POTENETIAL buyers have an incredible opportunity to express interest in a slice of history as 61 Miowera Road, operating as a Girl Guide Training and Outdoor Centre for the past 70 years, hits the market in North Turramurra.
The asset is set on 8ha* of land adjoining the Ku-Ring-Gai National Park. It consists of a main building with commercial kitchen, large meeting area, and dorm style accommodation.
The property is being marketed by Ray White Commercial Western Sydney Managing Director Peter Vines, Director Victor Sheu and Ray White Commercial Metropolitan Sydney Director Sam Hadgelias, alongside advisors Charter Keck Cramer, led by Sam Barrow.
“Land parcels of this size in built-up areas are extremely rare. Due to the Private Recreation zoning, we’re expecting substantial interest from many different groups including education providers, not-for-profits, and other users looking for an indoor and outdoor space in the natural environment close to the city,” Mr Vines said.
“The Girl Guides have very mixed emotions about selling the asset as it has been a huge part of their history and thousands of girls have been through the facility,” Mr Sheu said.
“The Girl Guides have an incredibly rich history in developing young women and the movement has been an integral part in forming many community and business leaders across the world,” Mr Hadgelias said.
CEO Helen White of Girl Guides NSW, ACT and NT, said the Facility had been a tremendous asset to the Girl Guides for many years.
“However, as an organization, we believe that our resources can be used elsewhere to continue to provide a safe space for girls and young women to develop life and leadership skills while instilling a desire to act on issues that they care about, contributing to their communities in locally-based programs for our members,” Ms White said.
