Bank for your buck

Back

Facade

An hour from the ACT, in the NSW town of Galong, sits this former Bank of NSW building complete with some of its original features – including the vault!

Set on a double, 2,946sqm block, the house is double brick and heritage-listed, and LJ Hooker Gungahlin sales and marketing consultant Naish Stormon says it would make an “exceptional family home and a perfect retreat from the world”.

“It’s also suitable for professionals and/or executives who are able to work from home at least some of the time and could also suit retirees looking for peace and quiet away from the city.”

Entry

While the home requires some renovation work, it was re-wired and re-plumbed only 12 years ago, and enjoys a renovated, terracotta tile roof and internet access.

Perfect for winter, four wood fireplaces provide all the warmth you’ll need, and the home’s double-brick construction ensures it’s cool in summer.

Set to one side of the block, the outdoor areas is maximised and boasts lush, green grass, trees and the flexibility of space.

Dining

“It’s a wonderful opportunity to own a substantial, historical home in a serene village setting in the superb Hilltops region of NSW,” says Mr Stormon.

“Galong is surrounded by towns like Boorowa, Young, Binalong and Harden all of which are vibrant country centres. Galong abounds in structures of historical significance including the walled cemetery and St Clement’s retreat and conference centre.”
