86 Napier Street St Arnaud is a beautiful Heritage building, rich in history.

The building was constructed with a domestic gothic design in 1889 for the London Charted Bank, by Oakden, Addison and Kemp, a Melbourne architectural firm.

The facility became an ANZ Bank branch – formerly known as the London Chartered Bank – in 1988. Operating as a fully functioning bank, the ground floor includes the large banking chamber with 6 meter high ceilings, vintage vault, managers office and amenities. With an original slate roof in excellent condition, chimneys are to be found in almost every room.

On the first floor, above a magnificent blackwood staircase, you will find the former grand managers residence, consisting of bedrooms, bathroom, lounge room and large boardroom leading out on to the balcony through stained-glass doors. A small set of stairs leads down into servants quarters from when the bank was functioning in the gold rush era.

The land area of 440 square meters, is situated on a corner block in the centre of town, and includes a separate side entrance, off-street parking, an additional outdoor toilet and shedding.

As a prospective owner, or tenant, this beautiful building is a 'creative canvas' with a unique set of features. As a project, or as an investment, it is well worth an inspection.
