Pollster and serial mayoral candidate Gary Morgan is about to list his historic East Melbourne mansion in George Street, which will be aimed at international buyers.

The chairman of Roy Morgan Research has picked a new home in the area, spending $5,155,000 to get a 14-room Victorian villa on Powlett Street about a fortnight ago.

Morgan had to pay $780,000 above the reserve to take ”Claverings” at the hotly contested auction.

The two-storey Victorian he is selling was designed by famed architect Charles Webb in 1864 and is considered to be one of the best houses in East Melbourne.

The property at 193 George Street has seven bedrooms, two reception rooms, a drawing room, two studies, three kitchens, 18th-century marble fireplaces, marble floors and cedar doors. There’s also a coach house with a self-contained apartment.

Jock Langley of Abercromby’s is believed to be targeting international buyers in a sales campaign that will run until late April. Nobody associated with the property wants to talk price, but industry sources say the starting point is likely to be about $10 million.

‘I won’t sell if I don’t get the right price,” Mr Morgan tells Private Property. ”I think when people see it they will realise it’s one of Melbourne’s best homes.”
