The site is irregular in shape, with a straight northern boundary, boundaries to the south and west that meet at the junction of Anglesea Road and Simmonscourt Road, and a smaller boundary to the east.
The former church building was deconsecrated in July 2020. Vehicular access into the site is provided by a gated entrance at the site’s southern boundary along Simmonscourt Road and a second gate at the intersection of Simmonscourt Road and Anglesea Road. A smaller pedestrian entrance is located at the west of the site along Anglesea Road.

St Mary’s was designed by John Semple and was completed in 1830. It took the name from the demolished St Mary’s Church previously situated in Donnybrook Village where the graveyard remains. The church extends to a gross internal area of approx. 484 sq.m. (5,200 sq.ft.). The interior of the church has high vaulted ceilings with timber buttressing and several notable historic features, including large stained­glass windows, an organ, marble altar reredos and an ornate marble pulpit.

The longer northern and southern aspects of the structure are lined with stone columns capped with ornate mini conical spires and the primary entrance at the western aspect sits under the bell tower. The exterior of the structure is built from grey stone, and there are multiples entrances in and out of the church.
The layout of the church building is cross­shaped, and while both the interior and exterior of the church have been well maintained, the property has suffered from subsidence in the past. A structural report on the subsidence issue was previously prepared and a copy is available to intending bidders. It is provided for information purposes only and without responsibility on the part of the vendor.

The former church has been divided between a religious worship area and a parish hall with kitchen. There is a small upper floor office area with 2 no. wc/whb off the landing. The ground floor rear entrance contains a disabled wc/whb
