Prominent location – Commercial 2 zone

5221 Princes Hwy, NEWMERELLA


When location matters! Highway frontage, on a half acre (2047m2) of land, and Commercial 2 zoning, makes this property an ideal location to run a commercial business. Plenty of room to build a large shed and office (STCA). There is a three bedroom home located on the land, so you can run a home business or rent the property out for an extra income stream. There is also potential to sub-divide the block (STCA).

The home has been renovated with colorbond cladding on the outside and pine lined ceilings inside. The lounge has a free standing wood heater and reverse cycle air-conditioner. There is an additional room out the back with another wood heater which could be used as a fourth bedroom or family room. Off this is another covered area with a concrete floor which could also be used as a carport or outdoor entertainment area.

Situated across the road is the Newmerella Recreational Reserve and Show Grounds, which hosts the Orbost Pony Club, Annual Orbost Agricultural Show (which last year starred the fabulous Costa from Gardening Australia) and equestrian events. The East Gippsland Rail Trail passes behind the property and is a popular cycling route running from Bairnsdale through forests and farmland into Orbost. Newmerella is a small community with a primary school, service station with post office and takeaway food. You can enjoy the very best of country lifestyle with the convenience of being just a short drive to Orbost Secondary College, Orbost Regional Hospital, shops, banks, cafes, supermarkets and additional sporting facilities.

The property has a rural outlook and not far from the coast, being only fifteen kilometres to the Corringle Slips Foreshore Reserve on the lower Snowy River Estuary. Here you can launch the boat into the estuary system via the historical hundred-year-old boat ramp, chase the bream that the Snowy is famous for, and admire the birdlife. Corringle Slips also has plenty of tracks across the sand dunes to the mighty Southern Ocean, perfect for catching a wave or try some surf fishing. Take a river drive from Newerella along the Snowy River to the coastal town of Marlo for more water activities and a great pub meal at the Marlo Hotel.
