The Manor is set up as an aged care residence but suits a number of uses.

“Camberwell has always been a tightly held suburb and this, coupled with the size of the landholding and its significant exposure to multiple thoroughfares will make it extremely sought after.”

The former hospital was renovated in 1995 to become an aged care facility offering a range of accomodation including private rooms with ensuites.

The property has eight carparks, a full commercial kitchen, garden and formal living and dining areas.

It is located close to transport and nearby key healthcare and retail facilities including The Well and Epworth Hospital.

The property is being sold by CBRE through an expressions of interest campaign, closing September 13.
