Herald Sun - Property - - PROPERTY CONFIDENTIAL -

HAV­ING just cov­ered the Os­cars, en­ter­tain­ment reporter, au­thor and for­mer Aus­tralian of the Year John Cald­well has listed his gor­geous Prahran home for auc­tion.

A man of many tal­ents, Cald­well is chief ex­ec­u­tive of retail re­cruit­ment busi­ness RWR Group, a Brodie’s Law Foun­da­tion board mem­ber, KIIS FM en­ter­tain­ment reporter and was the 2014 Aus­tralian of the Year in Vic­to­ria.

His el­e­gant Vic­to­rian home at 126 Wil­liams Rd is on the mar­ket af­ter a bril­liant ren­o­va­tion by Bax­ter Cre­ative, fin­ished with a lux­u­ri­ous new liv­ing and din­ing do­main.

The three­bed­room home comes with Cala­catta mar­ble kitchen bench­tops, Miele ap­pli­ances and a sleek out­door set­ting com­plete with a fire­place and built-in bar­be­cue.

Jel­lis Craig’s Mark Robert­son is tak­ing the home to auc­tion on March 19, with price hopes of $2 mil­lion-plus. EASTER is around the cor­ner and with it comes the Good Fri­day Ap­peal Char­ity Home Auc­tion.

This year Hen­ley and Villa­wood Prop­er­ties have do­nated a new four-bed­room home at Lot 931 Ole­an­der Pde in Mick­le­ham’s Tril­lium es­tate.

It will be auc­tioned on March 25, mark­ing the 37th home sold for the ap­peal.

All pro­ceeds go straight to the ap­peal, rais­ing money for the Royal Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal.

Built by Hen­ley, the bou­tique res­i­dence has mul­ti­ple liv­ing zones, de­signer fin­ishes like a but­ler’s pantry and Jet­mas­ter gas fire­place, and am­ple space for the fam­ily.

On the day there will be free en­ter­tain­ment, a sausage siz­zle and guests from Chan­nel 7.
