THE old New Town Post Office building has hit the market for the first time in a decade.

Prominently located on the suburb’s main road, this property includes the original 1891 post office building and a sorting room at the rear dating back to 1920.

Crowther Richards managing director Neville Crowther described the historic New Town Post Office as a wonderful, well presented property.

“It retains its original character, alongside up-to-date commercial infrastructure,” he said.

“There is currently a cafe, an operational bed and breakfast and a multitude of other spaces.

“With its Mixed Use zoning, the property presents an amazing residential and/or commercial opportunity for the astute buyer.”

Known as Assemblage, the upper floor art-themed B&B offers four beautiful, light-filled bedrooms plus bathrooms, a storeroom and a guest kitchen and dining room on the ground level.

The lower ground floor of this building has a storeroom and a double garage.

At the rear of the building is an undercover courtyard area, frequented by cafe customers and guests. There is rear access to the courtyard via a right of way from Valentine St.
