Commanding its position within a striking period landscape in the very heart of the city is this stunning commercial property and family residence. With approval of both residential and commercial titles, this unique building was built in 1925 and was originally the offices of T&G Mutual Life Assurance, a company that was renowned for its stunning buildings. Once the tallest building in the city, the expansive roof terrace offers unparalleled 360-degree views across Bendigo.
The ground floor is home to the commercial aspect of the building and a quality existing tenant has utilised the sensational open plan space. A rear terrace offers a private outside area on this level and leads up to the rear garden of the home if required.
The property has secure access from both the storefront, and from the rear of the home. A light-filled stairwell leads up one side of the property, with two bedrooms on the first floor (one currently serving as a home office with custom-built cabinetry, and the other with a modern ensuite) and an additional two bedrooms can be found on the second floor. The spacious master includes his and hers walk-in robes and his and hers dressing rooms, and the contemporary ensuite is light and bright. A third bathroom can be found on the first floor – ideal for guests – along with a mudroom and spacious laundry.
The first floor also features a formal dining space, and a spacious open plan kitchen, dining and living room. This fantastic area includes high-end custom cabinetry, a bar section with wine rack, drink fridge and separate sink, and commercial quality appliances.
