Portland's Annesley House remains listed

Portland's Annesley House remains listed

The iconic Annesley House on Julia Street in Victoria’s Portland remains listed for sale with its $1.29 million asking price.

The restored two-storey residence acts as a self-contained accommodation business, with seven fully furnished apartments.

Annesley House was built in 1878 for Dr Brewer – the chief medical officer and then mayor of Portland – who not only used the house as a surgery, but lived onsite, too.

Located on 1,344 square metres, the restored house sits midway between Melbourne and Adelaide, on the western end of The Great Ocean Road.

In the early 1900s, the Wadmore sisters took over Annesley House from Dr Brewer and turned it into a guesthouse.

The honeymoon suite in the house is named after the sisters.

In the 1940s, the property was passed to Mrs Luers, who owned the property until 2004, when the current owner, Mark Robinson, bought it.

The property has an established income stream, with apartments available to book from $150 to $210 a night.

Property Observer initially wrote of its listing last October.

It is listed by Nick Adamson at Charles Stewart Warrnambool.
