Historic 'Cobb & Co' - A bespoke residential conversion opportunity

Penola – The gateway to South Australia’s famous Coonawarra wine region.  A tourist destination, and idyllic, character filled township with so much to offer. At your doorstep; wineries and cellar doors, cafes, fine dining, art galleries and more.

Located on sought after Riddoch Street, in the historic precinct of Penola, can be found 58 Riddoch Street; The historic 1850’s ‘Cobb & Co’ and The Tregenza Gallery. A throwback to a bygone era. This charming building has a story to tell; Originally the coach booking office and later a cheese and butter factory, tearooms, restaurant and food manufacturing and distribution facility.

What tomorrow holds for Cobb & Co, is up to you.

The history, the buildings, the grounds of Cobb & Co presents as a blank canvas for the discerning buyer seeking a ‘one and only’ place on which to create a bespoke residence (STCA); A one of a kind, rare find that with careful architecture consideration could be worthy of a ‘Grand Designs’ feature.

In the digitally connected world in which we live today, this is an opportunity for a ‘work from home’ professional. ‘The Tregenza Gallery’, a separate stone structure was added in the1920’s. Today, a veranda of generous proportions ties the spaces together. A good link between the ‘office’ and the home perhaps. Alternatively, the gallery would make a generous master suite, if connected to the original building.

Here, in the original structure, two generously sized, interconnected rooms feature stunning original timber floors, ceilings, and windows in excellent condition. Adjoining this, a weatherboard–clad service section, comprising toilet facilities and a recently upgraded commercial kitchen.

The space is versatile and flexible - with multiple spaces at play. In its entirety, a simplistic, practical layout which could suitably house a home.

Cobb & Co is set on a substantial 1,086m2 corner allotment with dual access and plenty of land to make more improvements.

Join the regional movement, experience Penola's vibrant, supportive community. Stunning coastal towns such as Robe (1 hours’ drive away) and the regional centre Mount Gambier (30 minutes’ drive) are easily accessible. Here, the airport connects daily with Melbourne and Adelaide via REX and Qantas Link.

We invite you to explore the possibilities in leveraging every unique attribute of the buildings and grounds to create that ‘one and only’ place as home for any one of a wide range of possibilities.

Rarely does an opportunity this attractive, flexible and with a story to tell present itself.
