History meets Contemporary with a Touch of Commercial

Possibilities, potential and opportunities are all words that come to mind when thinking about the former home of Gainger's Garage & Bus Lines. Going back to the early 1900's, this property has been a huge part of Beeac's history. The street facade tells the story.

Inside there is a studio apartment with gorgeous polished concrete floors which overlooks a stunning courtyard. Brick feature walls, above ground water pipes and creeping vines create a "Melbourne" vibe like no other. Sitting amongst the multitude of fruit and nut trees (apricots, mulberry, walnut, quince, pomegranate, almond, plum, nectarine, pear, apple and lemon) the city meets the country in the most profound way.

Through the garden gate is the beautifully planted vacant block with access from Coulston Street, presenting the astute buyer with the opportunity to reside in the studio apartment or capitalise on the AirBnB market, establish a retail enterprise in the garage AND potentially subdivide or build another dwelling with a Coulston Street address (STCA).

The huge elegant display case of the garage area has been an artist-run-initiative (ARI) for the past five years: WINDOWSPACE has showcased the work of Melbourne, interstate and local artists - a book based on these activities will be published before the end of the year. The garage area, once mooted as a ballroom, has beautiful gables and a polished floor, white panels hang against the bare brick walls.

Solar panels (1.5Kw) generate income. Two rainwater tanks at rear offer fresh water to complement town water.

Unique to the market, this commercial building has township zoning and retail single occupancy use. If you would like to find your muse, we welcome you to inspect 79 Main Street Beeac.

This town has its own primary school, general store, lolly shop, well-respected pub, post office, tennis courts and lake. If you aren't familiar with this charming country town and surrounding area, (approx. 40 mins to Geelong, Lorne and Ballarat) we suggest you take a look at The Age's publication. https://www.theage.com.au/entertainment/six-reasons-to-visit-beeac-20181005-h1696d.html and take a look at the WINDOWSPACE BEEAC website: windowspace-beeac.blogspot.com
