Parkmore, a historic 1891 Victorian mansion in Rosebud, the seaside town on the Mornington Peninsula, has finally sold after numerous attempts.

The grand six-bedroom Victorian home at 741-743 Point Nepean Road sold for an undisclosed price having revised price hopes of $2.6 million to $2.8 million during its most recent sales campaign.

The property passed in at auction last July.

Positioned opposite the beach, last year McEwing & Partners Mornington agent Quentin McEwing saw two bidders compete for the property before it was passed in at $3,175,000.

The heritage listed manor had an initial guide of $2.7 million to $3 million which was amended to a price guidance of $3.2 million to $3.5 million before the auction.

It was listed in 2017 with $3 million to $3.3 million price guidance.


It last sold at a suburb record $2,825,000 in 2016 when bought by the property developer Robert Kampf.

Directly opposite a long sandy stretch of beach, thehouse comes with three living/dining rooms, a modern kitchen, wine cellar/cantina, six bedrooms, and an array of verandas and patios.
