SNAP up a piece of history as 25 and 27 South Street, York, known as the St Patrick’s Convent building, has hit the market by tender.

The development site is listed on the State Heritage Register and the York Shire’s municipal inventory and was purpose-built in 1873 by the Sisters of Mercy, who operated a primary school.

“The building has transitioned through changes including being utilised as a library, primary school, selling antiques and in 2005, as a restaurant,” said Ray White Commercial WA director Stephen Harrison.

“There is a lot of history here and the lucky buyer will be taking on a property that comprises two separate lots, with a total land holding of about 2659 square metres and a total building footprint of about 320m2.

“Potential buyers will also love that the site comes with flexible town centre zoning that allows for a range of commercial uses, subject to council approval.”

This gracious York landmark offers a commercial kitchen and generous entertainment alfresco, which would be ideal for community and private hire.

The kitchen has a grease trap and cool room, there’s also a large gravel car park and outdoor paved area and it is in the heart of the town centre, surrounded by heritage-rich buildings.

This will appeal to buyers who have a little creativity and nurturing abilities and coupled with its history and charm, this property could be the next iconic Wheatbelt venue.

It’s fair to say this asset is a grand and significant building within the York community and offers an incredible business opportunity that’s seldom offered to the market.
