A rundown milk bar in one of Melbourne's most sought-after suburbs has been transformed from an eyesore with no heating and chipped brown paint into an elegant three-bedroom family home.

The now luxurious three-level property in Richmond has been passed down through generations of the Lyster family, who originally built the humble shop selling newspapers and milkshakes in 1884.  

Jen Lyster was the last family member to live inside 43 Bendigo Street before selling it to property developer Ben Reid in 2009.

It didn't take Mr Reid long to see the potential in the building, which now has stunning 180-degree views of Melbourne's cityscape, a freestanding bath and open plan living and dining area a little over a decade later.
