Beautifully restored and renovated to its former glory, The Old Shipping Office will appeal to a wide range of buyers due the flexibility around its commercial zoning. This allows activities from restaurants and cafes, retail shops and offices through to residential living and guest accommodation which it is currently used for as part of the Akaroa Village Inn rental pool.

First build in 1895 and designed by architectural firm Collins and Harman for the Union Steam Ship company as their Akaroa office and since then it has enjoyed a rich history and has been one of the most admired building in Akaroa. It is now registered as a heritage building, category 2 and won an award in 2012 for its restoration.

The ornate Victorian Facade is built from timber to simulate stone provide an entrance way like no other. Once inside the 82sqm living space includes two large double bedrooms each with their own hand basin, bathroom with spa bath and shower, spacious open-plan living area with feature exposed brick wall, decorative fireplace surrounds and an old iron safe door. A kitchenette flows on from the living and opens to the private back yard and BBQ area. There is off-street parking for two vehicles which provides options for further development depending on your use requirements.

The location could not be better given its close proximity to the wharf where an expected 200,000 cruise ship passengers will be accessing Akaroa and all the shops, cafes and restaurants already established in this area.

Whether you are looking for a home, holiday home or have business ambitions that would suit a thriving seaside community then make sure you take the time to view this little gem.
