Imposing historic residential refurbishment opportunity in one of Adelaide's most sought-after locations overlooking Wellington Square parkland and gardens.
Architectural masterpieces, the former Primitive Methodist Church on Wellington Square, constructed circa 1882, and the attached Methodist Chapel, constructed circa 1858, as a package, are for the first time been offered to the market. Situated on some 830 square metres (approx.) of land, inclusive of garaging, presenting one of the most exciting refurbishment opportunities in Adelaide's history.
This building very much speaks for itself from the street, awe-inspiring, with its sandstone exterior, architraves and the attention to detail in the construction is from a bygone era and simply cannot be replicated today.
As you step inside a further appreciation is gained as to the opportunity of creating something that is truly unique. A blank canvas like no other reveals itself, from the arched entranceways, the magnificent dual timber staircases, timber floor boards and ten-metre high ceilings.
Further adding to the accommodation is the attached chapel to the eastern side, which could easily interconnect with the church. With its expansive floor plate, large windows and impressive exposed timber beams it complements the church and gives added flexibility to any floorplan.
Secure garaging is incorporated into the underground car park of the adjacent serviced apartments with access and egress via Mansfield Street. The private secure car parking is designed to accommodate two cars with private, secure, stair access from the basement level. There is provision for a lift, providing the future occupant the opportunity to install a lift -from basement to ground level outside of the church. If a lift was not required the space could make a terrific temperate wine store.
Only minutes to the Adelaide CBD, a short walk to the Adelaide Oval and the retail and cafe strip of O'Connell Street it is one of the most tightly held residential locations in Adelaide.
