You won’t break the bank to buy this charming old building but you will get your own original bank vaults and counters – along with a historic home to live in and a place to run a business.

On the market for $575,000, the grand former bank at 77 Main Street, Grenfell, has been partially restored and is full of light and character.

Built in 1894, the building operated as a bank from 1974 to 2016 and boasts beautiful heritage features as well as the potential for a range of future uses.

“This beautiful building is crying out for someone to give it a new lease on life – a BnB, homewares store, restaurant, art gallery, office space and residence,” said listing agent Sheryl Hinde of Clive J Anderson & Co.

Ms Hinde said the former bank is 2.5 hours’ drive from Canberra and offers a great opportunity to run a commercial operation and live in the residence.

The former bank building comes with a new kitchen, original polished floorboards, freshly-painted rooms upstairs and five bedrooms – with original fireplaces in four of the bedrooms.

“The commercial office has the original bank vaults and counters,” Ms Hinde said.

“The rear yard features the original stables with cobblestone floors, along with a lockable single garage with loft.”
