Successful Auction Day Sees The Telethon Home Go Under The Hammer
2018 Residential Building WA Telethon Home draws in big numbers and the delighted new owner looks forward to calling The Hales estate home.
Living the urban by nature dream has become a reality for the new owner of this year’s Telethon Home.
The stunning 2-storey home was generously built and donated by New Level Homes, part of the InVogue family and owned by JWH Group with Satterley and The Hales Estate kindly donating part proceeds from the 450sqm block.
Over 650 people flocked to The Hales estate property and enjoyed the garden party festivities of the free event with a special appearance from Fat Cat. It was a great day out for families with food trucks and community stalls, a live DJ and plenty for the kids to do including plant decorating and planting, meeting wildlife animals, arts and crafts and face painting.
Geoff Baldwin from RE/MAX WA said “It is great to see such a large crowd come out to show their support for a great cause, with many registered bidders on the day all trying to secure the home”. While the ‘successful’ bidders could not meet the requirements of the sale we are proud to announce that Dr Aji, who was one of the active bidders, offered the $730, 000 for the two-storey, four-bedroom, two-bathroom home in Forrestfield, 15km east of Perth.
“Adding $730,000 to Telethon’s record-breaking fundraising total is a great result of the kids,” JWH Group Managing Director”, Julian Walter said.
For the first time ever, the Telethon Home was built in Perth’s foothills. Designed with contemporary liveability in mind, The Hales will feature quality public open spaces, with all houses centred around a substantial strip of parkland. The Hales is landscaped to retain the natural features of the site; built around existing native Marri and Jarrah trees and the trickling waters of Crumpet Creek.
Built by Residential Building WA who have being building the Metropolitan Telethon home for the past 13 years, this custom designed home blends coastal and country design elements seamlessly.
“Building the Telethon Home is a project we are incredibly passionate about. With the support of our staff, trades and long-term suppliers, Residential Building WA and the JWH Group has raised well over $13.9 million for Telethon.” Mr Walter said.
Satterley CEO, Nigel Satterley said “It has been a fantastic result to raise much needed funds for Telethon and we gladly welcome Dr Aji to one of our newest estates The Hales. We look forward to partnering with Telethon and Residential Building WA again next year to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to help improve the lives of children and young people across WA.”
Since 1968, Channel 7’s Telethon has raised over $300 million via the people of WA and continues to financially support the medical and social wellbeing of children and young people and fund research into children’s diseases.
