Telethon home price is right for Olivia
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.

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.
