brunswick building used as the castle location hits the market

Written by The ReReport

728 Sydney Rd, Brunswick — a filming location for The Castle — is for sale.

IT’S justice, it’s law, it’s the vibe — and it’s a slice of Aussie film history.
The fictional office building of fumbling lawyer, Dennis Denuto, has hit the market in Brunswick.
A filming location for the 1997 film The Castle at 728 Sydney Rd is for sale with a $1.2 million asking price.

728 Sydney Rd, BrunswickThe Sydney Rd property is wedged between lawyers and a fish and chip shop.

Walshe & Whitelock agent Jane Sowersby said the building, owned by the parents of comedian and The Castle writer Santo Cilauro, had been in the family since the mid-1970s.
The office scenes for the much-quoted Denuto were filmed there.
“They’ve called in a favour — I think they had a really low budget for filming of The Castle,” Ms Sowersby said.

The building, on a block of about 250sq m, is being used as a shop downstairs and is vacant upstairs.
It could suit a range of uses, Ms Sowersby said.
“Some people might keep it as is and spruce it up, others might look at potentially developing it or even making upstairs a residence. Or just a long-term investment, like it has been,” she said.
“A lawyer could move right in.”
A sizeable backyard and garage are also part of the property, but buyers will have to bring their own broken photocopiers.

And the area’s vibe — with a mix of cultures, cuisines and amenities — is expected to attract buyers, too.
“There’s a bit of everything in the area; cafes, pubs like the Edinburgh Castle, and you’ve got Omara supermarket and Don Bosco nearby,” Ms Sowersby said.
The property is being offered via a private sale campaign.
