Sold $600,000



We introduce to you 62 Napier Street, St Arnaud. The former Colonial Bank, circa late 1870's makes a significant statement to the streetscape along St Arnaud's main street. The building is architecturally significant at a Local Level only, meaning it is not heritage listed.

Our owners have occupied the building for the past 4 years as a residence, and have meticulously renovated the building to another level. The front façade has been entirely restored and painted in 2021, including an original panel door, reintroduced as per original historical photographs, a major project adding great value to the property. Extensive renovations have been carried out throughout the property and the stunning décor / furnishings, fixtures and artwork are all being sold with the property on a walk in/ walk out basis. It's a spectacular renovation and this is all visible from the showcase of photos and video.
