An iconic 19th Century home from the beloved television show A Country Practice is set to go under the hammer.
The Oakville property at 23 Clare Crescent, which is perhaps better known by television viewers as Wandin Valley Hospital, is predicted to fetch up to $3million when it is auctioned in September.
‘Clare House’ has had just eight owners since it was built in 1828 and became a popular tourist spot following its appearance on the show.

The estate has barely changed since it was on the iconic TV show – although it no longer masquerades as a hospital
Set across a whopping 10,760 square metres, only the outside of the home was used for filming with the interiors of the hospital shot in a Sydney studio.
Set over two floors the four-bedroom, two-bathroom home boasts a huge kitchen, formal rooms, period features and working fire places in most rooms.
Outside it has a wrap-around veranda, fully filtered fish pond, stone driveway and below-ground pool.
And while it was never actually a hospital, the property does feature stables, a dressage arena and an industrial tradesmen’s shed.

The historic home was last sold a decade ago for a whopping $980,000 according to Domain, with Ron and Trish O’Brien owning the property for 30 years – including the time it was on screen.
The couple had reportedly been approached by a man to use the house as a TV setting and just six weeks later production began.
Hamish Rogers Realty is managing the sale, with the property going to auction 11am on September 30 if a buyer isn’t found beforehand.
Realtor Wendy Phillips told Realestate.com.au there had already been a big interest in the property but there was yet to be a set price.
‘We’ve had quite a few emails because it is a bit different, and it is interesting … the grounds and the stables are just ridiculously beautiful,’ she said.

Among the other sites still standing from the show is Frank and Shirley’s home in Pitt Town and the ‘Wandin Valley Police Station’ at 17 Johnston St in the same town.
A Country Practice followed the story of a medical staff living in the fictional New South Wales Town of Wandin Valley.
It boasted a star studded guest cast that included Nicole Kidman, Toni Colette, Simon Baker, Delta Goodrem and even then-prime minister Bob Hawke.
The popular television series ran from 1981 to 1994 and spanned 13 seasons.
It is perhaps best known for the death scene of beloved character Molly Jones, whose final moments were filmed from her perspective as the camera faded to black.
