Global charity organisations have traded a Caulfield South corner site, which will become the new headquarters of the Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes (RAOB).

Following the RAOB's recent sale of their Melbourne CBD premises.

Fitzroys agents Chris Kombi and Mark Talbot negotiated the $1.6 million sale of the vacant former bank building at 790 Glen Huntly Road on behalf of The Daughters of Charity of St Vincent de Paul.

Kombi said interest came mainly from investors, owner occupiers and value adders for the Commercial 1-zoned site of 347sqm.

Situated on the corner of Hawthorn Road the property has a combined frontage of more than 40 metres.

“The Buffs”, as they are referred to by members, had been headquartered at the century-old 22 Sutherland Street building in the city since 1954.

The RAOB was established in the United Kingdom in 1822.

The Australian order was established early in the 20th Century and the Club has donated money to charities including Make A Wish Foundation, National Breast Cancer Foundation, the Heart Foundation and Aussie Helpers.

Kombi said that the property suited the Club’s desire to relocate to the inner south-east suburbans, while its accessibility was also a drawcard.
