An attractive period property, understood to date back to 1868, which proudly sits in the heart of Strathalbyn's historic and busy High Street.
The main building comprises six rooms plus a central hallway. The rooms have all been used for the display of sales items for the vendor's antiques business and could continue to be used for retail or have potential for professional office use. The main front room features large glazed display windows with a central entrance door way. There is a second entrance providing access into the central hallway, allowing the property to be potentially split into two or more separate tenancies. Period features include deep skirting boards, high ceilings of up to 3.4 m, timber floor boards, solid stone walls and three open fire places, two of which are fitted with mantels. Improvements include electrically connected chandeliers to the main rooms. The rear room has also recently been carpeted. The building is equipped with a ducted reverse cycle air conditioning system. There is a surround sound B/O four speaker system. A security alarm system is also installed. Total floor area of the shop including the hall way is approximately 144 sqm.
To the southern side of the shop is an attached shed of approx 37sqm. The shed is clad in painted corrugated metal sheeting with double timber swing doors which open out onto the High Street. Although the shed is currently used for storage, there is potential for it to be improved and converted into a separate tenancy (STCC).
At the rear of the shop is a small courtyard with covered stair access to a fine cellar space. There is also a tool shed here and ramped access to a pergola fronted single storey residential flat.
The residence is approximately 70.5 sqm but extremely well presented, featuring an open plan kitchen dining/living area, a master bedroom and a second bedroom.

The total site area is approx 398 sqm.
