It’s a golden opportunity for buyers. A former gold mine turned into a unique home in Taradale in Central Victoria is for sale.

And with the price set at $1 million, it could also be a golden opportunity for local property as it is set to be a record sale price for the suburb, just 10 minutes outside Castlemaine.

The amazing restoration of the old Phoenix Mine, at 16 Back Road, Taradale, has been undertaken by its current owner Tony Kelly, who purchased the property in the mid-1990s.
