The BH stance on conversion jobs? We love a well-executed one. Tastefully repurposing a property to highlight its existing heritage while introducing a “fresh” element is something which requires finesse. As for this charming landmark church conversion at 98 Moncur Street, Woollahra – let’s just say a good measure of finesse has been employed – and the end result firmly has our attention.
Originally built in 1877, this impressive feat of design is just a short walk away from Queen Street’s celebrated cafes, several restaurants, and for the more cultured folk, galleries. Here, residences of the luxurious five-level construction can look forward to being “bathed in northerly sunlight and wrapped in enchanting landscaped gardens”.
Inside, it’s hard to decide where to even begin. Suffice it to say, the highlights you’ll notice first will undoubtedly be the soaring cathedral ceilings, ecclesiastical windows, and heated stone floors. Proceeding through, you’ll also encounter:
- 4 x ensuite bedrooms
- 1 x state-of-the-art entertainer’s kitchen with Miele appliances
- 1 x dining space with banquette seating
- 1 x “sanctuary-like master retreat”
- 4 x lavish marble bathrooms
- 1 x mezzanine style media room
