Christmas is just around the corner which means, for many, church is likely on the mind.
But for those looking to extend their visit beyond the festive season, we’ve rounded up six listings with a dash of the holy spirit that are available to buy right now – ranging from grand architectural masterpieces to regional church halls.
Designed by Hobart architect Francis Butler and built between 1870 and 1872, this stunning sandstone church on the corner of Brisbane and Elizabeth streets in North Hobart is being sold by the Korean Full Gospel Church.
Features include a 37-metre spire, small childcare space, office area and a performance stage with pipe organ.
It’s on the market through an expressions of interest campaign, with listing agent Chris Yan, of Brick and Castle, advising a price guide of about $1 million.
Mr Yan said the property’s P60 zoning restricted its use to church activities.
Originally constructed in 1901 and relocated to the rural town of Yungaburra in 2001, this cute-as-a-button country church has hosted weddings, art exhibitions and a number of different businesses during its time.
Potential future uses include a residential conversion or bed and breakfast, according to the listing.
The property, which has a price tag of $495,000, is for sale with Hayley Ainsworth, of Yungaburra Tinaroo Realty.
This former church in the northern NSW town of Macksville could be the perfect project for a budding renovator keen to transform the property into a showroom or shop.
Currently leased, the weatherboard structure on a 1500-square-metre block was previously home to the Macksville Catholic Church.
It’s listed with LJ Hooker Nambucca’s Jennifer Miller, with a price tag of $210,000.
Cutting a striking figure among the new developments of Melbourne’s Coburg, this charming single-level church has a price tag that undercuts the city’s median house price.
The listing describes its new foundations and cathedral ceilings as key drawcards, with suggested future uses including a home office, artist’s studio or fitness studio.
It’s close to shops, the station and a park, and is on the market for $790,000 through Raine & Horne Brunswick’s Tony Elezovic.
Currently used as a church, this property’s generous land size and mixed-use zoning means it will likely appeal to a wide array of buyers.
Located about 13 kilometres south-west of Newcastle’s CBD, the property could be kept as a church, used as a community hall or redeveloped, according to the listing.
It’s on the market with Steve Dorman, of Dowling Property Group.
Consisting of two separate buildings, a church and a kindergarten, this property in Melbourne’s north-east is being sold with plans for a new 63-place childcare development.
Subject to council approval, future uses could include a townhouse development or medical centre, according to the listing. Alternatively, a new owner could apply to use the property as a place of worship again.
The property was previously occupied by the St Andrews United Church but has subsequently been used as a childcare centre.
The property is for sale through expressions of interest. Listing agent David Napoleone, of CVA Property Consultants, is advising a price guide of $1.8 million to $1.9 million.
