The Old Corner Post Office - Circa 1904 Restored Residence
The Old Corner Post Office Korumburra represents one of the best in quality completed restoration projects we've seen in South Gippsland.
Situated on the Korumburra Heritage Trail at the top end of town, the Old Corner Post Office offers a prominent corner locale in Mixed Use zoning and is currently utilised as a permanent residence.
Constructed in 1904, this property blends the very best in architecture by Neil Falconer, with modern day conveniences.
From the moment you enter via the gated picket fence, you will be transfixed with the wonder by the exceptional workmanship from a bygone era. Tesselate tiled verandah, timber lined eaves, large stained glass windows surrounding the heavy set entry doors, all set the scene for a welcome embrace.
This impeccably presented home offers a traditional layout, with good size bedrooms to the front of the home, relaxed living in the heart of it and open kitchen and dining to the rear. The high quality furnishings and fittings, extension, gardens, original outbuilding and external entertaining zones all work together to compliment this period property.
Internally, tasteful renovations ensure the homes original character and period features remain, including lofty ceilings of up to 16’, traditional fire surrounds, original timber floorboards (of approx. 26mm thickness), stained glass windows, feature architraves, ceiling roses and cornicing to name a few.
While sensitive modernisation ensures this historical property also features the best of modern living with a fresh country kitchen, superbly furnished bathrooms, zoned gas ducted heating and secondary split system to the formal living zone.
Easy evenings are to be enjoyed here, with the flexibility of dining in the expansive formal living space, or taking a short meander down the road to the large range of restaurants, bakeries, cafes and takeaways on offer in the main street of Korumburra.
