Offering peace, privacy and tranquillity, St Augustines’ is a beautifully renovated circa 1840s sandstone church positioned on a generous parcel of 2.07acres of undulating pasture providing a verdant rural outlook. Tastefully designed, the contemporary conversion sensitively implements modern comforts that seamlessly blend with impressive original features telling the story of St Augustines’ past.
Entering the church through the vestibule, the original doors open into an expansive, light-filled open plan living area that leads right through to the gabled parapet with striking leadlight windows depicting Christ holding a lamb flanked by King David and King Solomon. Accommodating the well-equipped kitchen with bespoke Blackwood joinery and quality appliances and dining area, the parapet is bound to encourage interesting dinner party conversation! A combined laundry and powder room boasting quality European fixtures and a study complete the floorplan on this level.
The staircase to the second storey reveals the generously proportioned master suite with walk in robe and ensuite bathroom. Two further double bedrooms both have built in robes and are serviced by a modern central bathroom with spa bath. Two of the three bedrooms on this floor have internal balconies overlooking the main living area. Curved pressed tin ceilings, timber floorboards and sandstone accents enhance the character of the home. Quality fixtures and fittings have been used throughout the renovation and no expense has been spared with the installation of C-Bus control system, solar hot water and electric heating to ensure year round comfort and convenience.
The grounds of St Augustines’ have a series of established gardens and outdoor spaces including a patio with fire pit and a gazebo from which to sit and admire the picturesque surrounds. With further scope for green thumbs, there is plenty of space for gardening, hobby farming or other recreational pursuits. A unique lifestyle property, this is an outstanding opportunity to become the next custodian of St Augustines’ and acquire a superb home within 35 minutes of Hobart’s CBD.
