Seaview House at 86 Hesse St, Queenscliff, features a funky internal colour scheme.

The dining room could be converted to a restaurant.

Guests can retreat to the property’s private outdoor entertaining area.

Fletchers agent James Gladman said the property, built in 1875 and lovingly updated to preserve its heritage character, had space to live and run a business, making it a great lifestyle opportunity.

“It has been a guesthouse, it’s probably more trading as group accommodation at the moment. People basically book out the whole residence, they book it for golf trips, hens nights, birthdays and weddings,” Mr Gladman said.

“It’s pretty rare and that’s why it’s so popular.”

Situated in the seaside town’s main street, the property is situated close to restaurants, bars, a book shop, art galleries and other retailers.

Stained glass windows are a feature and the property’s furniture can also be included in the sale by negotiation.

Seaview House has its own gallery tucked to the side of the building and Mr Gladman said the world was the new buyer’s oyster in terms of what business they chose to run out of it next.

“There’s heaps of opportunity there for whatever the buyer wants to do,” he said.

“You’d be enjoying the Queenscliff lifestyle and making money off it.”

Seaview’s 15 bedrooms can accommodate up to 35 guests.

Behind the heritage facade lies an expansive floorplan with a sitting room, office, corner shop and a large dining room.

There’s also a fully equipped industrial kitchen with a cool room and storage, a bar, cellar and private outdoor entertaining zone.

A fully equipped commercial kitchen can service a restaurant or a cafe.

A central lounge room flows out to a balcony with an eye-catching elaborate wrought iron balustrade that offers a bird’s eye view of the street below.

Upstairs each of the freshly painted bedrooms can accommodate up to 35 guests and include televisions, fans, and period furniture, all of which can be negotiated as inclusions as part of the sale.

Enjoy a bird’s eye view of Queenscliff’s main drag from the ornate upstairs balcony.

Stained glass windows, retro ‘70s wallpaper and rustic cosy fireplaces add to the property’s classic appeal.

A top Queenscliff spot.
