A divine den in a quiet hamlet of the Macedon Ranges

Property reviewed by Stephanie Mikkelsen

This masterfully finished church conversion can be summed up in one word: charming. In fact, your first time steering down the tree-lined driveway may even have you thinking that you’ve mistakenly ended up on a movie set or a photo shoot for a home design magazine. A crisp white exterior, pitched roof and park-style gardens create a storybook-like first impression, and inside guests will find an escape that is all high ceilings, light-filled spaces and modern-print textiles.

Remnants of the build’s former life have been respectfully preserved. The walls in the main living spaces are bordered by rich timber panelling; classically curved church and stained glass windows are sprinkled throughout; and the old confessional now acts as the walk-in pantry – for when sins of the gourmand kind are about to be committed. One window, located in the second lounge room, has been cleverly turned into a sun-blessed window seat and it is there that readers will love curling up with their current novel.

The Church has three bedrooms: two on the first floor and one located on the lofty mezzanine. For families, there is even a one-room bungalow in the garden that can double as a kids’ hang-out space or play room. There is a spa bath in the shared bathroom, and the aforementioned second lounge can be sequestered off from the main living and dining area to create a cosy, quiet room for downtime or movie nights.

Tempting though it may be, try not to spend too much time indoors while you’re here because the grounds are delightful. The established gardens have spots for picnics, room for lawn games and afternoon snoozes beneath the boughs of decades-old trees.
