In­ter­est brew­ing in Caul­dron

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Stage -

THE build­ing that housed Subiaco icon the Witch’s Caul­dron will be auc­tioned this month.

The Fed­er­a­tion-style build­ing at 87-89 Rokeby Road has been listed on Ca­porn Young’s web­site, of­fer­ing 1000sq m of in­ter­nal space over mul­ti­ple lev­els and dual frontage on Rokeby Road and Row­land Street.

Ca­porn Young as­so­ciate di­rec­tor Phil Hayes said the prop­erty was at the prime end of Rokeby Road and of­fered an ex­cit­ing space for some­one with vi­sion.

“It’s the first time the prop­erty’s been of­fered in al­most 50 years and I think a lot of peo­ple have got quite a soft spot for the Witch’s,” he said.

“We’re sell­ing it vir­tu­ally walk-in walk­out. You could go in and run it as it is, but I won­der whether some­one might look at some­thing com­pletely dif­fer­ent and re­con­fig­ure ar­eas to have mul­ti­ple hos­pi­tal­ity busi­nesses co-ex­ist­ing.”

Witch’s Caul­dron own­ers Ge­off and Ta­nis Gosling said in March the clo­sure was not a fi­nan­cial de­ci­sion; rather, they had de­cided it was time to shut up shop.

“We felt now was the right time to say good­bye,” Mrs Gosling said at the time.

The auc­tion will be held on June 28 in Fre­man­tle.
