Richmond midfielder Josh Caddy is selling his avant-garde Richmond home just two-and-a-half years after finishing its construction.
The three-bedroom, three-bathroom residence at 34 Fraser Street is listed with a price guide of $2.4 million to $2.6 million.
The dual-premiership AFL player, who has owned the property since April 2018, designed the unassuming-looking abode from scratch with his older brother.
The two-storey home’s exterior presents as a demure blend of uniform concrete and simple timber accents, hiding a sophisticated interior.
It features terrazzo-finished concrete floors, monochromatic shades of white and grey, vaulted ceilings, dolomite marble and Smeg appliances in the kitchen, a gas log fire, a study nook and an abundance of natural light.
A stunning bluestone-paved central courtyard is surrounded by oversized windows that bathe the ground floor in sunlight.
Marshall White is handling the auction of Mr Caddy’s posh residence, and auctioneer Andrew Gibbons said the home had already garnered strong interest.
“This home will appeal to a large demographic of different buyers, and since it was launched online, it has been very well received,” he said.
Mr Gibbons added that the property offered genuinely unique selling points for the area, and he wouldn’t be surprised if it surpassed its top-end estimate of $2.6 million.
“The majority of homes in Richmond are these little single-fronted Victorians, so this place is sort of in a class of its own,” he said. “I think the auction will really be a testament to a property such as this, so I could see it going over that $2.6 million mark.”
The home will go to auction on Saturday, November 13.
