A stunning 35-square, two-storey home will go under the hammer at Villawood’s Coridale community in Lara for the 2023 Royal Children’s Hospital’s Good Friday Appeal.
Villawood’s Rory Costelloe and Henley Homes’ Mark Glenn launched the Charity House Auction home on site with GFA Geelong area manager Elie Freijah, a 12-year childhood veteran of the Royal Children’s, together with other patients, tradies and Lara families.
The stunning four-bedroom Henley Electra 35, a 7-star Solar All Electric design, on a 512sqm lot on Coridale Boulevard at the upmarket Coridale, is directly opposite the new $7.6 million Club Coridale, presently under construction as well.
The club will feature a swimming pool, gymnasium, multi-sports courts, family and function areas and more.
The GFA Charity Home Auction is one of Victoria’s most loved auction events and one of the biggest contributors to the appeal. Each year, it attracts a mass crowd of up to 1000 people for a giant street party accompanying the auction. All proceeds of the fund-raiser are donated to the Royal Children’s.
The Charity Home Auction is a Good Friday fixture and has raised $9.4 million during Villawood’s 13 years and more than $18 million during Henley’s 30 years.
Behind the landmark build are more than 100 volunteer trades and suppliers who donate their labour and resources to create a stunning family home in a highly-sought greenfields location.

From modest beginnings in 1989 developing small subdivisions in Bendigo, today Villawood Properties predominately concentrates on large scale master planned communities which incorporate a combination of mixed-use town centres, residents’ clubs, educational facilities, large display villages and the creation of high quality parks and open spaces.
We understand there is much more to creating a living, breathing community than simply constructing a housing allotment, and are committed to going that extra mile to deliver vibrant communities where residents form strong and lasting relationships. With a proven track record in delivering innovative, community-focused developments, Villawood boasts a portfolio of over 50 completed residential projects.
Villawood Properties has an unrivalled commitment to creating new communities that set higher levels of lifestyle, design, engagement and activity, and giving back. It is all about sustainability in every sense of the word and setting vastly improved benchmarks for how Australians live.
Veteran broadcaster Ray Martin, with a life-long newsman’s antenna for ground-breaking stories, delves deep into just how executive directors Rory Costelloe and Tony Johnson have set up such a different, and successful, modus operandi at Villawood.
Style without compromise. It’s something we all deserve.
And now it’s within your reach.
After three decades of building communities, Villawood Properties have created their own range of brand-new designer homes. VillaRange is a selection of intelligent residences, designed in collaboration with future-thinking architects and inspired by urban style.
Design, quality and value are at the core of Villawood’s VillaRange.
Villawood Properties has stormed into the South Australia market, expanding its national presence with a multi-billion-dollar suite of Adelaide residential projects and drawing a powerful media response with the first project launched by SA Premier Steven Marshall.
Villawood has five projects in train that will deliver more than 5000 homes over the coming decade.
Melbourne’s surging property prices are making it increasingly difficult for people in the essential services to get into the market. Villawood’s Care Worker Support Program was created in 2018 so that people working in these roles can still afford to buy land in Villawood projects.
Under this initiative, purchasers who are employed as care workers who work within a 10km radius of a Villawood community that they are seeking to buy in, will be eligible for a $20,000 rebate on their block of land. Villawood devised the Care Workers Support Program so care workers may live and work in the communities they serve.
