Own your piece of history C1861:
The Former Kilmore Post Office
2 Powlett Street Kilmore

Situated on a 564 sqm high profile corner site zoned commercial, situated opposite the vibrant Hudson Park and with a brand new Liberty service station just developed on the adjacent corner, this landmark property provides an extraordinary opportunity to acquire your own piece of Victoria's history but also benefit from the many business opportunities it presents.
Built in 1861 as the original Kilmore post office, this two-storey bluestone Victorian gem traded continuously for this purpose until 1995, evolving over the years with an architectural beauty that has not waned.

Located in a Commercial 1 zone, with multiple options on offer for single or mixed use, including retail, offices, commercial and residential. Although currently vacant, it was leased for the last 15 years until September 2019 for hospitality purposes, with 3-phase power, commercial kitchen, cool-room, full toilet and washroom facilities downstairs and modern bathroom upstairs. It boasts breathtakingly oversized rooms with soaring ceilings all set off by a stunning cedar return staircase. Heating is provided by dedicated hydronic heating systems for both levels controlled by 2 Baxi Burners, and 5 split systems provide cooling and back up heating, allowing for ease of use for multiple businesses or residential opportunities or a mix of both. The electrics and plumbing have all been recently upgraded.

This architecturally stunning building was one of the first Public Works Department projects completed under architect William Wardell, who was renowned for his public building designs which create imposing and individualistic constructions. The former post office, having had two private owners, was subject to major addition and updates in 2004. The building is set out in a T-shaped plan and has projecting gabled bays to the north, south and east which also spill in light through oversized arched feature windows. The verandahs, typical of the architectural era, are situated to the north and east and offer outdoor places to sit; ideal for a beer garden or cafe-style eatery/restaurant, with your imagination being the limit (STCA). So, re-develop, owner occupy or simply enjoy an attractive yield with secure capital growth. Whichever way you look at it The Former Kilmore Post Office at 2 Powlett Street Kilmore provides an outstanding opportunity to secure a prized investment with unrivalled potential.
