Residential Church Conversion-01-1 Kindesign

This stunning 1892 Anglican church conversion  was designed by owner and architect duo Dominic and Marie Bagnato of  in the suburb of Moonee Ponds, in Melbourne, Australia. The Gothic-style timber church was originally built by Tadgell Brothers, it is now a residence that thrills the senses throughout spectacular spaces of unlimited luxury and unforgettable refinement. The innovative re-design marries old with new throughout unique dimensions including vast living, dining and entertaining areas arranged around a stunning Nero Tempesta marble fire-place. Flexibly formal and informal, these spaces feature limestone floors beneath dramatic, Baltic Pine ceilings and are served by a kitchen in which Calacatta marble surfaces, butler’s pantry and Ilve double ovens match form to function with conspicuous success.

Above, a mezzanine level lounge of light filled proportions precedes a roof space loft that sees the city and represents the ultimate escape, ideal as a teenagers’ retreat or work from home space. There are five bedrooms and five bathrooms, which includes a seductive main suite in an individual wing which evokes your favorite 5 star hotel and features a sublime marble and limestone bathroom while a guest room with its own en-suite enjoys its own access to elegantly landscaped outdoor dimensions.

A basement level boasts a wine room with recycled messmate ceilings and beautiful onyx marble paneling, equipped to accommodate 700 bottles. On the same level, a versatile gym or games room with its own bathroom includes a day bed retreat.
An al fresco pavilion with BBQ kitchen, LED lighting and surround sound overlooks a sunny lawn, which conceals a 6,000 liters water tank, and solar heated pool which ensures outdoor appeal matches indoor allure.
