An amazing opportunity to own Murtoa's unique and original CBA Bank Building, built in 1883 with 1877 timber annex at rear. This property has been an Antique Centre and magnificent home, but the property is now searching for its next owner and its next chapter. This building lends itself to so many potential uses, since the strong revival of Murtoa with increased tourism from the incredible Stick Shed and the popular Silo Art Trail nearby.

Excellent scope to open a central B&B, Retail Store, Cafe, Nursery or just spoil yourself & your family by living in a magnificent home surrounded by the charm & character of yesteryear.
This property truly needs to be inspected to fully appreciate the original features, starting with the magnificent double cedar glazed entrance doors leading to the retail/second living area & managers office, complete with the original usable bank vault with domed ceiling, to secure all of your treasures. Be impressed by the 14ft pressed metal ceilings downstairs and 12ft ceilings upstairs, accessible by a curved, one of a kind, cedar spiral staircase. The ground floor formal lounge, features a newly installed wood burner fitted into one of the 4 impressive slate & marble fireplaces and 3 split systems, for year round comfort. This room leads to an office and stunning kitchen/casual dining, that captures the morning sun, complete with timber cabinets & draws, polished timber floors, dishwasher, original wood stove & old red brick chimney, modern cooking plus a walk in grand butler's pantry. Adjacent to the kitchen is a quaint timber lined room that would have been used originally as a maid's bedroom, and later as a dining room, but is currently their music room. Pressed metal features in the modernised bathroom with toilet, bath & shower plus good storage.
Never be short of space, with 3 oversized bedrooms plus a 4th currently used as the library, plus there is also potential to build an ensuite to the master, in the adjacant, smaller spare room.
There's so much more outside: Large laundry, new outside toilet, and most importantly, the 9ft square underground cellar to store the Grange Hermitage at perfect temperature. All of this is set on a large double block in a prime central location, 1 title, 12m x 6 m garage/storage shed, concrete floor, 1.5 kw solar panels, 1880's underground water tank with iron lid, good securely fenced yard with large shade trees and formal garden beds. Potential to subdivide the 1607m2 alotment or build additional dwellings [STCA]. There is so much to love about this property, come see for yourself. It's a wonderful place to make more history.
