An historic former church at Lucknow is back on the market just 158 days after it was bought at auction.
And the asking price of $550,000 is $120,000 more than it sold for at last November's auction - without any major changes to the property.
Incentive Real Estate agent Andre Broekhuizen said the owner had changed his mind about converting the 147-year-old St John the Evangelist Church in Lucknow into a 'posh' Airbnb.
"He said he had found something a whole lot easier in Bathurst," he said.
Mr Broekhuizen said the property, which went on the market in April, had attracted interest.
"I've got a few sniffing around," he said.
Mr Broekhuizen said it was a unique building that could attract a buyer looking for something out of the ordinary.
"It's a bit of a unique product, 150 years old. It's a love it or hate prospect from the start," he said.
Mr Broekhuizen said the property was largely the same as when it was sold at auction in November.
"There's a few less pews and it doesn't have the bell out the front," he said.
A report to Orange City Council's meeting on Tuesday night from the Lucknow Community Committee said the bell should be put on heritage display.
A meeting of the committee was told it was suggested, "the church bell and sign from the former Lucknow Anglican Church be taken to the Wentworth Mine site and installed as a heritage exhibition."
Other matters arising from the meeting include that historic photos of Lucknow, being stored at the town's hotel, would be displayed at the hotel after refurbishments.
