We all look forward to Christmas, but this year yourtown is giving you a little extra something to get excited about. This is their biggest draw of the year and as always, the home on offer is spectacular.

How would you like to wake up Christmas morning with nothing but surf and sunshine out of every window? You’ve got great odds of doing just that with a ticket in draw 482. That’s because the first prize package includes a stunning 3-bedroom home in Miami that fronts North Burleigh Beach. This new build has unimpeded views of the ocean and coast, all the way to the iconic skyline of Surfers Paradise. You’ll be steps away from the sand in a luxurious residence that’s been custom designed by celebrity stylist Darren Palmer. What a way to bring in the new year!

Along with the $3.25 million home, the winner also receives $100,000 in gold bullion. What would you do with that kind of windfall? This is a life-changing draw that could deliver the multi-million-dollar lifestyle of your dreams. Even if you’re not thinking of retirement or moving full-time to the Gold Coast just yet, the equity you’ll build up over time will have you set for life. Earn a healthy second income by renting out the property or choose to put it on the market for instant rewards. Any way you look at it, this is your chance to become a multi-millionaire.

You’ll need to be quick off the mark to secure your chance at winning this very special draw. Only 500,000 tickets are up for grabs and they’ll sell out quickly. Many of you were disappointed last year when the Christmas draw sold out early, so be sure to get your ticket books while they’re still available.

Forget dreaming of a white Christmas – this one could be covered in gold.

Living at the Beach

The Gold Coast has long been a magnet for visitors from across the country and around the world. They come for the sun, surf, active nightlife and multiple attractions. This is the country’s hub for amusement parks, golf courses and high-end boutique shopping. Whether you want to surf, fish, kayak, hike or simply sit on the boardwalk and people-watch, you can do it all on the Gold Coast.

Over half a million lucky residents get to call this part of the world home, and you could soon be one of them. Brisbane is only about an hour away, but it might as well be on another planet. Life at the beach is all about relaxing and setting your own pace. You’ve got the benefit of all the amenities and services you’ll find in the city without the hassle of urban living. The most stressful part of your day could soon be choosing whether to spend it on the beach or on a hike through the rainforests of the hinterland.

The community of Miami lies to the south of Surfers Paradise, in the Central Gold Coast. Walking the Gold Coast Oceanway that lies in front of the prize home will take you down the 2km length of Burleigh Beach to the Burleigh Head National Park. Walk the other way across the elevated boardwalk through Mick Shamburg Park and you’ll be on Miami Beach with nothing but soft white sand all the way to the Spit. Walking the 37 km stretch of the Gold Coast from the Spit to Point Danger will take you across some of the most scenic (and photographed) terrain in the country. Luckily, you’ll have the rest of your life to explore every café and hot-spot along the way so you won’t have to try and do it in one go!

If you’d rather save your strength for shopping, the Pacific Fair Shopping Centre is just up the road in Broadbeach Waters. It’s the biggest mall on the Gold Coast with a full range of luxury brands and a ton of activities to keep the kids busy while you browse. With $100,000 in gold bullion to spend, your first visit probably won’t be your last.

Your Home in Miami

The homes that line the coast and canals of the inland waterway are exclusive and highly sought-after. This is some of the most expensive real estate in Australia, and the $3 million prize home is no exception.

The newly constructed low-rise building that houses the prize residence sits right on the north end of Burleigh Beach. The lift doors open onto an expansive living area with floor to ceiling windows that show off the incredible view of the beach and Coral Sea. The front balcony spans the width of the home and the indoor living space flows effortlessly onto the al fresco and exterior lounge. The outdoor kitchen and fixed BBQ extend from the custom kitchen inside, with matching stone benchtops and wooden seats. It’s all designed for effortless entertaining and showcases the panoramic view of the coast.

In keeping with the airy and relaxed ambiance of the main living area, the lounge moves into a semi-enclosed media room with comfortable armchairs and a gorgeous bowed couch. yourtown has even included a Christmas tree with $1,000 worth of presents waiting beside the flat screen TV and entertainment system.

There are three bedrooms in all, each tucked into a separate corner of the home for added privacy. The master bedroom faces the beach and has a massive ensuite with surround marbled tiles, a deep soaking tub and walk-in shower. There’s also a twin walk-in robe with floor-to-ceiling storage options. The other two bedrooms are also well proportioned and filled with natural light.

The interior design of the home was styled by Darren Palmer and with a $90,000 budget for furnishings and electricals, the results are outstanding. This is a luxurious yet welcoming home that pairs the laid-back vibe of beachfront living with a level of opulence you’ll only find in a millionaire’s retreat.

Features of the Beachfront Home

Soft furnishings, a warm fawn décor with timbered accents, touches of royal blue and a contemporary design all combine to make this a truly lavish home. From the moment you take in the sweeping view of the ocean, you’ll feel like a million dollars. Well actually, you’ll feel more like 3 million.

The prize home is located at 2/296 The Esplanade, Miami QLD 4220
