38 Kuhlmann Road offers an office warehouse of approximately 2,400sq m on a 5,958 square metre site with a street frontage of approximately 66 metres.

According to Peter Isaksson, Director at Savills Australia, “Both properties are located some 5km from the Renmark township, the largest of the Riverland towns and a major SA Regional Centre.

“The area is highly regarded with the cultivation of fruit, vegetables, wheat and wool. In addition, tourism is also an important component of the township.”

Mr Isaksson went on to say both properties offer a five year plus five year right of renewal to The Better Drinks Co Pty Ltd, with leases expiring in February 2033 and October 2027 for 38 Kuhlmann Road and 29 Kernich Street respectively.

“This supports the long term secure nature of the offerings and there is a likelihood of expanding the Kernich Road site which the 4ha land holding can well accommodate.”

Both properties are being offered for sale by Private Treaty combined or separately through Savills Australia, with Expressions of Interest closing 4pm Wednesday 7 August 2019.
