Osprey Waters Auction Home making wishes come true
A successful charity home auction held at Mirvac’s Osprey Waters masterplanned community raised an incredible $161,000 in support of Make-A-Wish® Australia.
The auction attracted a packed crowd on Saturday 7 May, including attendees Matt & Kim from The Block and local Mandurah Make-A-Wish recipient Brianna Collins, who watched spirited bidding for the beautifully designed 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home built by Cachet Homes.
Ex Fremantle Dockers ruckman, Daniel Bandy, officiated on behalf of Realmark Mandurah and delivered the keys to the successful buyers, Tracy and Keith Wilson.
"We couldn’t be happier,” said Ms Wilson. “We have got our perfect home in an absolutely beautiful location close to the Mandurah estuary, and the fact that we were also able to help Make-A-Wish Australia is such a great bonus,” she said.
Make-A-Wish Australia Chief Executive Officer Gerard Menses thanked Mirvac and Cachet Homes for the opportunity to be involved.
"The sale of this beautiful home will make a huge difference in helping us to achieve our aim of granting 2,000 wishes to seriously ill children each year within the next decade,” Mr Menses said.
Built in the unique community of Osprey Waters, the homesite is ideally located close to the estuary and just minutes from the heart of Mandurah. Mirvac’s Osprey Waters community consists of just 470 boutique homesites nestled along the banks of the Peel Inlet and is specifically designed to connect residents with the water through hectares of landscaped parkland, playgrounds and Foreshore Reserve.
“Many homebuyers have been attracted by the relaxed waterfront lifestyle on offer at Osprey Waters, resulting in a great outcome for Make-A-Wish Australia and the happy home owners,” said Mirvac Residential Development Director (WA), Paige Walker.
"Mirvac works hard to ensure that we are enriching the wider community in which we work and are very proud to be supporting Make-A-Wish Australia to continue bringing hope, strength and joy very sick children and teenagers,” Ms Walker said.
Director of Cachet Homes, Cliff Kearns, said, “It’s been such a pleasure to provide this home for Make-A-Wish.
“This home showcases the best of our award winning design and we are so pleased that the buyers found their dream home and that it delivered a great auction result to assist Make-A-Wish to make even more wishes come true,” he said.
