Black­burn’s golden era

Herald Sun - Property - - PROPERTY CONFIDENTIAL -

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.
