Whether you seek a unique home, holiday home, or interesting business, 7 Gundaroo Street in Gunning, is waiting for you to realise its potential.

Located in the picturesque, historic village of Gunning with plenty of friendly locals to share their stories with you, it won’t be long until you discover that this was once the local Catholic Primary School school house.

Built around 1910, the Greystone and brick construction provides plenty of impressive original features, including pressed metal ceilings, original timber floors, and a floor-to-ceiling room divider with original doors.

Set on two individually titled lots with redevelopment opportunities, the block spans an acre of elevated land within walking distance of the town centre.

McCann Properties real estate agent Ian Blackburn said the old school house was beautifully designed.

“It’s a rather majestic building. The architecture and design of it are truly amazing,” he said.

The extended 6-metre ceiling height provides ample potential for mezzanine-style living, with easy access to the building for ease of construction.

Power and water are connected to the building, with sewerage available along the Gundaroo Street boundary and a small kitchenette with storage and a sink.

This property sits on two separate lots. Lot 1 is where you will find the current structure and Lot 2 is vacant land. This means you have the potential to seek approval to redevelop, potentially creating two 1,000 sqm lots.

Ian said interest in the property has been extraordinary, with serious queries from out of state.

“I’ve had a builder from Victoria call and say he wanted to build some houses on the land. I had a little old lady from Queensland call and let me know she loved the old building on the property and wanted to fix it up into a home. I’ve even had people talk about turning it into a church,” he said.

Located within walking distance to Gunning town centre, you have the best of both worlds: peace and tranquillity of country living and the convenience of being close to town.

The town centre has much to offer with lovely cafes, community services and the local school. There is easy access onto the Hume Highway and a quick commute into Yass, Goulburn, and Canberra for further work and shopping opportunities.

This unique property at 7 Gundaroo Street in Gunning is open for inspection this Saturday (2 July) between 1:15 pm and 1:45 pm. If you’re interested in this property, call Ian on 0411 665 503 and be sure to check out all the hottest listings on Zango.

The schoolhouse shell is very attractive but not easily utilised. The double block sounds wonderful. If you manage to sell the second block, that won’t fund the expenses of the first. Yes, nothing is free but it’s a large investment.
