A heritage-listed castle with the ultimate grand estate feel is now up for grabs with a price guide of $3.9-4.25 million.
And best of all? You don’t have to waste your time in upkeep – instead, this luxurious yet low-maintenance complex allows you to enjoy all the best bits without any extra hassle.
At 1 Armytage Drive in Portsea, you’ll find this eye-catching historic castle, that is a part of the Delgany luxury residential estate.
“It’s a very rare offering on the Mornington peninsula,” says Patrick Sinn, of Peninsula Sotheby’s International Realty.

The remarkable property was originally designed by Harold Dasbrowe Annear, a famous Victorian architect, in 1922, and later reconfigured into apartments and townhouses in 2008.
Behind the immaculate reconfiguration of this three-bedroom home is Stephen Akehurst, a highly esteemed architectural designer, who is well-known for creating classic, luxurious homes.
The current owner is a huge fan of Stephen Akehurst, and when he originally purchased the apartment off the plan, he got the renowned designer involved in the internal design.
“That certainly makes it very much a one-off, bespoke apartment,” says Mr Sinn.
And indeed, it’s impossible to take your eyes off this one-of-a-kind residence, that just keeps on giving, even when you step outside!
“The owners’ favourite aspect is that they’ve got an expansive north-facing loggia there, which is great for relaxing or entertaining,” explains Mr Sinn.
The keys to this castle could be yours if you require first-class quality and lifestyle, but want a home that you can also just lock up and leave.
It’s well suited to buyers who are looking for a carefree low-maintenance property. Many of the current owners in that development do spend a lot of their time overseas.Patrick Sinn, Peninsula Sotheby’s International Realty
