The Kongwak Butter and Cheese Factory Circa 1925 (1941) is part of the South Gippsland story serving the vital dairy industry for the region. It holds important historical value for the township and provides an essential platform as part of the reinvigoration of the area as a destination.
The classic industrial facade of the Kongwak Butter Factory with its clerestory gable roof sits proudly with main street frontage while the land adjoins the pretty Foster Creek providing an extremely beautiful backdrop complemented by the iconic rolling hills.
The Butter Factory has been renovated to include a substantial and extremely comfortable residence while additional upgrading delivers spaces and facilities with a current permit for cafe, providore, hotel style accommodation (plans available) and ample on site parking.
The self-contained private residence would be ideal for an owner operator and enjoys a brilliant and expansive open plan living and dining with a large quality kitchen. The main suite is bathed in northern sun while the additional two bedrooms are serviced by a central bathroom.
The designated cafe area maintains wonderful character features with excellent entry and flow to rear north facing terrace and grounds leading to the creek reserve. This space is ready for fit-out to your desired needs while offering many flexible options.
The Kongwak Butter Factory is ready for its next reincarnation and here lies an exciting opportunity to make a bold statement, be creative and use vision to complete the rejuvenation of this substantial building the attraction for many. 10 minutes to the Bass Coast and Inverloch and similar to the South Gippsland centres of Wonthaggi and Korumburra and only 1hr:45mins to Melbourne.
