The former St Peter's Anglican Church is on the market and buyers have a special opportunity to own a piece of the city's history.
The former church in Lake Albert, located on 109 Main Street, sits on a double block and oozes potential, with many interested buyers throwing around ideas of converting the chapel into a cafe, restaurant or motel.
The church was built in 1911 and features a rear three-bedroom cottage and is listed by Kitson Property for $439,000.
Kitson Property sales consultant Conny Blacklock said, although the property needs some tidying up, it's "absolutely beautiful".
"It has gained interest and there's been a whole range of people enquiring about utilising the church and turning it into a motel or coffee shop," she said.
"Some have looked at expanding the church but because it is heritage-listed, it does make it a bit harder.
"It features nice, high ceilings; it's very breathtaking and the beautiful stain-glass windows are adorable."
Ms Blacklock said this property would be ideal for anyone, but requires someone who has vision.
"Any business would be amazing as it's a great location and it would be really nice to see the property get utilised again," she said.
"The church had some restoration done in about 2009 and from the heritage advisor, the porch was a later addition in 1959."
The property features a classic, red brick facade, steep gabled roof and polished pine flooring as well as off-street parking and the sale includes pews, alter, pulpit and the original organ.
Converting churches into businesses or homes is not a new phenomenon and nor to the Riverina.
Sydney resident Nick Stone bought a Yerong Creek church about 12 years ago, which was built in the 1960s and operated as a Lutheran church until 2006.
"I didn't have an idea about converting a church into accommodation as I came across the listing by mistake," Mr Stone said.
"I was looking at real estate in the area and the church sprang up for a cheap price and I thought it would make a beautiful house.
"I had never been to Yerong Creek and so I flew down from Sydney and when I walked in, I thought wow."
The church was converted into holiday accommodation, with the old Yerong Creek Public School that is attached to the church acting as a games room, but still retains its original charm that was built in the early 1900s.
"Since we bought it, we've added a mezzanine level with a spiral staircase, sewage system, built a modern kitchen and upgraded the power," Mr Stone said.
"We decided to turn it into accommodation a couple years after we bought it and painted it and the renting was quite successful.
"There's not too much in Yerong Creek and we're able to rent it out every couple of weeks, and it's paying our mortgage."
Mr Stone said he bought the property, which was listed at $135,000, for about $80,000.
"The building had cracks in it from the drought, which I think scared a lot of people off, but we fixed it," he said.
"The church is a beautiful space and it's completely different to where we live in a two-bedroom flat, with no garden near Manly.
"Our little boy loves it down in Yerong Creek, it's a huge space and we do things differently, like sitting by the fire, playing records and music and it's a totally different vibe."
Mr Stone said it has been a good investment and has been negotiating with council to build another and link the former public school together, while keeping with the heritage.
