This is an intriguing and versatile business with proven success, great potential and the added bonus of a gorgeous location, just an hour from the coast.
Known for its picturesque scenery, and creative demographic, Balingup is approximately 240km south of Perth, and less than an hour from the coastal city of Bunbury, in the picturesque Blackwood River Valley.
This freehold investment package, on 916sqm, includes 2 successful businesses, plus a comfortable 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom property, with a spacious kitchen and living area, large backyard with rear access, and room to extend.
The Post Office has been in continual operation since 1924, and is an essential service for over 800 people between Donnybrook and Bridgetown - especially being the only banking source in town.
This business enjoys a healthy income stream from its 424 mail boxes, billpay, stationery, gifts, cards, maps, supplies, phone recharges, fax and copy service, and is an agent for TransWA bus and train ticketing, Toll Ipec and Startrack courier services.
The Post House is located at the rear of the post office and offers low cost, hostel-style accommodation. Registered for 9 guests, it attracts a wide range of clientele from local and international hikers walking the Bibbulmun Track, to weekend visitors and seasonal workers.
A new owner might choose to:
• Expand and develop the post office retail area beyond the standard products
• Expand the parcel delivery area into a regional large item depot
• Expand the accommodation business - or turn it back into a lovely family home
These businesses complement each other and deliver the best of all worlds - the friendliness of a small community, the variety of national and international visitors, picturesque countryside, and easy access to the beach! Perfect!
