A Victorian-style homestead on a site exceeding one hectare on the road to Victoria’s Phillip Island has been listed for private sale with an asking price of $1.8 million.

Known as 5 Acton Road Bass and about 7 kilometres from San Remo, the property has a land area of 1.2 hectares. 

There is a building next door which can be used for industrial or retail purposes.

While the property has a 200 metre frontage to the Bass Highway to Phillip Island and the Promontory, the current VicRoads traffic flow counts show almost six million vehicles a year pass this property.

Improvements include the three or four-bedroom brick homestead built seven years ago. 

Selling agent Ray Cullen of Ruralco describes it as “simply an excellent family home with every mod con and was built to an exceptional high standard and is set in a large landscaped garden and lawn area”.

Next door, the portal framed building has a floor plan of 1,342 sqm metres. 

It was designed and built by industrial contractor Bob Walpole with a full range of facilities including multiple pedestrian and roller doors, heavy duty concrete foundations and hard stand, plus a retail area shopfront with a veranda besides other amenities. 

Inside is a fully equipped commercial kitchen that the vendors installed but have not yet commissioned. In addition, there is a 250,000 litre water storage capacity in five tanks that is filled by town water. 

The vendor Andrew Burns is an experienced furniture retailer and currently uses the building for his “Andy’s Furniture” business that trades only three days a week. 

The growth of Phillip Island as a tourist hotspot, the Wilsons Prom natural attractions plus a significant number of passing vehicles throw open opportunities for future uses for the building.

Cullen says potential uses might be for retail such as local food and produce, equine supplies, fishing or boating services, even a supermarket or church as the choices for the purchaser are endless. 

The site has Special Use zoning.

“Given the growth forecasts for this part of regional Victoria with its prominent main road frontage and a home and industrial or retaiI building I am sure that the lifestyle and business opportunity here will be well recognised,” says Cullen.
