Here at Inhabitat we've covered several incredible examples of renovated churches - and here's another beautiful redux that really answered its owner's prayers. Baker Kavanagh converted this landmark heritage church close to Sydney's center city into two luxury homes. The three bedroom residence recently sold, and interior pics showcase the home's amazing daylighting and chic, modern furnishings. Heck, the luxury apartment even comes complete with an indoor swimming pool.
The larger residence, featured here, is a three bedroom, three bath home situated on three levels, with an extra room that can serve as an office. Charms from the original church like the soaring cathedral ceilings and leadlight windows remain. Sunlight from the north windows streams into the interior providing natural daylight  for all of the floors.
The indoor lap pool on the bottom floor even has an internal terrace overlooking it so family and friends can watch the fun below. Radiant floor heating, a marble kitchen and italian stone tiles up the ante in the 312 sq m (3,358 sq ft) home. Off the back of the church, each residence enjoys its own private terrace. Unfortunately, the place is now off the market, so you missed this chance to live in one of God’s former houses  – but keep checking back on Inhabitat for more!
