The rise and views alone make this 1720sqm church block heaven sent.
Overlooking the quaint town's picturesque semi-rural hillside and set amongst the region's food and wine tourist meccas of Woodside, Lenswood, and Lobethal - this tumble-down chance of a lifetime on a hammerhead block does have its fine print...
The Charleston Uniting Church and Cemetery's local heritage importance means whatever development aspiration you have - be it a gallery, community facility, or a residential/Airbnb remodel - it must meet the restoration guidelines of the Adelaide Hills Council.
While the church will stay put, it is unsafe to enter or inhabit at present and will require a restoration of the highest order; any intention to add another dwelling, extend, or improve the site must also meet the Council's planning approvals, and will be subject to the effect on its local heritage and community value.
There is an invaluable silver lining - its magical Adelaide Hills location.
On its quiet country radar are rolling hills, world-class wineries, sought-out culinary experiences and cafes, scenic drives, recreational bikeways, parks, trails, and history, all some 40 minutes via the freeway to the city.
Some of that history can be yours.
For those who can envision the property's potential glory, with the blessing of the Adelaide Hills Council and its call for a sympathetic restoration, we have every faith.
