People have a last opportunity to view this year’s Telethon home as the auction of the coveted coastal property draws near.
The two-storey In-Vogue home, in the Eden Beach Estate 40 kilometres north of Perth, will be open for inspection this weekend and Monday before going under the hammer on October 22 as part of Telethon weekend.
Agent Justin O’Connell, of Century 21 Gold Key Realty, said an average of 100 groups had come through the four-bedroom, two-bathroom home each weekend since September. “The public have been impressed with everything about the home – from the outstanding quality of fixtures and fittings, the spacious practical design and the proximity to beach,” he said.
“As always the suppliers have put in the best of the best of their products and In-Vogue have nailed the design.”
The residence has been designed to take advantage of the coastal views, positioning the main living zone upstairs. A galley-style kitchen links to a scullery with dishwasher and overlooks the dining area, which leads out to a large balcony with built-in barbecue.
“I really like the upstairs balcony, it’s a very useable space that looks out over Satterley’s superb Eden Beach Estate and down to the coast,” Mr O’Connell said. “It’s a sensational outdoor living area.”
There is another living area downstairs, near the minor bedroom wing. This activity room is serviced by a kitchenette and opens to an al fresco area. There is also a carpeted home theatre and office off the entry.

In-Vogue general manager Jim Ilias said the modern cubist exterior made a statement and the 423-square-metre corner block was just 600 metres from the foreshore reserve.
“People love the upside-down design of this year’s home,” Mr Ilias said. “The open-plan kitchen, living and dining lead out on to a huge balcony which really makes the most of the park and ocean views afforded from the upper floor.
“Another popular feature is the breathtaking, open-tread, steel-spine staircase, which really sets this home apart. The staircase features a full-height, tiled wall, glass balustrade and statement light feature which adds both warmth and luxury to the home.
“As another Telethon weekend draws near, we are looking forward to watching the home go under the hammer and meeting the lucky bidders for whom this gorgeous house will become home.”
This is the 12th consecutive year that In-Vogue has built the metropolitan Telethon home, with proceeds going to the charity that aims to improve the lives of children and young people throughout Western .
Satterley Property Group and Ocean Springs Estate, along with Eden Beach Estate’s other development partners, donated the Jindalee block, which is opposite the future primary school and park.
This is the third time Eden Beach has been home to the Telethon fundraiser. Last year, the Telethon home on nearby Reflection Boulevard sold for $750,000.
