1 Fleischer Lane Glenlyon VIC 3461
Former St John's Anglican Church c1873-741 Fleischer Lane, Glenlyon
The former St John's Anglican Church is one of Victoria's most aesthetically pleasing and positioned country church buildings. Situated on 4,421 sqm in the historic hamlet of Glenlyon, the early English gothic style church has dramatic landscape presence and is architecturally and historically important to the region.
Built in 1873-74 for 422 pounds, it retains many original features typical of church buildings of this style including bluestone plinths, tuck pointed red brick, parapeted gable, buttresses, steep pitched welsh slate roof, pointed arch windows, weatherboard vestry and vaulted pine ceilings.
The property is framed by magnificent Douglas Firs, a picket entry and views towards Mount Alexander. The grounds are level with a scattering of native trees, a perfect canvas to establish a woodland or country garden.
The church is positioned in one of country Victoria's premier tourism regions just minutes to Daylesford/Hepburn Springs and the townships of Kyneton, Trentham, Woodend and Mount Macedon. Close by are gourmet restaurants, cafes, antique stores, galleries, wineries, spa and wellbeing experiences, mineral springs, parks, gardens and walking trails. The iconic Glenlyon General Store is in walking distance. Melbourne CBD is 110km and the airport 90km.
Representing a rare, affordable and unique opportunity to restore and develop the property into a beautiful country home, weekend country escape, gallery or cafe (STCA), its use is only limited by your imagination and creativity.
