Rare Business Opportunity in the Heart of Wine Country
It is not often that a property like this one comes onto the market: a 5.8-acre (2.3 ha) slice of Hunter Valley real estate in an idyllic rural setting—with zoning to operate a small business—just minutes from the Hunter Expressway.
Astute investors will appreciate the superb location on the main arterial road leading from the Expressway, as well as its RU2 zoning, which allows—with consent—for businesses such as a cafe, restaurant, cellar door, medical premises, dual occupancy, self storage units, and retail.
Several commercial enterprises have operated from this property, including a chocolate manufacturing and retail concern. Most recently, an antiques and old wares business was run from here, and there remains a significant amount of stock from this venture. The vendor is aiming for a walk-in, walk-out transaction and so is offering the stock to potential buyers at a substantial discount.
The commercial building on the site has a main showroom area plus two additional generous retail spaces, as well as three staff toilets and a staff shower, and a commercial kitchen (without appliances). There is also abundant storage and roller door access for deliveries. A sealed driveway offers safe, easy access from Lovedale Road and there is a large area for off-street parking. Adjacent to this building is the owner’s residence, a two-bedroom, one-bathroom cottage.
With its established trees and expansive, park-like grounds, this lovely property also has the potential to become the site of an impressive family home. However, given its zoning, and its proximity to vineyards, the Hunter Expressway, and the proposed Anvil Creek residential subdivision, this property is likely to appeal to investors who recognise its enormous business potential.
There is much to love about this property at the gateway to the Hunter Valley vineyards and we welcome the opportunity to show it to potential buyers. Don’t hesitate to contact one of our team to arrange an inspection.
