Here we go again! Whilst other property platforms flounder, Omaze continues to give entrants the chance to win life changing homes as well as a host of other prizes. Not only are Omaze creating home winners they're also generating funds for charity and in this case they're supporting The RSPCA. The Cotswolds is our destination for prize draw number seven and as you'd expect it's yet another draw-dropping home up for grabs. The location is Leckhampton Hill, Cheltenham, and after a little digging we've found that it has been listed for sale although the sale price with the agent is not given. However Omaze are suggesting that the property - which is called Landscape and can be found on Daisy Bank Road - is currently valued at £3.5million although we understand it sold in 2021 for £3.75million. The agent by the way advertised the house as "without doubt one of Gloucestershire's finest residences"!
About The Property
The home boasts "six bedrooms, six ensuites, two living areas, a state-of-the-art kitchen and an incredible garden". The house comes fully-furnished with luxury furniture and tech. If all that wasn't enough there's a swimming pool, gym, cinema room and even an annexe which could be used as a home office. Images and a video tour of the property can be found on the Omaze website. There’s no mortgage, no stamp duty or conveyancing to pay. Omaze suggest that the property is perfect for holiday lets and could bank you an incredible £12,000 to £15,000 per month. One thing to remember is that big houses cost big money to run and again Omaze don't provide information regarding general costs such as council taxes etc. Having a millionaire's house is fine provided you can afford to own it! A £50,000 cash prize will be included though to help you settle in or hang on to it long enough to sell.
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). 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". Confusingly the terms state you can make one entry via the free entry route and then says that there is "no limit to the number of entries" made that way!
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 March 13th 2022 and you could win a Range Rover Velar. Look out for other incentive prize draws to encourage you to purchase tickets. In terms of good causes, The RPSCA 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.
With The Lake District House closing at the end of March it's no surprise to see Omaze rolling out another draw to overlap. Again they've found an amazing looking property in a popular area of the country and we expect they'll be plenty of interest. Even more so given that there really isn't the same amount of choice of house prize draws in 2022 as there was in 2020 and 2021. We did say we were tempted by the Lake District House but this one looks just as good perhaps even better. Mind it does look it requires a lot of upkeep, cleaning and maintenance - the £50K that comes as part of the prize package will probably vanish in garden upkeep costs in a week (we're kidding... two weeks).
