Ideally located on approx 1 acre in the heart of Allansford, here is a fantastic opportunity to secure a sizable commercial building, with 2 residences, sheds and vacant land for an amazing price.

The iconic Old General Store is a solid sandstone building of around 190sqm, built around 1893 and extended in 1910. It has been the heart and soul of Allansford for many years and has also operated a Bakehouse and a local Bank sub-branch during the 1950s - 1960s. The building has some unusual features that could be incorporated into a variety of modern-day business uses: a wood-fired bakers oven; bakehouse shed complete with flour room; loading dock; an office with safe (empty) in the old bank; a huge open display room with grand double door entry; basic kitchen, laundry and toilet facilities. The roof of the shop has been replaced, a new front verandah added & some wiring replaced and the power board upgraded.

While the grand sandstone building dominates the front facade, there is much more to this property than meets the eye. Behind the shop, there is a fully self-contained Ifco portable unit - powered, plumbed, sewered, etc. which comprises 2 bedrooms, living area, kitchen, bathroom & laundry. Adjacent to the shop, a 3BR hardiplank home provides a second, more comfortable residence. Relocated to the site in 2000, the house is in good order, comprising 3 bedrooms with BIRs, spacious kitchen/meals, lounge room with gas log fire, good bathroom & laundry, enclosed yard, carport and single garage.

The property has all town services, 3 rainwater storage tanks with pressure pumps servicing the shop and both dwellings with town and tank water, there are 3 sewerage connection points and separate meters for the shop, house & garage, portable home & shed. There is ample room for parking for a business and approx 1/2 acre (2000m2) at the back of the property for additional residential or commercial use or further development.

Aside from the long storage shed at the front of the property that has been used with the shop, there is an impressive open span industrial shed of approx 24m x 12m x 4.5m high with concrete floor and an open steel shed which measures approx 6m x 12m.

This is a very unique and diverse property which presents a multitude of options for commercial & residential use. Family owned for almost 60 years, this property has a rich history and is now ready for new owners to take it in a new direction. It would make a fantastic cafe or restaurant; could be used as a base for a community group or organisation, for offices or any type of commercial venture; or even converted into an impressive residence... the options really are endless.

The shop building, house, unit, shed and building blocks at the back of the property could be utilised together or some parts potentially subdivided and sold off separately. The township zoning supports commercial, residential and industrial uses so there are many possibilities including running a shop/ restaurant/ business from here with room to expand and ample car parking, sheds, etc.

With school, kinder, Hotel, Gateway Shopping, Hopkins River, Great Ocean Rd all just moments away, these sort of opportunities are so hard to come by this close to all the action. Please call to arrange your inspection and never look back!
