Former Church Turned Duplex

Welcome to 3 Robinson St, a magnificent duplex that has historic significance in the Town of St Marys. Purchased by it’s current owners as the former St Marys Baptist Tabernacle in 2004, this building also served as the local Registry Office from 1827-1935 before being converted to a church by the Gospel Mission in 1939. Following it’s 2004 purchase, renovations began immediately to the church building to convert it into two bungaloft-style units with finished basements. Loving care was put into the conversion, with a nod to existing architectural features. Vaulted ceilings have uncovered the original wood beams, exposing them with significant effect while arched windows line the exterior. The front unit features 3 bedrooms, including a loft Master Bedroom with Ensuite bath and walk-in closet. Main floor is open concept, with custom cabinetry in the kitchen and 4 appliances, hardwood flooring, a laundry cabinet, and natural gas fireplace. The back unit features two bedrooms, with loft Master Bed, Ensuite and walk-in closet, plus an additional basement family room, as well as open concept main floor, stunning electric fireplace, & original stained glass window. Both units have 2.5 baths and are joined together by a raised wood deck that runs the length of the building and offers a view of the Thames River and St Marys Falls, with an easy walk to beautiful downtown St Marys.
