The property was built in 1912 using timber from when Eumundi was a local logging town and one of the first churches in the district.

The original bell still stands in the grounds which are now the backyard.

Marketed through Noosa Hinterland Realty sales consultant Adam Kuczynski, the home will go under the hammer on Saturday, March 28.

"It's a cracker of the property, with some awesome local history," Mr Kuczynski said.

"It is historically listed and actually funded by the community more than 100 years ago.

"Despite it being so old, the home is in such good condition and most of it is all original.

"The timber is the same and the bedroom is where the altar used to be. The stained-glass window is still there too."

Mr Kuczynski said the home was once used by the early settlers to congregate and in 1999 it was added to the Queensland Heritage Resister.

He said the home had attracted interest from "everywhere".

"A lot have been history buffs who appreciate buildings like this," he said.

"But it's been from locals and interstate as well. There will be a lot of people here on auction day."

He said the current owner had loved her tenure at the property but was looking to downsize.
