Rural lifestyle with business potential

Modern, architecturally designed 220sqm house with lovingly renovated 74sqm historic church and separate 29sqm studio all set on a 2024sqm of native planted land.

Centre Bush village is located half an hour north of Invercargill, seven minutes from Winton and under two hours from New Zealand's adventure-capital Queenstown with Queenstowns International airport just 139km away. Te Anau with its lakes, world famous walks and the gateway to surreal Fiordland is a mere 113km scenic drive. There is excellent fishing right at the doorstep, with some of NZ's best fishing rivers in close proximity, the Oreti River is only 1km away.

When the owners purchased St Albans Church their original vision was a renovation project. After living there they decided to preserve the character and retain its originality, this approach dictated their decision to build a new house behind the church. The result is a magnificent new two storey residence with direct access to the church via a covered glass walkway.

The three bedroom, two bathroom ultra-modern home, with polished concrete floors and diesel underfloor central heating has rustic touches throughout the kitchen and both bathrooms, with unique finishing choices.

Stairs lead up to the master bedroom with balcony views of the Takitimu Mountains, with walk in wardrobe, ensuite and private retreat/lounge. Downstairs is the internal access double garage, two generous sized bedrooms, a stylish bathroom, funky industrial style kitchen, media room and formal dining room and breakfast room as part of the open plan kitchen. Living areas flow out to extensive decking on both sides, with double glazed tri-fold doors that open right up, allowing unlimited indoor/outdoor lifestyle and entertainment options.

The Sunday School originally onsite has been renovated and insulated, with the addition of a deck and a restored pot-belly fire. This building can function as an office, fourth bedroom, studio or workshop.
