Barnawartha Post Office & Newsagency

Post Office Building – Attached Residence

The Post Office originally built in 1800 still retains the old world charm of the classic general store however the shop and residence have been transformed over the last years and recent renovations have bought it into the 21st century.

The retail area has had approximately 25m2 of flooring strengthened and replaced, 33 new sorting boxes installed along with a service area, new display shelving and carpet replaced.

The three (3) bedroom, two (2) bathroom residence has undergone a major renovation in the last four years with flooring in one bedroom completely replaced, built in wardrobes added to both bedrooms, all doors and door frames replaced with four panel doors and ash frames, new light and electrical, all rooms now connected to the ducted air conditioning, freshly painted in contemporary colours and new carpet installed. The galley kitchen comprises of electric induction hot plates and oven, Fisher Paykel dish draws.

The master bedroom ensuite has been completely remodelled with the addition of a large built in robe, 1200 x 900 shower and timber flooring.

In 2015 the decision was made to convert the two car garage into a fully lined room, epoxy painted floors, sealed in roller doors and with the addition of a dividing wall a 6 x 3.3 meter carpeted study and teenager retreat or man cave has been added to the residence which can easily be converted to a fourth bedroom.

Both shop and residence have evaporated air conditioning and both have gas heating.

Corner site in the centre of Barnawartha, the block is very deep with plenty of space, with lovely lawns, garden outdoor living and has sample shedding with power.

To the right side of the shop, there is an area of opportunity in the future to expand the shop area, making available space for more post office boxes, storage and a wider range of Australia Post Products.
