Shane Moran outed as mystery buyer of historic Dawes Point house

Published on

The Managing Director of the Provectus Care Group, Shane Moran, has been revealed as the buyer of the heritage-listed Darling House in Sydney’s Dawes Point, the most expensive purchase so far in the NSW government’s sell-off of historic properties adjacent to the Harbour Bridge.

He is a member of the Moran care dynasty that has a track record of buying run down heritage homes and returning them to their former glory. This 1840s Victorian Georgian-style property cost Moran $7.7 million. Interestingly for over 20 years Darling House had been run as a low-income aged care facility for inner-city residents until the Government controversially ended its $5-a-week rent agreement in 2015.

While the 759 sqm property had been listed as a grand family home, Moran has plans to refurbish the 10-bedroom house before turning it back into a boutique aged care facility, adding it to Provectus’ portfolio of top end care facilities in NSW, VIC and QLD.

After running the family’s Moran Health for a number of years he launched Provectus in 2001. He is also a practicing lawyer and a Doctor of Philosophy in Health, with his doctoral thesis relating to the aged care crisis in China, where he also consults.
