Picture perfect and pairing character with contemporary finesse, this unique old church with a new extension is visually timeless and adjoins farmland in idyllic Outram.
In 1893 the Church of England commissioned Mason and Wales to design St Thomas'. In recent years, The Design Studio has helped create the extension which is like a new home.
The main entrance is into the original vestry which is now an office. The exceptional craftmanship of this room and the main church, which is being used as a dining/living room, is to be cherished. It needs to be seen to be fully appreciated, as well as soaking up the atmosphere.
The switch from restored kauri to tasteful modernisation is exhibited in the kitchen/living area. This plays a central role within the floor plan and provides a relaxed backdrop to daily routines. Bi-fold doors open outdoors to a courtyard.
The family bathroom is stunning with its claw foot bath, wet floor shower, vanity, toilet, and brass fittings.
A double bedroom is downstairs with excellent storage and opens out to the private rear section.
Upstairs, skylights let in lots of natural light and even frame the view of the Maungatua range.
The feature of the master suite is the arch top of the stained glass windows while the superbly finished ensuite enjoys warmth underfoot delivered by under-tile heating.
Bedroom three is also upstairs and benefits from a serene outlook.
The presence of a wood burner, two heat pumps, double glazing and extensive insulation ensures you'll be kept warm throughout the cooler months. The digital electrics are state of the art.
This established section is sheltered, and the utility sheds provide valuable storage.
Located within easy reach of Mosgiel, and a comfortable 25-minute commute from Dunedin will please those who frequent the inner-city.
Buyers looking to embrace soul-soothing character with a modern twist will undoubtedly be drawn to this endearing offering, there is only one opportunity like this!
