While the outdoor area could also use some TLC, there is a vast amount of space and a large shed at the back.

Compton Green agent Dee Gibson told realestate.com.au that the home actually serves as living quarters for real Williamstown police in the early 1900s.

‘Its true history was that it was the watchkeeper’s residence, so I’m sure it would have many stories to tell if it could talk,’ she said.

‘It’s not common to find 700sq m of land and for that reason alone it makes it a unique proposition.’

Australians were in tears when Lisa’s character Maggie Doyle was fatally shot in dramatic scenes of Blue Heelers in 2000.

Almost two decades on from the iconic TV moment, the actress revealed in 2018 that she never wanted the police officer to die.

In the police drama, Maggie was shot and killed a day before she was due to enter witness protection, after she found a computer disk with information about a gang.

She told news.com.au: ‘I understand why they had to do it, but I think because I knew she had such a strong, young female following I felt really strongly that I wanted her to stay alive.’
