About this listing
Calling all visionaries, there is so much potential on offer at the old West Kentish General Store, Public Hall and Bootmakers Cottage.

The opportunities are endless as the property lends itself to a multitude of uses including as an iconic tourism destination (STCA) within the high visitor destination area of the Cradle Coast region. Just a short drive from Sheffield (The Town of Murals) and on the way to Lake Barrington and Cradle Mountain and with views of the stunning Mt Roland and surrounding picturesque countryside.

The main house Circa 1880 was the original general store until the 1970's, retaining many of the features including high ceilings, fireplaces, beautiful timber joinery and the safe. The home is now configured into 2 separate living zones comprising 2 kitchens, 2 bathrooms, 5 bedrooms (2 upstairs with a living area in between) 3 living areas downstairs, a grand entrance and hallway and a formal dining room with a table that would seat 20 guests.. The layout would suit two families or possibly the operation of guest accommodation. There is a multitude of cooking and heating options including gas cooktop, electric oven, woodheaters, heat pump, and a combustion stove for cooking that also provides hot water and radiator heating.

The Hall certainly has a lot of history and is a landmark in the area - if only the walls could talk - the stories this building could tell will have you yearning for simpler times when village dances were a social highlight and sporting events were a must. The hall was built originally for returned services and has had some renovation work completed. It could now enjoy another stint at becoming a go to destination as a business, group accommodation or for pop up events (STCA) with a kitchen and bathroom facilities.

The bootmakers cottage completes the package and is a romantic vision of the past when the local residents would leave their boots to be repaired on the window shelf by the front door. It has been operating as a self contained bed and breakfast.

The land area is 3.357 hectares approximately and could easily become an integral component for a artisan producer with stock or a niche produce business to further complement the property's future.

Other features of the property include - a large garage that was previously the original stables and then housed the hardware department of the general store, 2 carports to house 8 vehicles, workshop space and undercover entertaining area. Each building has it's own septic system and there are water tanks and bore water on the property. There have been many renovations and updated to the house, hall and cottage including rewiring and plumbing works.

This unique property really does have masses of potential and with the proposed tourism developments in the area it offers many opportunities for you to establish a unique lifestyle or to investigate the business opportunities.
