Heritage building has $1.1 million price tag
The heritage-listed Leederville Fire Station building in West Leederville has been sent to market, opening up a rare opportunity for medical specialists and health practitioners looking for premises that will stand out from the crowd.
The two-storey building, located on McCourt Street opposite St John of God Hospital, is being offered for sale with a price tag of over $1 million through Colliers International and Burgess Rawson.
The vendor is McCourt Street Medical, the developer of the newly-completed specialist centre adjoining the property on the corner of McCourt Street and Railway Parade.
Originally constructed in 1926, the brick and tile building operated as the Leederville Fire Station until 1965 and then as a private art gallery until 1979, before being converted to medical consulting rooms. It is being offered for sale with vacant possession.
The landmark building offers a ground floor area of 82sq m, first floor area of 72sq m with a 13sq m balcony and a 25sq m basement. The property also includes two designated car bays, and is zoned for Medical use.
Colliers International Executive Metropolitan Markets Aaron Antonas said the property was expected to draw keen interest.
“With a prime location in the West Leederville/Subiaco medical precinct and a beautiful heritage facade, we’d expect the Fire Station to appeal to specialists seeking consulting rooms that are a little different, a little quirky perhaps, and those who would like to add their own finishing touches,” he said.
“The exterior of the building has been fully restored but the internal space, with high ceilings, is a blank canvas waiting to be transformed.”
Adjoining medical premises have already proved popular with practitioners and allied health services.
Available space in the McCourt Street Medical development, constructed around the old Fire Station and offering specialist medical suites, has been snapped up by occupants including St John of God Pathology, Perth Paediatrics, a rheumatologist, The Liver Centre, The Women’s Centre and other medical consultants.
“The level of demand for premises in this prime health precinct location has been underlined by the response to the McCourt Street Medical development,” said Burgess Rawson Director Brian Neo.
“Add to the equation the fact that this is a landmark historical building, with very close proximity to the West Leederville and Subiaco Square train stations, and we are anticipating very strong enquiry for this asset.”
The Leederville Fire Station at 4 McCourt Street is being offered for sale by Private Treaty with an asking price of $1.1 million plus GST.
