Nicholas Scott Real Estate, Yarraville are happy to announce the market listing of 481 Melbourne Road, Newport, Victoria – Listed under an expression of interest campaign, this heritage listed property is set to break the current Newport sales record.

The house, designed by Robert Adamson and constructed in 1875, at 481 Melbourne Road, Newport is of local historic and aesthetic significance to the City of Hobsons Bay.

Aesthetically, it is significant as a locally rare example of an elaborate double fronted Victorian villa, which is notable for its uncommon wall material and unusual cast iron verandah detailing.

Historically, it is significant as the oldest building in Newport and illustrates the early development of this area, and is also of interest for its associations with the local important McIndoe family.

Nicholas Scot Real Estate Sales Consultant and listing agent for 481 Melbourne Road, Erden Karakurt believes that off the back of the agency’s record sale in Yarraville, (31 – 33 Somerville Road – $3.21 Million) the Melbourne Road property is set to break another local record due to the current demand for property and land in the Newport Area.

“The property itself presents numerous options for potential buyers considering both the land size and the location as well as the potential to develop”, said Mr Karakurt.
