Ron Barassi’s former Richmond pub seeks $4m

The Richmond pub still  known as “Barassi’s”, despite the ex-footballer and Victorian of the Year Ron Barassi selling it in 2000, goes to auction later this month.

The sportsman and a then-business partner Adrian Galagher refurbished the Mountain View Hotel in the 1980s as a deli and lounge bar.

Mr Barassi later acquired full ownership of the property, which he divested for $1.4 million.

It is expected to sell for about $4m this time around.

Over two floors it is configured with a rooftop beer garden.

The Mountain View Hotel will be sold with a 10-year lease to the present owner, Cook Beaumont & Partners, which is offering starting annual rent of $270,000.

The vendor own and manages 29 outlets in Melbourne, country Victoria and North Queensland, the marketing agent said.
