The Victorian era jewel of Mirvac’s 190-dwelling Moreton development, historic Moreton Manor, has been sold for around $9 million.

Scarba House, as the the Victorian Italianate mansion was once known, had been originally built as a four-room cottage in the 1850s, but extended in the 1880s.

The Benevolent Society ran it as a children’s welfare home from 1920 until 1986, before it sold to Mirvac in 2013.

Architects Tina Engelen and William Fung, co-directors of CO-AP, were commissioned with heritage firm Design 5 Architects to undertake the restoration.
