THE annual Telethon Home will be built for the first time in Perth’s Foothills – in Forrestfield.

Satterley and The Hales Estate have donated part- proceeds from the 450sq m block, with a two-storey home to be built by New Level Homes, part of the InVogue family and owned by JWH Group.

The main living areas will join an oversized alfresco area, making the most of the natural surroundings.

“We are so proud to be able to showcase our advanced build techniques and design innovation this year in our stunning New Level home,” InVogue general manager Jim Ilias said.

The home will be built along The Hales’ Evergreen Grove, which is near the parkland that will complement the entry to the estate.

The Hales will feature public open spaces, with all houses centred around a parkland, with existing marri and jarrah trees and Crumpet Creek.

Satterley chief executive Nigel Satterley said it was exciting to be able to have this year’s home in one of his company’s newest estates.

Construction in The Hales has recently finished on a new park and playground.

The subdivision is expected to be home to more than 1100 residents, providing a mix of single residential lots, terrace housing and group dwellings.

Mr Satterley and his wife Denise have been involved with Telethon for more than 40 years. He has been the Patron of Telethon Speech and Hearing, a beneficiary of Telethon, for the past nine years.

JHW Group has designed and built the metropolitan and regional Telethon Home for the past 13 years.

Managing director Julian Walter said “again we are very proud to be involved in this very worthy cause”.

This year’s Telethon weekend is October 20 and 21, with the home auction on October 21 at 11am.

Telethon home design features: four bedroom, two bath, study, theatre, massive open plan living, dining and kitchen.
