Old flour mill up for sale

A SLICE of Maryborough's history is up for sale, with the owners of the old Dominion Flour Mill looking for the right person to take the unique property off their hands.

Maryborough couple Paddy and Coral Stephenson have owned the building since 1990, when they bought it to house their second-hand goods dealership, Bowerbird House.

But recently, it has gone unused and the Stephensons are looking to sell it and put their feet up.

Mr Stephenson, 73, said the mill was built in the 1890s on the 7085sq m Kent St property.

"It's ideally suited for units," he said.

"It is in a great location.

"It's got the lovely rose garden across the road and a bus stop outside.

"One chap wanted to create a music museum here about three years ago.

"He went to the council at the time, but the restrictions they put on him were just ridiculous.

"It would've been great but it was going to cost him millions of dollars."

Interested buyers should note: there is a catch.

Whoever takes on the property will have to keep the old stone archway.

"We'd stipulate that the archway remain and I'm sure any buyer would agree," Mr Stephenson said.

"You'd be surprised at how many people come and take photos of that."
