The house at 3 Dagonet Stret, Strathmore is up for grabs. But only the iconic house, not the land.

The longtime owner of the house from The Castle says she’ll take what she can at July 25 auction for the humble Strathmore weatherboard that sits adjacent to the airport.

It is famous for its role as Darryl Kerrigan’s “castle” in the 1997 film.

Rebecca Towns from the listing agency Brad Teal is expecting it to fetch anywhere between $1000 and $10,000 as the buyer will then need to spend another $45,000 to $50,000.

Brad Teal is marketing the house as “the ultimate piece of movie memorabilia” and a “once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase a piece of Australian history”.

“It’s sure to excite movie enthusiasts, entrepreneurs and great Aussie battlers,” the listing said.

Seller Vicky Cosentino told The Herald Sun she couldn’t wait for someone to take the house off her hands after 24 years of ownership which included the two-week shoot of The Castle, which she advised she never gave permission for.

Cosentino has wants to build two townhouses after the Moonee Valley council voted not to pursue permanent heritage protection for the home.

It drew interest from Federation Council and Corowa Whisky, who considered moving it north of the river as a tourist attraction. But that never eventuated.

“To tell you the truth, yes (I’m over it),” Cosentino said.

“Even if I get $2000 or $3000 for it, as long as it’s moved off my property. It’s nothing to do with the money.

“I would like to see someone look after it, but I really don’t mind where it goes, whether it’s to Mildura or Bonnie Doon.”

Towns expected the house to suit first-home buyers who already had some land, or an investor looking to use it as an Airbnb.
