Sensational Opportunity! Historic Landmark Property (circa 1896).
Proudly nestled on the rise overlooking the fabulous surf beaches of Middleton and Basham's Beach, this beautiful sandstone Edwardian building has been part of the South Coast's history for over 120 years.
Recently a family home with a separate self-contained holiday let (Magpie Cottage), this property has had many fabulous lives including a famous Restaurant (Basil's) in the 80's and an upmarket bed and breakfast and luxury retreat. Originally built as a Temperance Hotel last century, this fantastic property now has its own bar (liquor licence available) and solar heated "Roman style' inground swimming pool.
A fully equipped Commercial kitchen with separate preparing room and cool room will entice the new owners to perhaps open a new Café/Bistro (STCC) – much needed in Middleton. Downstairs there is his and her toilets plus a disabled toilet. On the carpark side of the building there are lush gardens with a fabulous paved pergola area – the perfect space for alfresco dining. There are multiple living rooms including the grand formal dining room and an intimate cocktail style bar. Upstairs there are 4 king size bedrooms and 4 heritage style bathrooms complete with beautiful heritage claw baths.
Lofty deep corniced ceiling, beautiful ceiling roses and impressive wide hallways with ornate Victorian arches and a total of 8 original Victorian fireplaces. Yes this old girl has character and style from a by-gone era. Rarely do properties like this come on the market – especially in this price range!
Magpie Cottage is located to the rear of the property. A successful holiday let sleeps up to 6 people and has 2 large stylish bathrooms. It has its own entrance from the side street and there is potential to sub-divide (STCC). So many possibilities/opportunities – live in the Cottage, and let the main building be a B & B or Restaurant/Café, or keep the main building as a magnificent family home.
Ideally located in the main street of Middleton this fabulous property is walking distance to the Beach, Cafes and newly built General Store. The local pub is across the road and a scrumptious bakery is just next door!! In winter you can watch the whales from the century old balcony and enjoy a glass of red from an open fireplace, but its summertime when Middleton really comes alive. Be part of the next generation of Custodians of this fabulous property, a "Magical" lifestyle awaits!
