Historic Penola Home - "St Heliers"

This beautiful and historic stone property is situated in the heart of Penola. It is currently a lovely home – but could also lend itself to a bed and breakfast opportunity for the astute business person.
The original stone cottage was built in the 1860’s for Donald McDonald, who was the local publican, to separate his private life from his business life. In the 1930’s – after undergoing extensive renovations – the home became a private hospital and was named “St Heliers” – before eventually being divided into flats to accommodate emigrant Catholic families.
The present owner purchased the home in 1985, but now believes it is time for a new owner to breath new life into this historic property.
High – and decorative ceilings feature throughout the home, which offers three bedrooms, formal living and dining, a galley style kitchen, a second informal dining area, cellar and large sunroom area.
The formal living area is lovely and large – and has access to one of the two lawned garden areas. This room also has an open fireplace. The formal living adjoins the dining room – which again – has an open fireplace. All bedrooms are large – and share the main bathroom which is huge – and has a bath, toilet and separate shower. A second toilet is in the laundry. The functional galley style kitchen is in the original part of the home and leads through to the informal eating area. This room is heated by way of a slow combustion heater.
A beautiful sunroom on the north eastern side of the home is a perfect retreat for letting the winter sunshine in. A cellar and a small outside workshop complete this unique offering.
St Heliers is a real treasure – with surprises and stories around every corner. Think of the potential! This home is of huge historical significance to Penola and would be a major drawcard for the tourism market – or update and enhance for your own lifestyle (STCC)
