The former Adelaide summer home of the Noble Prize winner Dr Howard Florey, the co-inventor of penicillin, has been listed for sale through South Australia Sotheby's agent Grant Giordano. 

The renovated Victorian sandstone villa in Belair, in the foothills east of the city, was built in the early 1900s for Howard’s father Joseph, who was a successful boot manufacturer from England.

Howard lived at the home until 1921, when he sailed for England where he died in 1968.

Last traded for $850,000 in 2007, the property has four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a two room stone cellar.

It sits in 2,400 square metres of manicured gardens.
