Blackburn’s golden era
FOR the first time in almost 40 years a classic Blackburn home built by prominent property developer Thomas Morton is on the market.
The highly-regarded developer was instrumental in establishing Blackburn Lake, with nearby Morton Park named in his honour.
Morton’s House, at 2 Gordon Cres, is an enchanting residence, built in 1888 and surrounded by stunning landscaped gardens.
The four-bedroom floorplan is warm and inviting with a classically timeless decor finished with modern appointments throughout.
Terry Burgoyne, of Barry Plant, Blackburn, is taking the home to auction on February 27, with a price guide of $2.2 million-plus.
