Inside Melissa Caddick's $15m Sydney home as it is put up for sale

The five-bedroom Sydney home that once belonged to Melissa Caddick is now up for sale.

The $15 million property on Wallangra Road in Dover Heights was listed on Monday and the money made from the sale will be returned to investors who were victims of Caddick's Ponzi scheme.

Bruce Gleeson from Jones Partners, the receivers of Melissa Caddick and Liquidators of Maliver Pty Ltd, said since the home was vacated in May this year, minor improvements have been made to "amplify the property’s luxurious appeal".

"The home is positioned in an elevated part of one of Dover Heights’ most sought-after streets and we are extremely pleased to be able to offer this prestigious property for sale during spring," he said.

“The sale campaign will be conducted via an Expressions of Interest which is scheduled to close on 31 October 2022 and thereafter a private auction (if required).”

$10,000 deposit just to view Caddick home

However, if you would like to inspect the home there's a slight catch — people are going to need to put down a $10,000 refundable deposit just to see the property.

This will be done to ensure only serious buyers are coming through to look at the home and true crime buffs are deterred, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

The home has five bedrooms, the main bedroom has a luxury ensuite a walk-in wardrobe, and panoramic views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

The open plan living and dining room flow out onto a terrace that also takes in harbour views. There's a gourmet chef's kitchen.

There are also four bathrooms, a pool, a rumpus room, and a kitchenette on the lower level, a security system, a wine cellar and a double garage.

"Commanding elevated outlooks across its exclusive eastern suburbs surrounds, this elegant family haven is set against a quintessential Sydney Harbour backdrop, with views stretching along the water to the city's iconic skyline and Harbour Bridge," the listing says.

Inquest into conwoman's disappearance set to resume

Mr Gleeson added Jones Partners are close to finalising the application to seek the sale orders regarding Ms Caddick's designer jewellery, clothing and artworks.

The inquest into the disappearance and suspected death of Ms Caddick is due to resume with evidence from an investigator who helped uncover her million-dollar fraud.

Isabella Allen from the Australian Securities and Investments Commission led the formal investigation from September 8, 2020 into Ms Caddick's Ponzi scheme operated under her fake company Maliver.

The conwoman purported to be investing her victims' wealth by appearing to set up CommSec trading accounts and forging documents to claim she was generating profits through capital growth and shares.

She preyed on mostly friends and family and stole up to $30 million between 2013 and 2020, counsel assisting Jason Downing SC has told the inquest.

A week after the corporate watchdog began its investigation into the misappropriation of funds, Ms Caddick booked shredding services for document destruction at her home address.

The last verified sighting of Ms Caddick was when ASIC and the Australian Federal Police raided her Dover Heights mansion on November 11, 2020.
