Ready for Conversion 671 Tunnack Road, PARATTAH TAS 7120
Built in 1890 on a small rise overlooking the quaint, rural village of Parattah, this beautiful church has witnessed the joys, triumphs and sadness of generations of the local people. It is now time for this lovely building to have its own conversion and begin a new chapter for itself and the astute buyers who see its amazing potential.
This very sturdy building sits on dressed blocks of Sandstone and boasts solid timber floors along with walls of untouched Baltic Pine. The high, vaulted ceiling has plenty of room to build a mezzanine level for bedrooms and the open space is ideal for a kitchen / dining / lounge. The vestry at the back of the church would be perfect for the bathroom and the vestibule at the front makes a grand entrance.
Council approval would have to be sought to convert the church to a dwelling or there is potential to relocate the building to another site; once again, this would need council permission. The building was wired for electricity but this hasn’t been used for some time so would need to be tested. No plumbing has been installed.
There is almost 3000m2 of land ideal for terracing into gardens, vegetable beds and fruit trees. The highest point of the property would be a perfect spot for a gazebo from which to enjoy the beautiful valley views. Parattah is only a few minutes drive from Oatlands which has a Medical Centre, District School (Kinder to Year 12), an IGA Supermarket and many shops, cafes, etc. It is approx. 1 hour 15 minutes drive to Hobart.
