New space to open up for exciting venture
MYRTLEFORD’S 29 Clyde Street could soon be home to the town’s newest business with owner Cameron Rayner looking to lease the building to someone with big plans.
Mr Rayner, who grew up in Bright and now lives in Tamworth, hopes the building which was most recently Reign of Pearls, will again become a popular venue in Myrtleford.
“It is a building with a lot of character,” he said.
“People have got good memories of it and hopefully the next generation will too with whatever is in here in the future.”
Mr Rayner has already met with multiple potential leasers with changes to the area dependent on the business that steps in.
“There’s quite a bit of interest, with lots of different people,” he said.
“It’s more than likely it will be a café or restaurant of some sort with seating making the most of the nice area out the front there.
“I have got probably two or three months’ worth of renovations to do beforehand so it’s not just going to happen overnight.
“I will work with the people (that lease) and hopefully get it up and running.” INTEREST: Cam Rayner is excited by the potential of a new business moving into his Clyde Street purchase.
Mr Rayner said he also hopes to be able to add holiday rentals at the back of the property to make the most of the towns growing tourism.
“Everyone was saying Myrtleford is really going ahead so I’ve just jumped in and I’m looking forward to being a part of the community again,” he said.
“It was a bit of a spur of the moment kind of thing and I have gone with gut feeling after thinking the time was right.”
Ray White sales consultant Allan McGuffie, who listed the property, said he felt the building held one of the best spots in town.
“It looks over the piazza and some of the new streetscape there, you’ve got highway exposure, it’s pretty damn good,” he said.
“The right person has come along who is prepared to do it back up to its old style and retain its character so it’s going to be interesting to see how it goes.
“There are no plans set yet for it as a commercial space so it’s open to all comers really.”
