The three-bedroom penthouse occupies the top floor of The Tracery, a development of four homes within the former Swan Hill Congregational Church.

The church at Swan Hill, near the town centre and about half a mile from the railway station, dates to 1868 and was converted into homes in 2019.

A listing for the apartment on property website Rightmove says: "The front door to the apartment opens into a ground floor hallway with study area to the end and off which leads a guest bedroom with vaulted ceiling. This is complemented by a spacious en suite bathroom featuring a pair of decorative lancet windows.

"An elegant wrought iron, glass and oak staircase rises to the first floor past the spectacular Gothic Tracery window from which the building takes its name, opening into a light and atmospheric open plan kitchen/living/dining room with vaulted ceiling and windows to three elevations framing the surrounding roofscapes.

"This social space is ideal for both comfortable everyday living and larger scale entertaining. The kitchen is fitted with stylish inline cabinetry under Quartz counter tops, a range of Neff appliances and central island.
