Queenscliff Victorian house Mount Nagle sold by Presentation nuns

Mount Nagle, the landmark 1870 Queenscliff property, has been sold.

It was listed by the Presentation Sisters Victoria. The property sold within two weeks for $1.1 million to a Melbourne buyer wanting to relocate.

Set on an 1,840-square-metre elevated block, it comes with glimpses of Swan Bay.

The Victorian-era building was marketed by Rendina Kensington agent Charles Bongiovanni as offering “unlimited scope for improvement”.

“One of the most significant historical buildings in Queenscliff and used as a summer house by eminent Victorians during the early 20th century, this remarkable property has been superbly maintained for more than a century,” Bongiovanni says.

“Many period features remain and the property comprises of 15 bedrooms, two bathrooms, four living areas, plus kitchen with adjoining dining room and cellar,” Bongiovanni says.

The Queen Street building is currently used as a private guest house retreat, 100 kilometres from Melbourne.

Some $1.75 million plus had been sought when local agents first listed it in 2010.
