Although the exterior of this dwelling is about the only thing that points to its former purpose as a House of Worship, the interior of this fantastic home, is anything but austere. This former church on Toxteth Road is located in the Sydney, Australia suburb of Glebe, and was originally built around 1898. After purchasing the property in 2003, the building was suffering from lack of maintenance and falling into a state of disrepair, so the owners sought the design brilliance of architectural firm, Otto Cserhalmi and Partners to resurrect the property to its potential glory. Apart from the exterior elevation, there is not much to indicate its former purpose and the resultant transformation of turning the structure into a four bedroom, four bathroom house is simply stunning. Currently offered for sale through McGrath for 3.4 million Australian dollars, the 432 square meter masterpiece is truly heavenly.
