Home With Big Council Apprioved Gallery In Gallery WalkIt really is a rare opportunity to find a vacant property that provides both home and business premises in Gallery Walk as the majority of the buildings here are now all fully commercial with no living facilities. This recently vacated property has functioned for many years as gallery and is approved for that purpose by the Scenic Rim Shire Council. It does offer possible alternative uses such as a restaurant or cafe, although Council approval would need to be sought and a proper commercial kitchen would need to be installed. The positioning of the large open deck next to the main gallery area would provide ample space for a large number of diners when both indoor and outdoor space were in use.
It consists of a huge open area on the lower level plus decent sized kitchen, ensuite style bathroom, powder room and verandahs plus the big northerly facing deck and has level access from the car park to the gallery for older and disabled folk. The upper level is a very spacious 2 bedroom apartment with living area and extra large full bathroom plus covered decks on all 4 sides. Sharply raked ceilings and ranch sliders opening to each deck provide ample natural light and great breezeways in summer time.
Solid timber internal stairs, polished hardwood floors and some areas of high raked ceilings as well as the multi-fold sold timber and glass front doors do create quite an unusual and interesting ambience on the lower level, quite unlike the classic shop style of the recently constructed commercial buildings along Gallery Walk. The multitude of full commercial spot lighting already in place suggests that everything is ready for buyers to walk-in, set-up and get down to the business of making a decent living without the need to drive home every night.
Gallery Walk has the highest number of tourists of any Hinterland area outside of the Gold Coast or Sunshine Coast. The through road captures and funnels travellers from both Brisbane and all areas of the Gold Coast past the businesses here and there is also a huge amount of bus tourism as well. Many local residents pass through this area every day too. The latter group are indeed good customers, as many established businesses there can attest. Locals come for shopping, breakfast, lunch and dinner, as we all go to the cafes and restaurants there. It is simply a way of life in this part of the World. There is also a huge market in accommodation tourism on Mount Tamborine where much of it is Bed & Breakfast style. This sends people staying here for weekends and longer stays down to Gallery Walk seeking food and other items of interest.
So if you have been thinking about getting into the tourist trade on Tamborine Mountain, it is time to stop thinking and start looking at the best position available with living facilities and the space to let you create that special business that has been tempting you to take action for some time!
