Prime Main Street Shop and Large Residence For Sale
Macleans popularity is soaring and there is an opportunity now for someone wishing to acquire a rare main street commercial property, with a 2 storey, 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom large residence, for their own use, or investment.
Maclean has had a long healthy history of prime commercial real estate in great positions. Eklektika run by current owner Nicki Holmes, has brought this iconic Maclean building back to life and it’s now ready for creative buyers. Will it be a garden cafe with separate residence, continue as a retail shop, or could you be the investor looking for a healthy return for your portfolio?
History and current usability:
This brick terrace of four shops was built for John Cameron as a business venture. The shops were below, and living quarters above. Harry Blair, who was already operating as a hairdresser, moved into the shop in August 1912. He and his wife rented the premises until the Cameron Estate was sold and Mrs. Blair bought the freehold. Harry died in 1932 but his wife continued the business assisted first by son Lance and then son Ken. Ken and his wife lived above the shop until they retired to Brooms Head. Their son John and his wife Margaret then ran the business until it went to tender in 2007. So, three generations of Blair’s ran the barber, sports goods shop.
This iconic building was bought at the end of 2007 by Nicki Holmes, who had previously owned a restaurant in Sydney’s Potts Point, and for many years, the successful Chatsworth Island Restaurant just north of Maclean. She uses the building as her residence and shop, Eklektika, selling an eclectic range of anything she likes, antiques, vintage, retro and contemporary items.
Because of her background, when she renovated the house and garden, she had in mind the perfect cafe or restaurant. The present shop, new verandah room, small dining room, large timber deck, brick paved courtyard and the large Council car park, make this an ideal prospect, or the buyer of this Commercial property can just live, as she has, in a beautiful residence and garden right in town, with a main street shop to occupy or lease out.
