For the first time in more than 40 years, a landmark building occupied by Sydney’s iconic Cafe Hernandez, has hit the market.
Located at 58-60 Kings Cross Road, Rushcutters Bay, the mixed-use commercial/residential property is being offered vacant possession, comprising the cafe/retail space on the ground floor and a residential space on level one.
Cafe Hernandez was first opened in Kings Cross 1972 by Joaquin Hernandez and has been in the current location since 1981.
The property has been held by the same family ever since.
The popular cafe has been privy to a number of famous patrons including Hugh Jackman, Frank Sinatra, and Marcia Hines.
Ray White Commercial South Sydney agent John Skufris and Ray White Elizabeth Bay agent Ian Campbell are marketing the property.
“The property has been a proven retail destination for 50 years,” Mr Skufris said.
“The shop for many years had operated 24 hours.
“Opportunities for shop and residence style properties in and around the city fringe have been limited.
“The property would suit owner-occupiers wanting to live/work close to the city.
“The current owner and family have loved living and working there.”
Mr Campbell said the property was in an excellent location.
“It’s within walking distance to Kings Cross train station, bus stops, and shops,” Mr Campbell said.
“Plus a short walk to Rushcutters Bay, tennis courts, and yacht club.”
The property is being sold via online auction on March 26 at 4pm.
