Antipasto might still be served inside the former Ferla Social Club.

A catering business has found its new base inside the former Ferla Social Club.

The reception centre and hall at 218 Sydney Rd, Coburg sold last week for between $1.2-$1.3 million.

Melbourne Commercial Group agent Domenic Dastoli said the 582sq m property attracted interest mostly from owner occupiers.

The home of the former Ferla Social Club.

Regular functions were held inside the hall.

“Interested parties included a guy who wanted to run a music hall as well as a community for the elderly,” Mr Dastoli said.

“Some developers also looked at it, but because it doesn’t have much frontage they weren’t really interested.

“There were a few boxes it didn’t tick.”

For many years the social club held dinner dances and functions inside the 353sq m building.

It featured a commercial kitchen and rear courtyard and was suitable for a range of uses including a gym or training studio, dance studio or a church hall.

Mr Dastoli said the eventual buyer was in the food game.

The commercial kitchen is perfect for a catering company.

The property sold for between $1.2 million to $1.3 million.

“Whether they convert the building into a place to sit and have a meal, I’m not too sure,” Mr Dastoli said.

The property went to auction in November and passed in before the private sale.

It last sold for $150,000 in July 1996, according to CoreLogic data.
