“Dreams are as simple or as complicated as the dreamer” – Brian Herbert
What an honour it is to present “The Church 1910” to the market. It holds a significant place in the history of NSW being listed on the State Heritage Register.
Restoring a stone church was a dream brought to fruition by a couple who surrendered their business lives to embark on creating amazing spaces. This is one of them.
With an avid love for architecture, construction, design, a critical eye for detail and a sympathetic nature for maintaining the integrity of an era, the owners have transformed St Anne’s Catholic Church into an eclectic combination of Gothic architecture and Manhattan style living.
As you enter through the red glossy front doors, nothing prepares you for the whitewashed 20 ft soaring ceilings, black rafters and immaculate original stained-glass windows that reflect the never ending natural light.
The Church 1910 features an open plan living area with an oversized wood heater and inviting informal lounge area. The kitchen is state of the art galley style with high end finishes including SMEG appliances. The Phoenix black joinery and Caesarstone bench tops blend harmoniously with the original polished timber floors. There is also a separate waterfall stone breakfast bar which sits purposefully under one of the grand stained glass windows.
The master bedroom with its original pressed metal ceiling is hidden discreetly behind a clever privacy wall. It hosts a king bed, a decorative electric fireplace and flush mounted 75-inch television. The master en-suite (previously the vestry) is luxurious with the use of white herringbone tiles, rain shower, and freestanding bath to soak and soothe the soul. Underfloor heating and heated towel rails completes this contemporary ensuite.
The Church 1910 also hosts a dazzling foyer with a mirrored wall reflecting the ingeniously built in wine wall and staircase. This staircase transports you to “The Floating Loft”. This is bedroom 2, an enormous bedroom with a sitting area and a king bed. From here you can see the church in its entirety and can understand the magnitude of its height and pure grandeur. It is nothing short of celestial, completely and utterly awe-inspiring. “The Floating Loft” is encompassed by glass balustrading completely open (no walls or doors) and you are surrounded by glorious stained-glass windows, ornate corbels, arches, and the magnificent rafters.
A 2nd bathroom, wardrobes and a laundry are strategically integrated into concealed spaces.
The real surprise is a stand alone cast iron vintage style drinking fountain with filtered water. This is located in the same position as was the original “Holy Water Font”.
The property being sold comprises 2 separate titles. The 1st being 35 Coach Street where the Church 1910 sits on approximately 4,000 sqm. The adjacent lot being 31 Coach Street is approximately 2,000 sqm (2nd title) which allows the blessed buyer the opportunity to build another dwelling benefiting from its north facing aspect and mountain views.
Just 50 km south of Tamworth, and a glorious scenic drive from Scone (the 2nd largest horse breeding town in the world), Wallabadah is surrounded by undulating pastureland and quaint towns that will satisfy all lovers of food, wine, luxury accommodation and getaways, art, antiques, history buffs, animals, adventure and nature.
