The Royal Children’s Hospital secured $646,000 after Henley and Villawood Properties offered an auction property proceeds towards the hospital’s Good Friday Appeal.

The property property was at Villawood Properties’ Trillium community in Mickleham.

There was spirited bidding for the award winning Henley Sahara Belle Q1 home at the no reserve auction where all proceeds were donated to the hospital. 
A range of suppliers, including Austral Bricks, Hisense, Deckable Decking, All Green Nursery all donated their services or materials towards the home.

Villawood Properties executive director Rory Costelloe said he was absolutely thrilled with the result.

"It’s the culmination of a great collective effort and to see the home bought by a lovely couple, who already live in one of our communities and are set to start their family makes it even more gratifying.” 

The winning bidders were Sila and Martha Mataia, who are residents of another Villawood Properties community, Aspire in Plumpton.

They are awaiting the birth of their first child.

As in previous years, Villawood Properties donated a block of land with Henley building a brand new home.

Henley’s 22 years of involvement with the Good Friday Appeal has seen around $12 million raised for The Royal Children’s hospital, said Nicole Nightingale, Henley philanthropy manager.

It was a four bedroom, three bathroom house set on a 448 square metre plot in Villawood Property's Trillium development at Mickleham, in Melbourne's north.

The double storey house has five living areas and opens through timber stacking doors to an outdoor entertaining space with merbau decking.

The kitchen includes a walk-in butler's pantry and a 900mm cooktop, twin wall ovens and a built in coffee machine, as well as a dishwasher. It also includes Caesarstone benchtops, as do the bathrooms and en suite.

The home was marketed by Alex Kundevski and Troy Apostolopoulos of Oliver Hume. 

The Sahara Belle Q1 house usually costs $297,900 (not including land). The Trillium development is located 32 kilometres north of the Melbourne CBD, just north of Craigieburn. Last year, Henley and Villawood raised $717,000 for the Good Friday Appeal when they auctioned off a house in the Aspire community in Plumpton. 

This Easter marks the Good Friday Appeal's 85th year of contribution to the Royal Children's Hospital.
