A Church With a View 

You’ll enjoy sipping your morning coffee or evening wine in the garden of this beautiful 1930s church conversion, getting lost in the spectacular and expansive views across the Pacific Ocean to Taiaroa Heads and Aramoana.

Boasting a large and unique open-plan living and dining area, and kitchen with converted confessional pantry plus gas cooktop, this home in the quiet village of Seacliff is a must-see! The Flemish glass leadlight windows (redesigned by Dunedin artist Hazel Heal) cast a rainbow of colour throughout, enhancing the many character features of the original Our Lady of Perpetual Succour Catholic Church.

With a spacious renovated master bedroom, mezzanine sleeping and office space, and a second additional sleeping area, plus large bathroom and adjoining laundry, there’s plenty of space inside this gracious property. Heated by a woodburner and heatpump, this home has floor and ceiling insulation and a brand new hot water cylinder on wetback.

The garden is well-established, with a greenhouse, vegetable patches and a sunny courtyard with herb garden. Seacliff is just 30 minutes from the centre of Dunedin, and is in close proximity to the beautiful local beaches of Warrington and Karitane. With Truby King Reserve just across the road, this home is in the perfect spot for exploring the local area.

There is ample off-street parking for a number of vehicles, plus the boat and caravan. Additionally, the property currently leases 450sqm of land from Kiwi Rail (at $350 per annum until 2025), encompassing a rail shed that provides a large storage or workshop space.
