If you were offered a luxury home on the Mornington Peninsula and another in Lennox Head near Byron Bay, do you know which one you’d choose?

Before you make up your mind, you’ll have to consider all the fabulous add-ons and amenities that come with each one, and your final decision won’t be easy. The home near Melbourne is close to the beach and within commuting distance of the city, but the residence in northern NSW comes with $50,000 in gold bullion and a great swimming pool.

Not easy, is it?

The Residence on the Mornington Peninsula

The first option in draw 488 is a $1.6 million first prize package that includes a classic Hamptons style home in Mount Martha. This community on the Mornington Peninsula is just sixty kilometres from the Melbourne CBD and is a very popular seaside destination.

The home features four bedrooms spread over two levels of very classy living. There’s both a comfy lounge on the upper level and a retreat/media room below that provides lots of room for family members to have their own space. The master bedroom occupies a private corner of the upper floor and has its own private balcony and ensuite. Throw in a luxurious design package and fabulous kitchen and you’ve got a home that will be very difficult to walk away from.
