This former Salvation Army hall has been converted into a stunning modern home

A former Salvation Army charity hall in Sydney’s inner west suburb of Leichhardt has been converted into a gorgeous modern home complete with cathedral ceilings, a resort-style bath and garden.

The shell of the 1916 building remains untouched in its original exterior form, while the interior has been entirely transformed and brought into 2020.

After entering through the 200-year-old Argentinian front door, guests are welcomed into the home with high cathedral ceilings, unique fixtures, engineered flooring and a relaxing garden at the back.

The current owners purchased the property from the Salvation Army 23 years ago in a run-down condition and decided a renovation was necessary.

The property is listed with Cobden & Hayson’s Ben Southwell and is located on 54-56 Carlisle Street – only six kilometres from Sydney’s CBD.

Mr Southwell said during the renovation the owners wanted to make sure the hall keeps its sense of character.

‘They wanted to do something sympathetic to the original design,’ he said.

‘Everything has been in such a way to ensure it takes nothing away from the hall like the extension, which blends effortlessly into the rest of the hall.’
