Set in the quiet village of Kunghur is this beautiful timber country church, cleverly adapted to a residence. As with most original churches, it is on one of the 'best blocks in town', both elevated and private with a lovely inviting entrance to the property. The half acre of land is all landscaped with gravel pathways, rock walls and steps and the lovely mature feature trees have been under-planted with subtropical species.
The church has retained most of its original features, and has been enhanced with the oiling of timbers and the addition of a spiral staircase to access the original choir loft. The original vestment room has been kept as a storage and dressing room, and the altar area has been transformed into a kitchen. The contemporary bathroom is an addition to the original building, attached and on a lower level to the main floor of the building. The only change to the original structure is the addition of glass sliding panels leading out to the large covered terrace. This floods the church with light, and keeps it airy.
The photo gallery is essential to understanding the refurbishment of this iconic building - the current owner has kept original floor plan which is all 'open plan' with segregated areas for a kitchen, dining area, and three living spaces. The sizable loft houses the bedroom. Most of the timbers have been lacquered/oiled including the lovely hardwood floors, and pops of bright colour have been introduced on the arched windows and arched doors as well as the spiral staircase. The much loved home is decorated as an eclectic showcase to one man's life interests including homages to celebrity. It presents as a lovely and happy home. Unique and delightful, 20 minutes to iconic Nimbin and only 40 mins to the closest beach!! This one must sell - so call Grant on 0427 531 951 or Samara Burcher on 0429 806 288 today.
