A village church on Fleischer Lane, Glenlyon, will go to auction on 25 March, and is likely to have broad appeal, says Mark Smith of hockingstuart Daylesford.
From first-home buyers to tree changers, it's not hard to see the appeal of the well-located, 143-year-old brick church.
"We've had enquiries from interstate, downsizers, first-home buyers," Smith told SCHWARTZWILLIAMS, adding, "There's been a lot of enquiry."
The church was built in 1873, and opened in February 1874. It sits on a block of 4,000 square metres, and consists of a brick building with entrance and nave, plus original presbytery which has been re-clad.
The property is being offered for sale for the first time in its history.
Glenlyon village features charming oak-lined streets, and has seen a influx of tree-changers in recent years. The village is only one hour 20 minutes drive from Melbourne yet retains a rural atmosphere, says Smith.
The building is connected to mains power, but has no kitchen or bathroom, so some work is required - but the possibilities are endless.
The property is expected to sell for between $410,000 and $450,000.
