Mount Lawley is well known for its grand heritage buildings, and this innovative two-bedroom church conversion is a fine example, combining old with new in this welcoming townhouse in a super-convenient urban location.
Beautifully restored period features are paired with contemporary fittings to create a unique sanctuary in a location that offers the best of city living. On your doorstep are beautiful parks, shady streets, buzzing cafes and award-winning restaurants, all an easy bike ride, bus trip or even walk to Northbridge and the CBD.
Set within a beautifully restored church complex and established gardens, the property features gorgeous heritage details including a tin gable roof and original stained-glass arched windows.
The ground floor has an open-plan living room and dining area, with a smart, modern kitchen. Stone benchtops and lots of storage will allow you to cook up a feast with local produce gathered from the area's many gourmet food establishments, including Elmar's German Butcher and Fresh Provisions, and some fantastic Asian supermarkets and fishmongers in nearby Northbridge.
On the ground floor you'll also find a bedroom, with built-in robes, a private courtyard and a bathroom, plus a study that overlooks the generous walled courtyard, which is perfect for entertaining and barbecues. Upstairs is a main suite with high ceilings, built-in robes and an ensuite bathroom.
Completely renovated for easy living, the complex retains all the charm of the original church, such as beautiful windows, polished floorboards and thick stone walls, matched with contemporary fittings including quality kitchen appliances and reverse-cycle air-conditioning. Two secure car bays and a lock-up storage space offer added convenience.
