One of Warrnambool CBD's most expensive homes has been sold for just in excess of the $3.5 million asking price.
Selling agent Mark Wilson said there were a couple of parties interested in the property but Murweh, built in 1874 on the top of Liebig Street, eventually sold to a Warrnambool family.
"It created a lot of interest naturally," Mr Wilson, of Wilson's Real Estate, said.
"Because of its history and its position...in so far as Warrnambool city is concerned it's the dearest one we've sold.
"There may be others that have sold more, whether or not they are in the city I don't know."
The sandstone house was built for James Wotton Shevill who served as a councillor in Warrnambool between 1875 and 1878, including one term as mayor.
It's the second $3.5m property Wilson Real Estate has sold in recent weeks.
He said Alkina Lodge near Moonlight Heads sold for $3.5 million to Daylesford buyers who intend to develop it further in a similar fashion for accommodation.
