The former CEO of Australia Post, Ahmed Fahour, is selling his Melbourne home with a suggested price tag of between $40-$44 million.

The property in Hawthorn was bought by Fahour in 2013 for $22 million.

Named Invergowrie, it spans 10,320-square metres and consists of four separate buildings: a manor built in 1846, a guesthouse built in the 1930s, a blue-stone cottage and a large hall that has been converted into a garage and gymnasium.

All in all, that’s nine bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, and nine parking spaces.

With distinctive Colonial-Gothic architecture, the mansion is set on landscaped gardens with a pool and tennis court, and is considered one of Melbourne’s finest estates.

The Coppin Grove property is also just metres from the Yarra River in one of Hawthorn’s most exclusive precincts.

If sold for the indicative price, it will set the record as the city’s most expensive sale.

The Expressions of Interest campaign closes on June 19.

Once the world’s most expensive postie, Fahour resigned for Australia Post in February 2017 after Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull criticised the executive’s pay.

He left the company with a payout of $10.8 million, boosted by bonuses, and later took up the role of executive chairman at packaging group Pro Pac.
