TALK about a holy living experience.

A beautiful former church that was turned into a five-bedroom home north of the Toowoomba CBD is up for sale.

The old St Thomas' Church on Allan St in North Toowoomba has been put on the market through Colliers International, after a multi-year renovation.

In the online listing, agent Robbie Witt said the 132-year-old structure combined historical architecture with modern living, including three bathrooms, four living spaces, cottage gardens and air-conditioning.

"Originally built in 1885, this home now consists of five bedrooms, a separate office, three bathrooms and a total of four living spaces," he said.

"As well as beautiful cottage style gardens (with original lych gate) and off-street parking for three cars, you get all the grandeur you would expect from a previous place of worship.

"From the street, your excitement will already be building - seeing the high roof lining and stained glass windows."

Mr Witt said the current owners were clever in utilising the arched roof to create more space for private living areas.

"The living room, as vast as it is, somehow maintains a cosy aspect and with a built-in projector screen system, it is a great place for movie nights," he said.

"When the guest numbers grow, you have perfect flow to the lounge area, which again makes full use of the original space that was offered here.

"As if there weren't already enough highlight features, the stairway to the upper level is a spectacle by itself.

"The owners have cleverly brought together wood and glass here, so that you can take in the full impact of the cathedral like ceilings as you move upstairs."

An inspection is scheduled at the property for Saturday from 11am.

For more information, call Mr Witt on 0421 943 855 or check out the online listing.
