Built in the early 1860s, this historically significant and well-preserved Georgian-style home occupies 2 titles on 1238 sqm (approx.). The oldest continually occupied house in the Mornington township, the property is being offered for the first time in 30 years as two separate titles, or in its entirety. The second lot has two street frontages and both lots lend themselves to further subdivision (STCA). Illustrious owners have included Mornington Lord Mayor and environmentalist, Robert Nunn and noted University of Melbourne botanist, David Angus. There are fireplaces in the dining and lounge rooms as well as the 2 larger of 3 bedrooms where high pressed metal ceilings overlook solid Baltic timber floors. The kitchen is anchored by a fifth fireplace, or hearth, that heats the bathroom on cooler days. A summer room overlooks the expansive gardens where a 70-year old mulberry tree and soaring centenarian pine gently shade the uncomplicated garden on the corner of Nelson Street. Hand-made bricks line the pathways with an original roof of Cornish slate adding gravitas to a property that occupies an enviable position about 350m to Fisherman's Beach. This property represents a rare opportunity to become custodians of a legacy where the option to customise and build is merely another chapter in the evolving story of our nation.
