Ideal Shop Dwelling Opportunity in Prime Location
Long ago, these terrace style properties were conceived and constructed to allow families to combine their business and living arrangements together in one location. Whilst this lifestyle choice fell out of favour in the era of the quarter acre block and picket fence, it's now back with a vengeance. This shop dwelling lifestyle is back in favour because it offers discerning tenants the ability to meet a variety of modern lifestyle objectives including low work transport costs, reduction of carbon miles, living and working in a gentrified urban environment, and meeting today's version of work life flexibility and balance.
The property itself offers a myriad of options for businesses. Currently used as a hairdressing and beauty salon, you could simply take over and start trading a similar business immediately. Alternatively you could use the downstairs open plan retail space for all sorts of retail applications, food service, offices or consulting suits, etc.
The ground floor plan is dominated by the retail space, but also offers a separate room and kitchen with rear yard access. Outside you get rear alley way access via a roller door to a large yard area which could park 2 cars. It also offers space for outdoor living and entertaining, as well as a water tight structure with laundry, toilet and storage facilities.
The upper floor is flexible and offers a reasonable kitchen, main bathroom, and three rooms that could be used as 2 bedrooms and a single living area, OR 3 separate bedrooms.
Located on a tram line, and within walking distance of a multitude of shops, restaurants, cafes and eateries this is a high exposure site with access to the works! Be quick!
