Be part of history and purchase the home that GJ Coles (of Coles variety stores fame) grew up in. His parents ran the Lake Rowan Post Office and General Store from this home for many years. Later in life, Mr. G.J. Coles opened his very first store in St James. This large 4-5 Bedroom rambling home (circa 1890's) is situated on approx. 1 acre (4,026m2). It has some lovely old features including a cellar and stained glass windows throughout however it is in need of a lot of work and elbow grease to restore it to its original glory. Added extras include a variety of fruit trees, Dam, Rainwater Tanks, Underground well and access to the Tungamah water Pipe Line. Having been used as a holiday retreat for the last 27 years, this would be an ideal holiday home with Yarrawonga & Benalla within less than 25 minutes drive and Wangaratta & Shepparton within 45 minutes drive. This would also be a fabulous opportunity for renovators and energetic first home buyers to enter the property market at this price point.
