Charity home ready to go under the hammer

COFFS Harbour's "Rescue House" is about to become someone's dream home.

The luxury house in Sapphire Beachfront Estate will be auctioned on Saturday, with all proceeds to go to the Destiny Rescue charity which helps rescue and rehabilitate girls in the sex trade in Asia.

The Armstrong Architects-designed home was many months in the planning and eight months in construction, using mostly donated or at-cost labour and building supplies.

The Edge Real Estate and LJ Hooker Coffs Harbour have spent the past month marketing the home, with strong turnouts at open homes. Several contracts have been issued ahead of Saturday's auction, with The Edge's Jason Burnett and LJ Hooker's Ryan Hopkins both looking forward to a good sale result.

While the auction will begin at 1pm, there will be a host of activities on site from 11am.

The Rescue House will be open for inspection with sausage sizzle and representatives from Destiny Rescue and Coffs-based charity Frontier Projects also on site.

Destiny Rescue Australian CEO Michelle Winser will have information about what the charity does, the countries it works in and how to help.

Rescue House is located at Lot 23 Oceanfront Dr, Sapphire Beachfront Estate.
