A PROMINENT Dandenong home that has stumped history buffs looks likely to be knocked down.
McLennan Real Estate is marketing the 1218 square metre property at 164 Foster Street, across the road from Dandenong Plaza and on the corner of McCrae Street.
It dates back to about the 1890s, agent Daryl Rayner said, and is Edwardian in style with high ceilings and ornate plasterwork.
Dandenong and District Historical Society president Chris Keys said the property did not appear on any heritage reports or in the detailed study The Character of Nineteenth Century Dandenong.
“We were unable to establish the date it was built,” she said.
“We understand from hearsay that the first owner was a Brumbly and that a Dr Stewart owned it sometime later.”
Mr Rayner said the four-bedroom, two-bathroom home was in the residential growth zone, making the site ideal for residential development, a restaurant or medical centre – subject to council approval.
“This is a rare opportunity to secure the most central development site available in recent memory,” he said.
The property will go under the hammer on Saturday 28 May.
