If you’re thinking you’d probably sell a home lottery win to become an instant millionaire, this draw will save you the trouble. On offer from the RSL is your choice of an exclusive property in Sydney’s Rose Bay neighbourhood or $2.3 million in gold bullion. If you don’t want the home, you’re free to take the money without ever having to list the property.
That decision may not be an easy one to make, however, once you’ve seen this beautiful home. It’s a two-bedroom apartment overlooking the water with postcard views of Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. Walk to Rose Bay Beach, watch the boats from your terrace, and enjoy a multitude of shopping and dining options minutes from your front door.
If you’re the lucky winner of draw 368, would you take the gold or the luxurious residence?
A View of the Harbour
The prize home was established in 2018, a two-bedroom luxury residence in a striking low-rise building near the waterfront. From the entryway, you can look down the length of the home to the spectacular view of the harbour and Sydney skyline. The left half of the residence is a large open plan living area that includes a fireplace, contemporary kitchen and generous dining room. Floor to ceiling glass doors lead onto the terrace which has both an alfresco dining area and casual outdoor lounge.
The other half of the home contains a master bedroom, a retreat, a second bedroom and a full bathroom. The retreat also opens onto the terrace and is filled with natural light. The marbled bathroom includes both a deep tub and walk-in shower. Timbered floors in the main living area add a luxurious overlay to a home that’s got plenty of classy fixtures and accent pieces.
You could simply take the $2.3 million in gold, but the home is certain to increase in value and is situated in an enviable location that makes it both an ideal urban retreat and terrific investment property. If you’re the lucky winner, making up your mind on which way to go won’t be easy.
