Fox Sports reports that the property in Melbourne’s northern suburbs will soon be up for sale after more than 20 years.
A new owner, who has been living in the property for more than five years, bought it from its previous owner and has been renting it out to people.
It’s the latest in a long line of Melbourne property acquisitions that have been bought and sold over the past year, including the Melbourne Cricket Ground, a former Melbourne stadium.
The Victorian Government has given $5.9 million to the Noble house property to be used as a heritage building.
A statement from the Government’s Heritage Conservation and Conservation Strategy stated: “The Noble House is a special case of Melbourne’s heritage heritage.
In 2016, the Government funded the purchase of a portion of the Noble Building from its former owner and allocated $5 million towards the purchase and conservation of this unique building.
The Government of Victoria will continue to support the development of the property, as part of its heritage heritage program.””
The Noble Building is an important piece of Melbourne history, one of the first houses in Melbourne built by a local resident and a significant asset to the city’s history,” Treasurer Josh Frydenberg said.”
It is a building that is a significant part of the Victorian landscape, and one that has been used by generations of residents for decades.”
The Government will continue working with local communities, heritage groups and local businesses to ensure the building’s history is preserved.
