A Fitzroy house that was sold on-screen on Offspring is set to change hands in reality.

The charming Victorian at 191 Gore St was sold by Billie and Darcy Proudman, who were real estate agents in the award-winning Australian TV drama series.

Billie was played by Logie winner Kat Stewart, while actor and musician John Waters played Darcy. Asher Keddie’s beloved main character Nina Proudman was their sister and daughter.

The house was used in the first season of the show.

Nelson Alexander agent Rick Daniel said the house appeared in the first series of Offspring when it was sold by the father-daughter duo through their company Proudman’s Real Estate.

But the three-bedroom house is now for sale in real life, with a $3.8-$4.1 million price guide.

“This house is an icon in the area and recognisable to anyone who regularly walks or drives past it,” Mr Daniel said.

“It has been very well received on the market and we’ve had interest locally, within Victoria and Australia-wide.”

A bespoke kitchen adds plenty of character.

The house has a $3.8-$4.1 million price guide.

A lap pool is one of the home’s highlights.

The Fitzroy house is found at the heart of where all seven seasons of Offspring were filmed.

It’s just a few doors down from the terrace where Nina Proudman lived and on the same street as the Union Club Hotel where Jimmy Proudman worked, played by Richard Davies.

It’s believed the house was originally built in the 1890s before it was used as a Greek language school, when it is believed to have been painted light blue.

Three bedrooms are in the 1890s residence.

The block is unusually large for Fitzroy.

It has also been used in a Medibank commercial and the vendors were often contacted by location scouts about using it as a set.

“They’re a professional couple who have been enjoying the house and loved having the veggie patch and chicken run in the backyard,” Mr Daniel said.

“It’s probably the only house with a chook run within 2km of the CBD.”

A chicken run is an unusual feature at the inner-city house.

Fans of the show will enjoy stepping into the historic home, which also includes a designer kitchen, tiled dining room and a 16m salt chlorinated lap pool.

This star listing is scheduled to head under the hammer on June 1.
