Melbourne's historic Collingwood venue, from where the Barley Corn Hotel operated for about 140 years, is to be auctioned on November 12.

The 177-181 Johnson Street address comprises the former Barley Corn Hotel, currently a 100-bed backpackers hostel.

Set on a 558 square metre site, the property has frontages to Johnston Street, Harmsworth Street and Little Francis Street. 

It has been listed by Michael Taylor and Tom Maule of Teska Carson, which is marketing the property. 

"The three-street frontages provide flexibility for any development, while the current lease provides a handy income stream during planning and permit application stages,’’ Taylor said.

The property will be sold subject to a three-year lease from April 2014 to The Barley Corn Pty Ltd with a further three-year option at a current rental of $88,209.49 per annum.

"Collingwood was once known as a working class area but it has been through a significant gentrification process in recent years with a number of new developments driven by a huge upsurge in popularity," Maule said.

Collingwood is one of the oldest suburbs of Melbourne and has several historical buildings.

The sought-after location is just 1.5 kilometres to the Melbourne CBD.
