Clifftop digs to treasure
FORMER Victorian Liberal Party treasurer Andrew
Abercrombie and his wife, Shadda, have listed their clifftop holiday home in Portsea.
Selling agent Liz Jensen of Kay & Burton, Portsea, said Mr Abercrombie (right) — a millionaire businessman and chairman of FlexiGroup — built the limestone house for his family.
The seven-bedroom residence is set on a 3758sq m block at 32-34 Blair Rd, which CoreLogic records show last changed hands in 1998 for $666,000.
It now boasts landscaped gardens, a synthetic grass tennis court, infinity pool, barbecue pavilion and separate limestone cottage.
Ms Jensen said the house was on the “best street off the cliff front” in Portsea.
The property is being sold via an expressions of interest campaign ending February 7, with price hopes of $5 million-plus.
