Plun­kett home to raise funds for Royal Fly­ing Doc­tor Ser­vice

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Coastal & Country -

A NEWLY built Bus­sel­ton home is be­ing sold to raise funds for the Royal Fly­ing Doc­tor Ser­vice (RFDS).

It is the first time that a house has been built in the South-west to solely raise funds for the RFDS, which faces grow­ing de­mand for both its aeromed­i­cal and pri­mary health­care ser­vices.

The im­pres­sive four-bed­room, two-bath­room home was do­nated and built by Plun­kett Homes.

It has a chic beach house de­sign that was in­spired by the re­laxed South-west life­style.

Plun­kett South-west gen­eral man­ager Brian Gar­a­vanta said the home had been spe­cially de­signed to al­low for side ac­cess, en­abling a boat or car­a­van to be parked.

“There’s also a front veranda with space for a cou­ple of chairs, so you can take in the am­bi­ence of the man-made lake just down the road and watch peo­ple hav­ing fun with their model boats,” he said.

“It also in­cludes a study, home the­atre and a huge liv­ing and din­ing area.”

The home is on a 480sq m block, do­nated by Provence Es­tate.

The es­tate has more than 36ha of lakes, park­lands, play­grounds and pic­nic ar­eas, is min­utes from the Bus­sel­ton town cen­tre and is close to some of the re­gion’s great beaches, forests, vine­yards and tourist at­trac­tions.

“The lucky owner of the char­ity home will have views to the lake and a fu­ture park, a beau­ti­ful set­ting well suited to a range of buy­ers in­clud­ing fam­i­lies and busy re­tirees,” Provence Es­tate man­ager Alan Abel said.

RFDS chief ex­ec­u­tive Gra­hame Mar­shall said they were grate­ful for the sup­port of Plun­kett Homes and Provence Es­tate.

“There is steady, con­tin­ued de­mand for RFDS ser­vices, with those ser­vices cur­rently be­ing de­liv­ered at record lev­els, which means we need to pur­chase up to two new air­craft ev­ery year, to con­tinue to be at the fore­front of in­no­va­tion in re­mote health care de­liv­ery and de­velop in­no­va­tive so­lu­tions,” he said.

“There were nearly 900 pa­tient re­trievals in the South­west dur­ing the past 12 months, an aver­age of 17 per week, and we must con­tinue to an­tic­i­pate and bet­ter meet the needs of all West Aus­tralians who re­quire the ser­vices of the RFDS.”

The home on Gigondas Street, Yalyalup, is open for view­ing on Satur­days and Sun­days from 1-5pm.

For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact sell­ing agent John Krikken from Bus­sel­ton Land & Es­tate Agency on 0429 931 188 or 9752 1888.
