Don't miss this opportunity to purchase a historical landmark on two adjoining titles right in the heart of the CBD.
Bovell Cottage sited on Lot 2, was originally built in circa 1882 and was the home of Jospeh Bovell, one of the settlers of the south west region.
This heritage listed limestone building is an example of a single storey Victorian Georgian style cottage with the steeply pitched roof, original Sheoak shingles, high decorative ceilings, sweeping hallway with ornate arches, original fireplaces and period timber floors.
The current owners commenced renovation in 1990 with much of the interior retaining a high degree of authenticity.
Currently used as office space, with four large consulting rooms, upstairs attic furbished as a board room, small kitchenette and toilet facilities.
Regional Centre zoning allows for business and residential use within the special character area of Adelaide Street.
Positioned in the CBD, only a short stroll to shops, restaurants, cafes and approximately 350m to the stunning blue waters of Geographe Bay, taking in the spectacular views of the Busselton Jetty, newly developed foreshore and Shelter Brewery.
The City of Busselton have included the property within the Adelaide Street Precinct which encourages the development of sites, subject to approvals, with either residential or commercial developments or a mixture of both.
The siting of the existing structure allows ample scope for its retention (required) and the addition of either a single large building or a number of free standing structures that could provide retail and office opportunities at ground level and with residential units above at first and second floor level. Information memorandum available on request.
