Iconic building in Puhoi
- Proposed Usage
- Property ID
Within Puhoi township there are a handful of historic and iconic buildings with the two most recognised being the Puhoi Pub and the neighbouring Puhoi General Store.
For the first time in almost 15 years the General Store is now for sale. Directly across the road from the Puhoi River the 1343m2 property contains the original historic store, a new store extension, a retail shop, a real estate office, and a 4 bedroom house.
The General Store services the local Puhoi population, as well as many tourists and passing traffic, providing groceries, coffee, postal and couriers services, sandwiches, cakes, pies, and oysters and fish and chips. As well as the freehold property the business is for also available for sale as a going concern if desired.
The extension to the general store, built within the last few years, is currently used as additional retail space but is ideally suited to a cafe setup and expnaded hospitality option. Another opportunity maybe a boutique or specialty bar.
Attached to the extension is a small office currently tenanted by Mike Pero Real Estate, and an older retail shop tenanted by a local craft business.
The existing owners currently live in the house, also built in the last few years, whilst running the store, with approximately $25,000pa additional passive income stream from the office and retail tenancies.
Opportunity exists for a new owner to take the property and business as a well-established, profitable going concern and home, or to purchase as a freehold only, with the current owner taking a lease and continuing to run the business
Seldom do historic properties such as this come to the market, and as one of the only commercial premises in Puhoi, offering a wide range of services and future options, this property is a very special prospect.
