From exotic holidays to expensive beauty products to designer fashion, everyone’s idea of a perfect prize is different.
However, we can’t imagine many people who wouldn’t be thrilled to win a gorgeous, historic property – and now a new competition is giving you the opportunity to do just that.
The owners of Dancers Hill house, a stunning Georgian grade II listed manor located just 14 miles from Central London, are offering the public the chance to win their £5.25 million home.
The lucky victor will become the proud owners of the six-bedroom property, which boasts its own gym, cinema and even a wine room, all set in four acres of impeccably manicured grounds.
‘Dancers Hill House has been a wonderful family home,’ Melanie Walsh, who has lived in the property for the last 27 years, tells YOU.co.uk. ‘We have had family gatherings and parties – one of our three sons even had his wedding here. Now they all have families of their own.’
‘”One must always know when to move on”, my late mother would say,’ Melanie adds. ‘She was right – with our sons gone, just the two of us in this grand house was ridiculous.’
But facing a difficult post-Brexit property market and stamp duty issues, the family decided to oft opted for a more creative solution than simply putting Dancers Hill House on the market.
So, for the price of £12.50 (plus a £1 booking fee), you can buy a ticket to enter the competition and put yourself in the running to win the property. There’s no mortgage, no stamp duty to worry about, and even if you win and somehow don’t fancy yourself as the new lady of the manor, you even have the right to even sell it on.
All you have to do to enter is answer the question: ‘Who was the reigning Monarch on Christmas Day, the year Dancers Hill House was built?’ correctly. The competition will close on 16th December 2018 (or earlier should all of the tickets be sold).
Now, if you’ll excuse us, we’re off to put our names into this truly incredible hat…
