An old bluestone hall has been born again as a dramatic contemporary home. I'm stalking in South Melbourne. Link here while it lasts.

Stalking a church

It's no secret that Kim and I worship a church conversion. We love to see these old buildings have a second coming. We haven't found very many lately but the wait is over. It's time to sing the praises of my latest stalking target. The little old church is a one bedroom apartment while the church hall out the back has become an open plan home with loads of light and space. Live in the hall and run a holiday let in the old church? My idea of heaven. It's in Mount Hawthorn, Perth in Western Australia. Link here while it lasts.

A converted Victorian dairy 

Far away in the land of Notting Hill is a beautiful old brick building that was a former dairy. Architect Theo Otten happened upon the magical structure and created a voluminous, minimalist home fit for a king...or an art collector. For sale by Domus Nova

Railway House

I love a well-executed conversion. This one is a former railway cottage situated between a railway line and a national park in Velsen, The Netherlands. It was designed by ZW6 Interiors and is such a beautiful marriage of old heritage and modern aesthetics. Steel, concrete & glass blend magically with greenery, crumbled brick and wooden beams. What a dream house.

A church conversion in New Orleans

Here is a church conversion doozie for you all, as we here at DTI love our converted churches! This link was sent by Beverly of Houston, TX, who thought we might enjoy this former church turned residences in New Orleans, LA. Now I have to warn you ahead of time of the hideous decor throughout the home (my apologies if the current owners read this - but they probably won't because if they did read our blog they would know better than to do a pale yellow/red colour scheme and the master bedroom....well, I am speechless). Let's just imagine the possibilities here. It is a breathtaking space, with massive open floor plan, live green roof to chill out on, and 3 1-bedroom apartments to offset the insane mortgage payments this $2.5 mil house will set you back. And the exterior is heavenly. ;) (Link here while it lasts)
