As late as 2003, the Toxteth Church in the Glebe neighborhood of Sydney, Australia was empty, ignored.  This 100-year-old chapel rested quietly until it was resurrected by Otto Cserhalmi and Partners, a firm that planned to turn this church into a premier contemporary home.  The new Toxteth Church features four bedrooms and baths, a spacious, clean interior with warm hardwoods and plantlife, and a rooftop veranda that merges with the nature of its lot.  Otto Cserhalmi and Partners are selling the reclaimed church home for $2.374 million on the market now.
