Next chapter imminent for former Rosedale Dairy in Prahran
A former dairy in the heart of Prahran, that has been in the same family for nearly a century, has just hit the market.
The Morgans family operated Rosedale Dairy from the 1930s to 1960s at 20 Errol St.
Now, the period home with a double garage and large self-contained storage room that was formerly the cool room, will be going to auction on April 13.

Jellis Craig, agent Andrew McCann said the property had been in the family for “forever and a day”.
“The house is comfortable, the next owner will likely spend money to add capital improvement to it whether it is a renovation or new home site,” Mr McCann said.
“It is in a terrific location and it is very rare to find something like this.”
The house has three bedrooms, a lounge room and an open-plan kitchen, meals area and living room in relatively original condition.
The 268sq m property is a short walk from Hawksburn Village and Hawksburn station.
Jack Morgans was born at the property in 1926 and stayed there up until he died in 2017.
Dubbed Mr Prahran, he spent more than 60 years on the Prahran Football Club committee and was president for a time.
Mr Morgans started his career as an apprentice compositor in 1940 with Fitchett Brothers before it was renamed Southdown Press in 1946.
He became a production manager and oversaw magazines like TV Week and New Idea in his 50-year career.
The sale of this property will be the end of an era for the Morgans family.
Price hopes for the Prahran property with outstanding potential are $1.5 million to $1.65 million.
