Offers close tomorrow (Tuesday June 19) for the Hawthorn home of the former Australia Post boss Ahmed Fahour.

Invergowrie has $40 million to $44 million hopes.

The marketing campaign copped a neighbouring rival listing when Avon Court (pictured above) was listed recently off market with $45 million to $50 million price hopes. 

The Hawthorn trophy home, Invergowrie was bought by Fahour bought off-market with wife Dionnie in 2013 for $22 million, when he was Australia’s highest-paid public servant.

The Victorian record likely remains unchallenged as it sits at around $52.5 million for the Stonington mansion in Malvern.

Its June 19 expressions of interest public marketing has surprised industry players since most record setters sell off-market or at private boardroom auctions.

Its marketing was launched on the listing agent's instragram, but there have been no internal photos made available.

Domain spruiked its internal access, but readers were only offered written impressions, not pictorial.

Its features a five-bedroom main home, plus a three-bedroom brick house, a bluestone two-bedroom cottage and an old bluestone hall that can be used as a garage, gym or studio.

He reinstated a tennis court.

The property, once known as Burwood, features a working bell tower and a billiards room.

Fahour is downsizing after recently buying a $16 million mansion in Kinkora Road, Hawthorn.
