Rose Cottage site for sale with separate block for service station opportunity

The historic Rose Cottage site in Gilmore is being subdivided for sale as a going concern and development opportunity for an adjacent service station and fast food outlet.

Originally part of Andre Cunningham’s Tuggeranong Station, the 3ha site on the corner of the Monaro Highway and Isabella Road consists of the Old Rose Inn, including two existing heritage buildings and grassed and landscaped areas, along with other substantial infrastructure such as internal roads and services.

The property is in the process of being subdivided into two parcels, with the Rose Cottage business owners continuing their tenancy on Block A and and Block B being able to be developed as a service station and fast food outlet.

Director of Luton Properties Tuggeranong, Christine Bassingthwaighte, said it was a golden opportunity for someone who wanted to develop that land into a service station.

“When you look at what is available in the Tuggeranong Valley there certainly is a need for an extra service station because there is not too many on that side of the road, especially when heading up to the snow or coming back from Sydney,” she said.

“Rose Cottage is quite a viable business, they can have the benefit of that as well.”

Ms Bassingthwaighte said the land would suit someone who could see the potential of the Valley, which was growing.

She had already fielded many inquiries from interstate investors who specialise in developing service station sites.

The owner would also consider a proposal for any service centre development to be leased from him.

The land is being offered for sale by private negotiation and there is no price guide.

It is not the first time a service station has been proposed for the site with development plans lodged in 1989 for dual service centres and a bridge over the highway.

Interested parties can contact Ms Bassingthwaighte on 0428 139 969 or via email: christine.bassingthwaighte@luton.com.au

There is already a petrol station literally one block away at the Chisholm shops! Wow it will be so much fun sitting in the picturesque gardens at Rose enjoying the petrol fumes and trucks on the doorstep

Petrol stations are a dying breed. With the arrival of more electric cars in the next 5-10 years this is a very short sighted move. And as others have said before "Who needs more fast food outlets?"

10:50 pm 02 Feb 18

The last thing we need is more fast food outlets! 😠

That's the ALP right wing for you. We need to ask questions about the way community is going to be done over by changes to thecharges of provision of facilities to Downer Community Centre.

They've already got a great pub and cafe there. Don't need more food.

9:44 pm 02 Feb 18

Bit more competition for the service station at Hume should be great. During snow season Hume Woolies BP is cheaper than my local but in summer it’s much more expensive.

Actually its the Tennant who wants to split the block for financial gain....

I'm guessing the businesses are struggling to survive at Rose Cottage. I've seen it busy there, but usually its fairly quiet when I've been. Now if they get an independent servo on the site, then that may attract people there, but we don't need another woolies or coles based servo.

As long as the pub is still there, which is the plan, great news.

8:51 pm 02 Feb 18

Why can't they just leave things alone? Every piece of land is being sold off. There is less and less spots to go to that isn't developed.

8:47 pm 02 Feb 18

Main part remains which is good. The key will be the design now.

8:43 pm 02 Feb 18

Is nothing sacred?

8:42 pm 02 Feb 18

If they build it I won’t use it out of principle.

8:39 pm 02 Feb 18

Makes sense. Perfect location.

8:34 pm 02 Feb 18

Rose cottage sell food? Why would they want a fast food place?

Servo not far in both directions! Hopefully something useful goes there... who am I kidding.. 😕

8:32 pm 02 Feb 18

Seems pointless..

8:29 pm 02 Feb 18

As if we need another service station and fast food outlet 500 metres from existing ones.......

8:27 pm 02 Feb 18

Well. That sucks!

8:20 pm 02 Feb 18

When will canberra reconise its history and beauty and stop destroying it

8:16 pm 02 Feb 18

What a shame
