BOVELL'S COTTAGE C1882 | A HISTORICAL LANDMARK RIGHT IN THE HEART OF THE CBD
A fantastic opportunity is available to purchase a historical landmark property on two adjoining titles right in the heart of the Central Business District. "Bovell" Cottage sited on Lot 2, was originally built in C.1882 and was the home of Jospeh Bovell, one of the settlers of the south west region and influential in the settlement and development of Busselton. This heritage listed limestone cottage is a fine example of a single storey Victorian Georgian style cottage with the steeply pitched roof, original Sheoak shingles, high decorative ceilings, sweeping hallway with ornate arches, original fireplaces and 5 "period timber floors. The current owners commenced renovation in 1990 with much of the interior retaining a high degree of authenticity. Currently used as office space, with four large consulting rooms, upstairs attic furbished as a board room, small kitchenette and w/c facilities. Regional Centre zoning allows for business and residential use within the special character area of Adelaide Street. Positioned in the CBD, only a short stroll to shops, restaurants, cafes and appro 350m to the stunning blue waters of Geographe Bay, taking in the spectacular views of the Busselton Jetty, newly developed foreshore and Shelter Brewery.

The City of Busselton have included the property within the Adelaide Street Precinct which encourages the development of sites, subject to approvals, with either residential or commercial developments or indeed a mixture of both. The siting of the existing structure allows ample scope for its retention (required) and the addition of either a single large building or a number of free standing structures that could provide retail and office opportunities at ground level and with residential units above at first and second floor level. If aspected to the north, these residential offerings could provide sensational views over the beautiful Busselton foreshore and the sparkling waters of Geographe Bay.
