Governor of Victoria’s Kew home sale tipped to top $4.5m

Winneke Kew

The Kew family home of the late Sir Henry Winneke, Governor of Victoria between 1974 and 1982, is currently taking expressions of interest, and is expected to sell for over $4.5million.

Even in the prized suburb of Kew this would be a remarkable result, as the median price in the area is just below $2million. The home was, however, designed in 1890 by renowned late nineteenth / early twentieth century architect John Beswicke, the man also behind ‘Talana’ in Hawthorn East and nearby mansion ‘Rathgar’.

The historic five-bedroom property has been home to the Winneke family for three generations and recently underwent a decade-long renovation process, meaning it now includes a first-floor master suite, sandstone terrace with solar-heated pool and double garage. View the property here.
