There’s nothing like a winter fireside drink in a cosy pub – except maybe a second drink. That’s what a welcoming ambience can do.
And that’s what the Fireside Inn in the heart of Goulburn’s historic precinct has in spades.
The Tudor-influenced design is bristling with timber floors, beams and fireplaces and has faithfully recreated the feel of an English pub.
But the Fireside Inn has its own history, built in 1934 by a local merchant.
There’s restaurant seating for 75 people, including large open tables and intimate window and alcove booths. That’s all serviced by a bar, commercial kitchen, walk-in cold room and plenty of storage.
Upstairs, there are two apartments – one with two bedrooms and the other with three. There’s an option to rent out both or live in one or both.
Outside are a large rear deck and three brick garages with rear lane access.
There’s another space at the front of the building that could be leased as a cafe with bonus al fresco seating.
Carol James of Carol James Real Estate says locals are looking forward to the historic inn reopening under new ownership.
“It’s a much-loved part of the local landscape, and you couldn’t get a better location in Goulburn,” she says.
“This would be a great opportunity for someone with hospitality experience looking for a lifestyle change.”
