A converted Fitzroy church hall at 182 Fitzroy St — which featured as the home in Guy Pearce's TV drama Jack Irish — sold for $2,446,000 on the weekend.

Bettering its reserve by $446,000, there had been $1.9 million to $2 million price guidance for the gold-rush-era Independent Hall which has served as a church, Aboriginal mission, kindergarten and film set.

Since 1973, it’s been a home, Nelson Alexander agent Rick Daniel said.

It has also been the setting for several television productions such as Ricky & Pete and The Tenderhook.

It has been renovated for family and work-from-home living since it last traded for $563,000 in 2001.

Its previous owners include the late Australian composer Peter Tahourdin.

Comprising two bedrooms and a home office, the eclectic property features an expansive living and dining room with beamed ceilings and French doors that open to a deep brick-paved courtyard.
