Nestled in the heart of Sofala, a former gold mining town rich in history and character, this property offers a one-of-a-kind opportunity to purchase a unique complex originally built as a gaol and police station in the 1890s.
The property has been lovingly preserved and repurposed over the years, serving as a popular local café and museum with plenty of character and charm.
And for those looking for a project, there's even an original three-bedroom cottage on the property that's just waiting to be renovated. With a bit of love and elbow grease, this cottage could be transformed into a stunning guesthouse, rental property, or private retreat.
Step inside and you'll be transported back in time, with features like rustic stone walls, sturdy iron doors, and heavy wooden beams that harken back to the property's former life as a gaol and police station.
The café/museum space is cosy and inviting, with plenty of room to accommodate visitors and patrons or can be utilised as an extension of the adjoining four-bedroom residence. This residence is a true gem, with original features like high ceilings and lead-light windows that will make you feel right at home, while the original stables and ample shedding offer plenty of storage options.
One of the most exciting features of this property is the approval for four separate titles. This offers endless potential, including an opportunity for a chef to make a statement in a famous gold mining town. For those looking for a lifestyle change and to capitalise on the booming tourism industry in the region, or for developers looking to create a unique residential or commercial development in the heart of Sofala.
Perfectly Located between Mudgee, Bathurst and Rylstone, 7 Barkly Street offers a large parcel of land with building fittings, and a huge collection of historical memorabilia; combining historical significance, versatility, and potential for growth. Owners welcome to offers.
