Daily Delight: Have church, will rent

By Staff Reporter
12 June 2015 | 1 minute read

Sick of same-old, same-old listings? Why not add ‘beautiful stained-glass windows’ and ‘sky-high ceilings’ to your next property description?

Melbourne's old churches are being converted into homes and apartments, now popping up on the city's suburban rental market.

A bluestone church in South Yarra has been refurbished into six apartments (see below).

One of the apartments has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and its own atrium for $810 per week.

Another church conversion is available in Middle Park for $860 per week.

This apartment also has three bedrooms and two bathrooms and, like all your better rental properties, features large, stained-glass windows in the living area.

In Armadale, a single-dwelling church conversion is available for $1,200 per week.

This renovated property still features many of the original church appointments – and also comes with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, plus a large multipurpose loft.

In New South Wales, the Old Redbank Church in regional Picton has been converted into a studio to rent.

Maintaining some church-like features, the studio has a loft-style bedroom and is listed to rent for $320 per week.
