The outdoor space is fit for rock royalty.


Mr Castles said the property’s ties to rock royalty had intrigued a wide “cross section of buyers” who had plans to either renovate, rebuild or redevelop the elevated 1226sq m block.

“I even had someone ring me whose son has played with INXS who wants to come and look at it,” he said.

“There’s not a lot of homes around with this sort of land component and size in Beaumaris. It has lots of charm and it’s one of those mid-century homes in the area that draws a lot of interest.”

The retro residence was made up of two lots on one title, which made it an “ideal multi-unit development site”.

There’s interest to demolish or update the dated home.


And plenty of room for a development.


But Mr Castles said the house did “offer enough” that someone could save it from being knocked over.

Its existing northern-orientation, study, library, Baltic pine and sandstone kitchen, plus the large backyard garden and double-auto garage were additional drawcards.

The home is also within the Beaumaris Secondary College zone, and close to shops, buses, cafes, restaurants, Royal Melbourne Golf Course and the beach at Ricketts Point Marine Sanctuary.
