A DREAM home at Mirvac’s Osprey Waters goes under the hammer on Saturday, May 7 with all profits going to Make-a-Wish Australia.

The custom designed three-bedroom, two-bathroom home is just a short stroll from Peel Inlet, hectares of landscaped parkland, playgrounds and foreshore reserve.

The contemporary single storey home includes master bedroom and ensuite, two spacious bedrooms and main bathroom, generous study, laundry, double garage and large open plan living area with dining and kitchen opening to an alfresco area.

Osprey Waters includes 470 homes on the banks of Peel Inlet and is designed to connect residents with the water.

The reserve price is just $350,000.

Cachet Homes director Cliff Kearns said the home incorporated the best of their award winning designs and quality craftsmanship.

Make-A-Wish wishes are vital, build resilience and, together with medical treatment, give seriously ill kids the best chance of survival.

Make-A-Wish Australia chief executive Gerard Menses said that, as an organisation funded solely by donations, the support from Mirvac and Cachet Homes would go a long way in helping grant 2000 wishes a year in the next 10 years.

Make-A-Wish recipient and Mandurah girl Brianna Collins has been diagnosed with cystic fibrosis and her wish to go on a Cairns adventure that included transport to the airport in a pink Hummer recently came true.

Brianna selflessly dedicates her time to fundraising and creating awareness about her illness and helping various charities.

The charity home is open for viewing on Saturdays and Sundays between 1pm-2pm and Mondays from 5pm-6pm until the auction.

Every day, six families around Australia receive the news their child has a serious illness.

That is 2000 families a year in need of the healing power of a wish – four times the number Make-A-Wish is able to reach.

Make-A-Wish receives no government funding and can only continue with the support and generosity of the community, individuals, business partners and a network of volunteers.
