One of Mount Martha’s most prominent houses is for sale again.
The 1920s Tudor style Dalkeith House at 245 Nepean Highway carries a c$4 million guide.
Vendors Jim and Lorraine Heber have fully restored it since buying it five years ago.
It was unsuccessfully offered in mid-2007 asking c$5m.
The five-bedroom dwelling includes half-timber wall finishes, stone chimneys and leadlight picture windows.
On more than four hectares, the grounds are designed with an orchard, horse paddock, tennis court and swimming pool (story continues below).
Dalkeith House was previously used as a wedding reception venue, bed-and-breakfast accommodation, and the site of Agatha Christie-type murder-mystery parties.
In 1974, then on 34ha, it was bequeathed to three hospitals – the Royal Melbourne, St Vincents and The Alfred.
Those recipients later onsold it as a private home.
Bennison Mackinnon director Andrew Macmillan, and Andrew McMann, in conjunction with Aqua Real Estate, are marketing it this time around.
