Sold in Sydney: Refab Church Turned Modern Home + Pool

Recently resold in Sydney, Australia, this large corner church looks quite ordinary on the outside but hides a modern house,, chic baths and a commercial marble kitchen within.

A pair of alfresco terraces match soaring cathedral ceilings, held up by thin steel members and existing structural elements, while iron details and original windows add a touch of human-scaled decor.

Above the main level sits an adults-only retreat for parents while letting them look down on kids playing below, with glass railings and floor-to-ceiling glazed walls.

Lower-level Italian stone floor tiles and wooden flooring are heated from underneath, making the transition down into and up out of the open-air pool all the more appealing. Listing via HomeHound.
