Secure a slice of Victorian history with unrivalled potential

A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity has arisen to secure a slice of history with this exquisite c1861 landmark property. Occupying a prominent 564sqm corner site with commercial zoning in the tightly held heart of Kilmore, opposite vibrant Hudson Park, it offers immense scope to make your dream business a reality.

Built by renowned architect of the time, William Wardell, this double storey Victorian treasure served as Kilmore’s post office until 1995, and has since been leased for hospitality purposes.

It is ideally zoned Commerical 1, providing a vast array of options for single or mixed use, including retail, offices, commercial and residential. Vacant since September 2019, it is ready for a new owner to reimagine the next chapter – redevelop (STCA), move straight in or simply enjoy a robust yield with secure capital growth.

A historically significant building, it was one of the first Public Works Department projects featuring Wardell’s signature imposing design. Having had two private owners, it was subject to major additions and updates in 2004, but has retained its unique historic splendour.

Beyond the striking bluestone façade and gabled roof, elegant interiors are defined by spacious original proportions, soaring ceilings and polished floorboards. Downstairs is a superb front room drenched in natural light through arched windows, separate second room with an open fireplace, sitting area with an integrated bar, two powder rooms and a commercial kitchen with a cool room.

In addition, there are two glorious verandahs and a large backyard currently utilised as off street parking via Skehan Place. The undercover outdoor areas provide huge potential to develop year-round alfresco dining for a café or restaurant, or even a beer garden at the rear.

A stunning cedar staircase leads to upstairs accommodation that incorporates two generous bedrooms each with a marble fireplace, a bright third bedroom and modern bathroom with a separate twin vanity.

Features include hydronic heating on both levels controlled by two Baxi burners, five split systems, three-phase power, recently upgraded electrics and plumbing, plus a store room and under-stair storage.
