Constructed in 1957, the former Anglican Church of St Thomas at 4 Watcombe St is on the market for offers above $1.45 million.

This ‘heavenly house’ may look like a place of worship from the outside but it has all the frills of a cosy family home inside.

Unique and filled with natural light, the church comes with four spacious bedrooms, rich timber flooring, and extra-high pitched ceilings throughout. What’s more, the building is already fitted with split system air-conditioning and an electric hot water system.

The property was first sold by the Corporation of the Synod of the Diocese of Brisbane for $90,000 back in 1992.

With 918-sqm of space, the converted church isn’t short on development potential. It does not have heritage protection, which will make it easier for the new owners to subdivide or go for a complete makeover.

Stone Real Estate Aspley, the agency handling the sale of the property, revealed that several developers had expressed interest and gone into due diligence over the site. Aside from developers, the agency also has received a number of offers from Baby boomers who are looking for big flat lowsets in Wavell Heights.
