Excitement builds as works begin on the 2023 Telethon Home

Get a first look at this year’s Telethon home – a perfect blend of elegance and modern design that is just a short walk to the beach.

Building has begun on the spacious four-bedroom family home in Madora Bay, less than an hour from Perth and just 7km from the heart of Mandurah.

Once again developer Satterley donated the land in its new Seaside Estate, and the Home Group donated the complete design and build which will not only become one family’s dream home but also benefit thousands of other families when the proceeds from the sale go to Telethon.

The concrete slab is already down with works estimated to be finished in August and ready for home opens by October – sold just in time for the 2023 Telethon weekend where the sale proceeds will be revealed.

The home will have a major emphasis on open plan living, according to the Home Group chief executive Anthony Silvestro.

The spacious open plan living area has been designed to maximise space and account for natural light.

The kitchen is a chef’s dream, equipped with state-of-the-art appliances, Della Vita cabinetry, and a large stone island bench that serves as the perfect centrepiece for entertaining guests or hosting family gatherings.

This home also features four generously sized bedrooms, including a luxurious master suite complete with a walk-in robe and a resort style ensuite bathroom.

The additional bedrooms offer plenty of space for children, guests, and even a dedicated home office.

The large 450sqm block is located just a few minutes walk from the beach, multiple parks and in close proximity to the new Madora Bay Primary School.

“It’s going to be a forever home that’s going to work for anyone that’s looking to live in this amazing community,” Mr Silvestro said.

“We’re thrilled to be part of the Telethon Home again and to be able to contribute to this amazing cause – it’s a really rewarding experience.”

Satterley chief executive Nigel Satterley said it was the company’s 50th year supporting Telethon.

We are pleased to partner with Home Group again this year to provide another beautiful Telethon Home located in our popular Seaside community, Madora Bay,” he said.

“It means a lot to us and what it does in the community and we’ve seen it grow very quickly over 50 years.

“We’ve seen it expand into very good causes to help families and children – this is a world class charity.”

The Telethon Home project has been central to the annual fundraiser and has contributed more than $27 million to help sick children.

2023 will be the 56th year of Telethon with the WA community raising more than $500 million to ensure a better life for children.

Telethon Weekend will be held on October 21 and 22.
