186 Dow St, Port Melbourne

10 September 2016

This rare vacant site was sold by Frank Gordon for $2,055,000. It has a 10.06 m frontage and is 30.18m deep.

The site was offered for the first time in 112 years.

The 'scarcity of land unencumbered by a heritage overlay' was noted as an attraction to purchasers.

September 2016
The site has lain empty between 1997 and 2016 - nearly twenty years. It was formerly the home of Jack and Phyllis Nichols. Phyllis was closely associated with St Josephs School.
