Acclaimed Aussie actor Guy Pearce is bidding farewell to his beloved bayside Melbourne home of 29 years. The Middle Park listing has quickly become the most viewed home in Australia, according to property marketplace Domain.
Situated on dual titles at 341-343 Richardson Street, between the picturesque bay and serene Albert Park Lake, the double-fronted Edwardian house has a guide price of $8.5m to $9.35m. It spans 748 sqm across two redbrick wings, connected by a central glass breezeway.
Fully restored and modernised, the historic Middle Park home retains original fireplaces, leadlight windows, and Baltic pine floors. The living zone seamlessly flows to an enclosed garden oasis featuring a deck, fire pit, patio, and separate guest studio, surrounded by lush greenery.
The four-bedroom Melbourne property is listed exclusively with Jellis Craig, with expressions of interest closing at 2 pm on 21 August 2023.
Pearce got his start on the cult soap Neighbours before achieving international fame with roles in Jack Irish, LA Confidential, Memento, Brimstone and Prometheus. He held onto the Melbourne property as his Aussie base, though he currently lives in Amsterdam with his partner, Game of Thrones actress Carice van Houten, and their son.
The house shot to the top of Domain’s ‘most viewed’ national listings within days of appearing on the marketplace, making it ‘the most-wanted property in Australia this week.’
