Star power Vermont South house hits the market

Neighbours fans rejoice, a famous Ramsay Street home has just hit the market for the first time in 30 years.

The well-known four-bedroom house at 1 Pin Oak Court, Vermont South, nestled on 663sqm, is listed with a $1.3-$1.43 million price guide.

The property last changed hands in 1991 for $235,000, and has been regularly and very tastefully renovated over the years, according to Barry Plant Mount Waverley branch manager, Carolyn Barton.

“It’s a really lovely, updated family home with three living zones, new kitchen and bathrooms, plus the highlight – a semi-wrap around balcony,” Ms Barton said.

“It’s perfectly positioned on the reserve and offers gate access at the rear.”

The property also features an open-plan kitchen and dining area, with views overlooking the back deck and park. There is also an extra formal dining and a theatre room with access to the backyard.

Vendor and long-time fan of the TV soap, Lorraine Rushton, is seeking a sea change and said the court was a beautiful place to raise her family.

In fact, the Rushton family would watch episodes of Neighbours to get a taste of Australia before making the move from the UK in the late 1980s.

Ms Rushton said she was “really emotional” to part ways with the home where they had formed some “wonderful memories”. There were the bonus extras from the show, such as the 24-7 security system, a Wiggles appearance, and being featured in newspapers and on the Ray Martin Show.

Agent Caroline Barton said the property had sparked a mixed bag of interest among families and fans alike.

“We’ve had varied interest from growing families looking to upsize, but I have one very keen group who really want to buy it because it’s in ‘Ramsay St’,” she said.

“There is definitely more to the property than the bricks and mortar, it’s very tightly held within a very friendly community.”

Barry Plant Mount Waverley will auction the iconic address on Saturday, May 1 at 11am.
