Unusual 1970s Woodend school conversion turned trophy home listed

An unusual school conversion has been listed at Woodend for $1.9 million.

The house is quite elevated, and appears to float on the gentle slope, courtesy of its unique sub-floor.

The 3857 square metre allotment is undulating. 

It's not your Victorian or Edwardian brick or timber building.

The former Catholic primary school was built in 1974 to an innovative design by a priest who was also an architect.

It has an external frame.

It has been repurposed as a family home with huge interconnected living areas.

Joan Gladman Real Estate agent Joan Gladman has the listing.

Separate from the main residence, is an elegant and sizeable studio, workshop and double garage.

Some 8kW of solar panels make an eco-contribution to the energy needs of the house.
