A two-bedroom house once owned by former Neighbours star Jason Donovan is up for auction, Realestate.com.au reported on Friday.
The property in Burnley, Melbourne is believed to have been owned by Jason – who played Scott Robinson on the long-running Aussie soap – between 1987 and 1994.
Kylie Minogue, Jason’s on and off-screen girlfriend during his Ramsay Street years, is understood to have spent some time at the home while the pair were dating.

The couple ended their relationship when Kylie left Jason for INXS frontman Michael Hutchence, who she dated between 1989 and 1991.
They have reunited several times over the years as friends and musical collaborators, most recently teaming up for a show in London’s Hyde Park.
Kylie was performing their 1988 duet Especially For You last week as a choir sang Jason’s lines.

She then stopped the show and told the audience she needed a dance partner.
Jason then joined his former flame on stage and performed the song with her to the delight of the crowd.
He later revealed on Twitter that the surprise performance was unplanned.
‘I literally turned up on my bike to support my friend Kylie and next thing you know I’m on stage in front of 70,000 people recreating those dance moves.
‘I loved every second. Thank you for all your support. Memories = magic.’
Who’s there? The man tasked with selling the property, Clayton Smith, said that fans used to knock on Jason’s door in the 1980s and he would hide out his neighbour’s house
The owners of the Burnley property, who bought the house from Jason in the ’90s, are moving interstate and hope to make between $850,000 and $900,000 at auction.
Clayton Smith, a selling agent for Jellis Craig Richmond, said: ‘I’m told that back in those days there used to be a few fans knocking on the door and [Jason] would sneak out the back and have dinner with the neighbours and pretend he wasn’t home.’
The inner-city home has high ceilings and timber floors, getting a lot of sunlight.
The property, which has a central bathroom, features air conditioning and an alarm system and is expected to go to auction on October 6.
