About this listing

SOLD - This listing was sold in May 2019.

There are whispers in the air, that the mountains won't be thundering to horses' hooves, but could well and truly be inundated with a different rush of gold, mountain biking, it is said, may well be the next wave of excitement in them there hills!
With limited available commercial zoned land left in the East Gippsland township of Omeo, a rare slice of history, and a great opportunity indeed, has hit the market after a staggering 85 years, or more, of ownership. Yes, that's right with enormous history the CWA building in the centre of Omeo is now up for genuine sale.
Originally the brick section of this building, that still stands strong today, was the first Catholic Church from 1873 to 1909, and then became the first catholic school in Omeo from 1909 until 1922. In the early 1930's it was purchased by the local CWA and has been in ownership ever since, with its most recent use as a day care centre.
The property is on approximately 480sqm of Commercial Zone 1 and is fully fenced on all boundaries. Inside the building is a kitchen with high ceilings, an adult and children's toilets, the main original brick building in the centre, and a store room at the rear. Outside in the grounds are two garden sheds and a playground.
This is a remarkable part of the Omeo district history and could lend itself to a range of future uses, STCA, as the area develops further into eco-tourism.

All inspections are strictly by appointment. Call Michael Enever 0458 272797.
