It's back to Cornwall for the second Omaze property prize draw of 2023. After a series of "cheaper" prizes, this one has jumped in value and is being pitched at a lovely £4.5million. Located on the River Fowey this incredible waterfront property has it's own mooring pitch and unparalleled views. In case you're interested Dawn French sold a Fowey home during 2022 to biotech entrepreneur Sir Christopher Evans. It's not this particular home but it gives you an idea of the kind of owners who can be found in prime locations along the river. The specific location of this home isn't known although we're pretty sure our Win A House visitors will discover anything and everything about it quicker than we can. We've done a few searches for Fowey River properties and a Google image search but haven't managed to find anything useful as yet. Check out the comments below.
About The Property
As you'd expect this is a stunning property and it looks safe from any flooding issues that may arise (at least just from the images). The property is spread over three floors with views being made available from many of them. The top floor comprises four bedrooms all with their own en-suite. The middle floor is the main living area and has a terrace along the whole of the waterfront area. Bedroom 5 is on this floor whilst bedroom 6 is on the ground floor. This seems to be self contained. The property also has an annex with a handful of storage rooms plus a Yoga Studio! A £100,000 cash prize will be included though to help you settle in or hang on to it long enough to sell so that's at least something. All furnishings are included. If you win and are thinking about rental opportunities then Omaze suggests that you can realise between £5000 and £7000 per month.
How To Enter The Competition
Tickets for the competition cost £10 for 15 entries. Unfortunately you can't purchase less than £10 worth of tickets. Other ticket packages cost £25 (40 entries), £50 (85 entries) and £150 (320 entries). A recent new option is the subscription service. Pay £10 a month for 30 entries. Do check the terms before siging up for this! For a free entry you can send a postcard or envelope to the address given on the website. This is worth doing as "once a postal entry has been processed it will be entered in to the next available draw and all subsequent draws until the final Grand Prize drawing". Postal entries have an equal chance of winning as any one paid entry. If a postal entry wins a prize there will be no further purchase or payment necessary to be notified of the win or to receive the prize.
As we mentioned in the other competitions, we think that it's worth entering this Omaze competition as the prize is guaranteed even if not enough tickets are sold. This means there will be a home winner and no competition extensions. Additionally there are early bird entry prizes on offer and the chance to win weekly cash prizes. For example enter before 12th March 2023 (a longer time frame than usual) and you could win a Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe. Look out for other additional prizes that are offered as incentives for you to enter during the course of the promotion. In terms of good causes, Marie Curie Cancer Care will also benefit from ticket sales. Omaze has guaranteed a minimum total payment of £100,000 for the charity. Note that the competition is open to UK residents only.
There's not much to say about Omaze's property prize draws that we haven't already said. What makes this particular prize draw a little bit more interesting is whether it's effected by the new promotions from Raffle House and Tramway Path (who will be launching a new draw this week). Alternatively will these platforms benefit from Omaze raising the house prize draw profile once again. One thing that we did note with the London II property is that Omaze seemed to do a little less advertising (either that or we just didn't see that many ads on TV). Instead it looks like they focused or at least tested how offering extra prizes (e.g. two Minis for Valentines) and subscriptions effect interest. Anyway back to the house - it looks a great property but we suspect that as with other prizes they're great to win but costly to own and run.
