A piece of Jamberoo history is up for the taking.
In February 2016, a luxury home, converted from part of the historic Jamberoo Milk Factory, sold for $1.48 million.
Now its sister property is on the market.
The property at 31 Factory Lane, Jamberoo is for sale, with an asking price of $2,180,000.
In the early 2000’s at the time of milk deregulation, the industry property on Factory Lane was transformed into two residential dwellings.
According to Australian Property Monitors, 31 Factory Lane previously sold for $1.1 million in 2013.
The property had been listed for sale in mid-2016.
Selling agent Vivienne Marris, principal at Elders Real Estate Jamberoo said the Jamberoo Milk Factory, built in 1928, still continues to play a part in the Jamberoo Valley, “not as a commercial venture but as an extraordinary home and a strong visual reminder of a legendary past”.
“A tremendous opportunity awaits an entrepreneur with vision to utilise the large open spaces for artworks, gallery, entertainment space, a restaurant or a combination of all,” she said.
There is also space for potential further garaging, studio apartments and home office opportunities.
The agent said the property had a 90-year history rich in strength and design.
“Unique is a much over-used description for property and particular types of homes, but in this case it’s very appropriate,” Mrs Marris told the Mercury.
“Even though the current owners have completed some very smart renovations, the integrity of the original build from 1928 and the heritage structural artefacts, such as staircases, massive belt drivers and impressive electricity boards remain in place as visual reminders of its legendary history in the Jamberoo Valley.
“The floor plan offers flexibility to explore opportunities with respect to extra accommodation, studios for art space, office space for home business and massive areas for entertaining, or the display of large artworks and impressive sculptures.”
The floor plan on two levels incorporates three bedrooms, three bathrooms, lounge room, family room, parents’ retreat, great room and large double-storey atrium.
The renovations to the property in the past five years have included a new roof and gutters, windows, bathrooms, kitchen, laundry/pantry and garden design.
Inspections by appointment.
