Telethon home price is right for Olivia

Joondalup Weekender - - News -

OLIVIA White­head, of Alki­mos, has been in cel­e­bra­tory mode this week.

De­spite her ten­der years, she cor­rectly guessed the price of the Telethon auc­tion home in Jin­dalee: $650,000.

Cen­tury 21 Gold Key Re­alty prin­ci­pal Justin O’Con­nell han­dled the auc­tion and pre­sented Olivia with an iPad for win­ning the com­pe­ti­tion by nail­ing the price.

WAN­NEROO 42 Ban­derra Street Mid $500,000s Bed­rooms: 4 Bath­rooms: 2 Garage: 1 Agency: Plat­inum Re­alty Group Con­tact: Dei­dre Peacock on 0438 606 997

ON an el­e­vated corner 681sq m block, this two-storey home is ready for a new fam­ily to make it home.

Own­ers Dou­glas and his wife said they were the third own­ers of the 1977 build.

“The orig­i­nal owner was a car­pen­ter by trade and did the in­te­rior wood­work him­self,” Dou­glas said.

“The home was one of the first in Wan­neroo to have a sec­ond storey and hence it earned it­self the name ‘the man­sion’, as it sat upon the hill sur­rounded by sin­gle-storey homes.”

They in­stalled a new en­try point into the home from the drive­way to al­low for easy ac­cess, as well as erected a front brick wall to pro­vide pri­vacy to the rear yard, up­dated the light­ing and painted over green and blue walls with modern, neu­tral tones of soft cof­fee and beige.

Cen­tral to the home is the spec­tac­u­lar dou­ble-height fam­ily room with ful­l­length win­dows al­low­ing views of the be­low-ground pool, gar­dens and out­door en­ter­tain­ing area.

Step up to the tiled din­ing and kitchen area, with fur­ther liv­ing space in the spa­cious, car­peted the­atre room.

The mas­ter bed­room with en­suite is down­stairs, while a jar­rah stair­case leads up to three mi­nor bed­rooms with views across the trees.

Com­plet­ing the home is the fam­ily bath­room, laun­dry, car­port and drive­way with room for many ve­hi­cles.
