One Glenelg East property is revving up prospective buyers on the hunt for a large landholding in a premium suburb.

From residential developers and business owners to those looking for the perfect spot to store their luxury cars, selling agent Josh Morrison said the retro mechanic workshop Hawkes Garage at 2 Cliff Street was attracting strong interest.

“I’ve had interest from people who want to turn it into a coffee roasting (business) and I’ve also got really strong interest from a luxury car collector,” he said.

Its large footprint and premium location are attracting prospective buyers. Pic:

“It’s been pretty popular.”

Mr Morrison, of Magain Real Estate, said the owner has worked at the garage, which also used to be a petrol station, for decades.

“He’s owned it for about 25 years and he worked for it before that,” he said.

“There are not many of those old petrol stations left.”

The garage includes an airconditioned office, open workshop floor and expansive hardstand, while there is also a shed and parking on the 1308sqm site.

The site’s desirable location close to the beach, its position across the road from Scotty’s Corner shopping centre and several schools, as well as its large footprint, made it so popular among househunters, Mr Morrison said.

The property is being sold without a price tag.
