Remarkable church conversion in Melbourne

Residential Church Conversion-01-1 Kindesign

This stunning 1892 Anglican church conversion  was designed by owner and architect duo Dominic and Marie Bagnato of Bagnato Architects in the suburb of Moonee Ponds, in Melbourne, Australia. The Gothic-style timber church was originally built by Tadgell Brothers, it is now a residence that thrills the senses throughout spectacular spaces of unlimited luxury and unforgettable refinement. The innovative re-design marries old with new throughout unique dimensions including vast living, dining and entertaining areas arranged around a stunning Nero Tempesta marble fire-place. Flexibly formal and informal, these spaces feature limestone floors beneath dramatic, Baltic Pine ceilings and are served by a kitchen in which Calacatta marble surfaces, butler’s pantry and Ilve double ovens match form to function with conspicuous success.

Above, a mezzanine level lounge of light filled proportions precedes a roof space loft that sees the city and represents the ultimate escape, ideal as a teenagers’ retreat or work from home space. There are five bedrooms and five bathrooms, which includes a seductive main suite in an individual wing which evokes your favorite 5 star hotel and features a sublime marble and limestone bathroom while a guest room with its own en-suite enjoys its own access to elegantly landscaped outdoor dimensions.

A basement level boasts a wine room with recycled messmate ceilings and beautiful onyx marble paneling, equipped to accommodate 700 bottles. On the same level, a versatile gym or games room with its own bathroom includes a day bed retreat.
An al fresco pavilion with BBQ kitchen, LED lighting and surround sound overlooks a sunny lawn, which conceals a 6,000 liters water tank, and solar heated pool which ensures outdoor appeal matches indoor allure.
