A piece of St Leonards history is up for grabs through Neville Richards Real Estate, who have been given the job to sell the old St Leonards Post Office, which has been meticulously transformed into a unique abode that resonates modern coastal living though a brilliant merge of old and new.
Having won a HIA award for the best renovation in Victoria, 1350 Murradoc Road is a stunning residence that simply must be seen to be believed.
The original façade component of this property was first built in the early 1920’s as the former St Leonards Post Office and incorporated a post office and residence on the foreshore above the pier.
In June 1939, the post office was relocated to its present site in Murradoc Road with a new section being added to accommodate the postal services.
The Corrigan family operated the postal services on both sites for more than 25 years before it became a residence.
Neville Richards director Luke Campbell said this was a beautiful home that is unique in terms of both design and construction.
“The renovation is a credit to both the vendors and their builder, Coastyle Building Solutions, who have done an amazing job transforming this property into a modern masterpiece that also retains the original façade, preserving a little piece of the town’s history.
“This is a very rare opportunity to invest in a piece of St Leonards history and live or holiday in a home that has everything.”
