Intriguing history to Melbourne auction venue

When Christian McCann was invited to auction the entire contents of a Victorian mansion at 34 Brewster Street, Essendon, little did he realise the intriguing facts he would uncover about its past.

The mansion features a tower where the original merchant owner would sit to watch for the ships carrying his imported cargo to sail into port – but that is not what makes this historic property so fascinating.

Any visitor who looks up will see ceilings painted by an artisan who unfortunately would never complete his work.

Christian McCann Auctions on the move

After a decade at 426 Burnley Street, Richmond, Christian McCann Auctions is on the move to new and larger premises.

Before the shift, however, the auction house must sell all its existing vendor stock – a monumental task that has become a full-time preoccupation for managing director Christian McCann.

“Our ‘Goodbye Burnley Street’ auction will be from noon Sunday August 4,” he says. “However, there are so many items we cannot possibly achieve it in one sale so this auction will be part one and comprise more than 750 items.”
