Happy ending near as charity house is put under contract

WHEN it didn't sell under the hammer last month, it appeared the Peet Charity House might not find a family to call it home.

But now one buyer is a step closer to living the great Australian dream after lodging a conditional contract with Remax Gold Gladstone.

The identity of the lucky buyer is expected to be released once the contract is settled.

Variety, the Children's Charity of Queensland's regional development manager Carly Quinn said it was exciting to see the house go under contract.

"We look forward to settlement when we can share the details with our community," Ms Quinn said.

"This will be a great outcome... and a perfect ending to the project."

Remax Gold co-owner Shane McLeod said he was delighted with the outcome.

"Charity House has been a fantastic project for the local community," Mr McLeod said.

All profits from the sale will be distributed between Variety Queensland, Gladstone Exodus Tutorial Centre, Rosebery Community Services and Gladstone Chaplaincy.
