Unique church converted to a modern marvel is Homely's 'House of the Week'


It's not often you get a home that looks better than it did 150 years ago, in fact it's not often you get a home that has been around for 150 years. However, 1030 Portarlington Road, Curlewis, VIC provides the perfect blend of history and contemporary living on 2 acres of land. 

Built as both a Church and a home, this coveted property is situated over 70 squares (approx.) and has recently been modified to add a gorgeous French style extension. Providing a very unique offering, this home is truly one of a kind. Appealing to both locals who want a change of style or for city slickers who want an entirely different change of pace, the living options are endless for the lucky owner.

And if you are not a swimmer, don't worry, you can still appreciate the spectacular bay views right from your living room.
