A RARE piece of south-west history could be yours for less than $1 million.
The Presbytery in Koroit, circa 1800, is on the market and is expected to fetch between $800,000 and $900,000.
Brian O’Halloran and Co principal Brian Hancock said The Presbytery was being offered through expressions of interest.
He said it was a magnificent building which had eight rooms that could be used as bedrooms, making it perfect for a bed and breakfast operation or a large home.
“It’s in a fairly original condition, which allows someone to put their own touch on it,” Mr Hancock said.
The gothic two-storey sandstone building boasts an impressive 603-square-metres of living set on a 4900-square-metre allotment.
“It has a beautiful outlook over the grounds and it’s very affordable,” Mr Hancock said.
“It just needs some refurbishment in different places.”
Mr Hancock said there had been a lot of interest in the property, with inquiries from all across the state.
The Presbytery also has a veranda and balcony with intricate lacework and cast iron posts.
It has an additional six car garage and workshop area, a bitumen paved driveway and carpark.
“This is a superb historic stone building incorporating stain glassed entry door, five to eight possible bedrooms, four bathrooms, ground floor kitchen plus utility rooms on a magnificent block,” Mr Hancock said.
Expressions of interest will be accepted until 4pm on Thursday, April 26.
