A former Geelong Grammar campus is for sale.
With 47 rooms, the c1857 Gothic building at 55 Maud Street could sell for $2.5 million; developers, investors and prestige residential buyers are being targeted.
Backhouse and Reynolds designed the facility after a design competition.
The school occupied until 1914.
Originally in quadrangle form, the bluestone structure featured three wings around a courtyard.
“Today, due to various renovations and demolitions over its history, only the south and east wings of the original school remain,” Colliers International’s Andrew Lewis, who is marketing the property with PRDnationwide’s Laurie McGovan, said.
The site spreads 2100 square metres.
The vendor is a private investor.
For a period, the local council held it.
In later years it was occupied separately as a guesthouse, factory and theological college.
Geelong Grammar relocated to a 162 hectare Corio campus.
