CHARMING RENOVATED CHURCH ON 3/4 ACRE (approx)

Thoona is a lovely country town central to Yarrawonga, Benalla, Wangaratta, Devenish and about 70km to Shepparton. This auction represents a wonderful opportunity to purchase the original St Andrews Anglican red brick church that is truly magnificent. Even if you don’t buy it you will love it and the vendors are to be congratulated on what they have done to the surrounds and the renovations to the church are outstanding. “It is one of the nicest properties I have ever listed,” the agent said. There is a saying “The Soona ya get to Thoona the better.” This beaut little town is located at the bottom of the Warby Ranges and the view from the balcony off the master bedroom is superb. The potential for a B&B is enormous with 17 family members recently staying there for a week for a family celebration. The moment you go through the front gate of the 3/4 acre property the “Wow” factor will kick in. That is a certainty. A magnificent lemon scented gum tree stands out at the front gate to welcome you in and all the native English trees, shrubs, roses, ornamental grape vines all add to the attraction of this transformed 110 year-old church.
Patterned brick pavement meanders all around and through the established garden with its ponds and heaps of little nooks and crannies. The meals area is a lovely modern room with original polished Baltic pine floorboards, rendered walls, high cedar cathedral beams and of course all timber windows plus beautiful circular window. There is a timber pantry with electric oven and hotplates, dishwasher, original wood stove and an electric hot water service. The porcelain sink and central island servery and SS RC/AC make up the room. You walk through a lovely church door into the formal lounge and dining room with gas log fireplace, SS RC/AC plus a combustion wood heater. The original set of 3 leadlight windows let all the sun in and show the vibrant colours. Once again the polished floorboards lead up the hallway to 4 sleeping areas each with their own leadlight windows bathroom through original double church doors comprising toilet, shower and ornate hand basin. The laundry is also close by. The staircase leads upstairs to a stunning mezanene floor of the master bedroom with two sets of mirrored built-in robes, stunning pure white tiled ensuite complete with a clawfoot bath, toilet, hand basin and shower. Double French doors open out to the balcony complete with modern retractable flywire screen that looks out to the east with views of the “Warby” Ranges and over the beautiful garden with its fish ponds and timber archway coming in from the front gate.
There is a massive amount of extra features other than the beautiful church itself. The “Naples” courtyard with its circular brick paving around the in-ground salt swimming pool complete with ornamental grape vine on the pergola which houses the handmade rock pizza oven. Another enclosed area is called “Tuscany” complete with pond and olive trees and this leads to a wonderful accommodation area known as “Swallow’s Croft with handmade brick floor and an upstairs room that sleeps six. Outside this is a lovely area to soak up the sun. There is still so much more to this property and an inspection is needed to fully comprehend its beauty. The original garage is quite large with wonderful old timber double doors. The original brick and rendered chook pen sits beside a handmade rock fish ponds. There are 18 solar panels to help with electricity bills and the property is serviced with 20,000 rainwater and the local Thoona Stock and domestic 1 meg for the garden which is automatically watered in summer keeping the gardens and lawn area always green and inviting. In summary, properties of this nature and calibre are scarce and anyone that takes the opportunity to inspect it will be delighted with what they see.
