includes tall, triangular transom windows flooding the area with light filtered through the canopy of a stately Virgilia tree set in crazy-slate paving. Imagine relaxing on the paved slate patio enjoying divine cathedral views while you dine or soak in the spa on the rear deck.
Fully landscaped block (approx.1061m²) includes a feature palm tree in the front garden surrounded by slate & asphalt paths with dry-stone retaining walls encompassing lavender hedges. A kitchen herb garden & large private backyard with basketball practice court & rainwater tank servicing an auto sprinkler system complete the outside.
