Originally built in quadrangle form, a bluestone rendered building featured three two storey wings and one small single storey wing built around a central courtyard. Design features included a turreted tower atop a grand entrance, steep slate roof gables, decorated barges, attic dormers, rectangular window openings and contrasting quoined corners.
“Today, due to various renovations and demolitions over its history, only the south and east wings of the original school remain,” said Colliers International Geelong selling agent Andrew Lewis who is selling the property with PRDnationwide’s Laurie McGovan on behalf of a private investor.
After Geelong Grammar School relocated to a larger site Corio, 55 Maud Street sold to the Geelong City Council, which later sold it to private interests. Over the past 97 years the former school campus has been a guest house and a factory.
On a 2100 square metre block near central Geelong, the property is for sale via Expression of Interest closing at 3pm on Thursday July 28. It’s expected to sell for about $2.5 million.
