A young couple is raffling their £750,000 two-bed London property for just £2 a ticket as they look for a family home following the birth of their first child.
The home is a spacious Victorian property with an open plan layout, bay windows, high ceilings, bi-fold doors, built in wardrobes, a large private secret garden and space for king size beds!
The property is located a stone’s throw from Denmark Hill and is owned by Lucy Mieville, a 35-year-old nutritionist.
Lucy designed the interiors and said she loves the thought of passing it onto another young family to enjoy.
Lucy and her 36-year old husband James took the decision to raffle their 1,023 square foot home following the recent birth of their baby daughter.
Needing more space but concerned that they would face challenges selling their house due to the pandemic and amid a poorly performing London property market, they decided to raffle it instead.
Lucy said: “Following the birth of our beautiful daughter we realised we needed more bedrooms as we hope to have more children over the next few years.
“We love the area sandwiched between Brixton and Camberwell so decided to buy in 2015 and I’ve loved putting my heart and soul into designing the interiors and creating the home of my dreams.
“Now though, we want our family to grow and so need to sell but given events over the past few months we are worried that we might not be able to find a buyer.
“A number of people are raffling their homes, and Raffle House has just successfully awarded a property, so we thought we’d give it a go.
“And that we can do this while also supporting two incredible charities also played a big part in our decision to raffle our home.
“We hope the winner loves the house just as much as we do and gets to enjoy Christmas there as we have so many times.”
The competition is being run by Raffle House, which earlier this month awarded a £500,000 two-bed apartment in South East London to 27-year old Niomi Boontam from Bournemouth.
Benno Spencer, Raffle House CEO, said: “Lucy has done a great job of renovating the property so it’s no wonder we have already seen a large number of our existing customers purchase tickets.
“It is not only a tough time to sell a house in London but also to buy one with the economy sliding and people facing the possibility of pay cuts or worse, losing their jobs.
“Raffle House was founded on the premise of helping as many people get onto the property ladder as possible and we look forward to handing over the keys to this stunning home to our next winner.”
The £2 tickets for the competition can be purchased from the Raffle House website where entrants can take advantage of special offers for purchasing tickets in bulk.
Raffle House also awards £1,000 to one lucky player every week between now and when the competition closes on 30 November 2020.
In addition, 2.5% of ticket sales will be given to homelessness charities Centrepoint and Housing for Women, with Raffle House having already raised around £30,000 from previous competitions.
