Wonderful lifestyle property
Steeped in history, the original building at 45 Holmes St, Moama, was constructed in 1867 and was known as The Vine Hotel, only the second hotel built in the area. The name was chosen because there was a large grape vine growing at the property. It was a popular hotel and attracted many patrons due to the illegal horse racing which was done on the property behind the hotel. The activity continued for years even though many warnings were issued by authorities, however, the publican believed there was more money in the racing and could comfortably cover any fines. The hotel was delicensed and became a boarding house for locals and returned service men before it burnt down in the late 1940s. This has made way for a wonderful lifestyle property which consists of a renovated three-bedroom home with new kitchen, bathroom and more. A two-bedroom, selfcontained unit with separate bathroom and toilet, would be a wonderful place for elderly parents, teenagers or visitors. The in-ground, solar-heated fiberglass pool and yard is next to the large games room, which can be opened up into an indoor/outdoor area, a great place for entertaining guests or parties and also offers a large study/office. The features at the property continues with a 20m by 8m shed with 6m clearance. Set on a generous 5.3ha in two titles and 1.2km from Moama Bowling Club, the property would suit many buyers, including farmers moving to town, retirees, young families, horse lovers or buyers just looking for lifestyle close to town. To top the property off, there is future potential for sub division, which is subject to approval from council. The property is open for inspection tomorrow from 11am to 11.30am and, if not sold before, will be auctioned on Saturday, December 3, at 11am.
