Klemich Real Estate selling agent Marina Ormsby said the property had caused quite a stir, attracting 45 groups through the first open weekend.
“We’ve had all sorts of buyers, people that like the heritage architecture as well as people looking for something different,” she said.
“The location is fantastic, mainly attracting people that want to be close to the city.”
A longstanding historic building for the suburb, Ms Ormsby said the quality on offer was outstanding and would likely attract a buyer looking for that quirky edge.
“The feel of the home is quite grand because of the lofty ceilings,” she said.
“It’s had modern conversions, it has beautiful polished concrete floors, original feature church door, leadlights and a lot of warmth.”
The split-level property features an open-plan kitchen, family and dining area on the ground floor, connecting to a quaint courtyard through sliding doors. A study, bathroom and laundry can also be found downstairs.
Head upstairs to find the master suite, with a private balcony, a built-in robe and a stunning ensuite. The second bedroom can also be found upstairs, complete with a built-in robe.
Ms Ormsby said the property had many buyers head over heels, which was understandable given the stunning presentation of the home.
“Everybody loves the thought of it,” she said.
