Freehold & Business with great return on investment

An iconic landmark in the picturesque Hills' township of Emerald. This characterful double-story weatherboard with 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms is one of the few original buildings and dates back to circa 1900 when it was home to Constable Lawrence Fleming.

Lovingly restored & improved by the current owners, it is now a thriving business that generates a handsome income by offering boutique accommodation (and a taste of a bygone era) to visitors of the Dandenong Ranges, Puffing Billy & Emerald Lake Park with its paddle boats, cafe, picnic areas, fishing and walking trails.

Made up of multiple suites each with own kitchen area, living, bedrooms, private bathroom and veranda, the house has variable accommodation configurations. The gardens are beautifully maintained and stocked with all manner of cottage garden plants including a climbing wisteria bursting with plump lavender blooms in the spring months.

A large open parking area can accommodate ample guest vehicles.

The Opportunities
