THE real estate agent’s waiver said it all: “Please note this is a working fire station at the moment. Inspections may be cancelled at short notice.”
And so, forewarned, potential buyers of the old Crib Point fire station in Disney Street, pictured, are making their inspections before it goes to auction for the first time in 50 years on Saturday 13 April.
Harcourts Jason Dowler said the 770 square metre residential zone block offered a “multitude of options”. It has shedding for up to five vehicles, a main building and smaller shed, kitchen and meeting room and bathroom facilities, and a pergola area overlooking a pleasant rear yard.
The property will be sold with vacant possession after the station moves on, offering the buyer the potential to develop the existing shedding or develop the land, subjection to council approvals, and other uses.
“This could be your dream come true or the opportunity you have been waiting for, with such a fantastic location, a generous allotment and residential zoning this property offers prime potential,” Mr Dowler said.
