The Hamer family's Queens Road, Melbourne, Sky apartment listed

The Melbourne apartment of the late businessman Alan Hamer and his late wife, Margaret, has been listed for December 8 auction through Marshall White.

The apartment comes with views across Albert Park golf course and lake towards Port Phillip Bay.

There is a spacious living/dining room with surrounding balcony, well-equipped kitchen, plus three bedrooms including main with marble ensuite and second bathroom.

More than $1 million is tipped by Mary Dowling at Marshall White.

Located at 10a/29 Queens Road Melbourne, the apartment is in the Sky building.  

Another apartment on level 10 of the Sky building was listed for sale in 2007 for $725,000. It had three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Hamer, who passed away age 94 in July this year, met his wife, Margaret Angas, in 1947 while working in a chemical plant at Botany Bay. Margaret, the first woman in Australia to graduate as an aeronautical engineer, died seven weeks before him.

Alan Hamer, the brother of former premier Rupert Hamer, was a prominent Melbourne businessman, whose directorships included ICI, Tubemakers of Australia Ltd, and Reckitt and Colman Australia. He was also president of the Melbourne Club.

He also farmed cattle in Queensland and Victoria.
