With one of the best residential views of Brisbane’s skyline in the city, this fantastically restored church is a versatile, comfortable example of luxury living with a very Queensland twist.

Originally a 1912-built church in Queensland’s fourth oldest town, Nanango, this immaculate restoration is a masterpiece of contemporary architecture that pays homage to its history and accentuates the natural qualities of the land it is sitting on to deliver a truly opulent escape from the city, without being too far away.

Sitting on the affluent East-Brisbane suburb of Coorparoo’s most desirable street, the property is close to schools, restaurants and cafes.

The verdant Whites Hill Reserve is a short walk away, where amongst the trees you can go bushwalking and admire the reserve’s wide variety of birdlife and population of Koalas that call the area home.

The five bedroom residence consists of the restored church and two adjoining buildings, surrounded by an amazing lush garden with a stony creek flowing into three separate crystalline ponds.

The heart of the home is the old church, with eight-meter high ceilings and a vast open plan living area. The home is serviced by an excellently equipped kitchen with the mater bed on a raised mezzanine above, facing the interior facade of the light-filled building, the stained glass panels dotted around the structure are a nice touch.

The entertainer’s kitchen features a butlers pantry and looks down on the temperature-controlled wine cellar with a frost-resistant door, epoxy floors and hardwood timber sourced from the original church. 

At ground level, there is a large patch of grass surrounded by a lush garden, an undercover alfresco area and a magnificent water feature cascading into a magnesium pool.

The secure three-car garage boasts a 15-kilowatt Tesla battery, charged by an 18-kilowatt solar power system while the property achieves a 7.5 Green Star rating and has 45,000-litres worth of concrete rainwater tanks.

This property is set to go to auction on Saturday 23 April at 2 pm.
