Iconic block of land from Australian classic 'The Castle' is subdivided and ...

The house from classic Australian movie The Castle has been sold and transported, leaving the iconic block of land to be subdivided and turned into McMansions.

The 1997 comedy film details the Kerrigan family and their fight to keep their suburban Melbourne home after developers try to acquire the land to expand the nearby airport.

The family eventually win the battle to keep their 'castle' with father Darryl leading the fight against the impending eviction.

But the real-life Strathmore house, next door to Essendon Airport, has not experienced the same luck as the Kerrigan family.

Instead, the famous weatherboard home has been packed up and transported to Beechworth, almost three hours away, where it will stand as a lasting memento of the much-loved Australian cinematic classic.

The home sold for $40,000 in 2017 and was bought by The Castle fans and business partners George Fendyk and Geoffrey Lucas, Real Estate reported. 

Youtuber Paul Hagl, from Phagl Productions, toured around Victoria to see what has become of the sites from the film, over two decades after its release.

Mr Hagl begins his 14-minute video from Dagonet Street, where The Castle house once stood.

'Nothing left,' Mr Hagl said. 'The Kerrigan's family home now gone.'

He returned to the land nine months later where they had begun building a second home on the property.
