The proposed floor plan for the revitalization of Dohertys House in Tarneit has been unveiled, marking an exciting step towards its transformation into a bustling hub for families in the area. Located at 1 Sapling Boulevard, Dohertys House is listed in the Wyndham Planning Scheme and encompasses the house, stone walls, and the immediate surroundings.
The ambitious project aims to turn the historic bluestone ruin into an iconic establishment that will cater to the needs and desires of the Tarneit community. The envisioned plan includes the creation of a 50-seat café, accompanied by an outdoor dining area with an additional 50 seats, providing ample space for visitors to enjoy their meals and experience a true sense of neighborhood living.
