The 19th century home measures 8,250 square feet and has a whopping 17 rooms, including 4 bedrooms, spread out over three stories. The picturesque cottage sits on a half-acre plot of land with a vegetable garden and fruit orchard. Hamilton has lived on the property for 20 years and has restored its historic fixtures over the years.
As for the odd way of selling such a real estate gem, Hamilton says that the home has been on the market for more than a year. Even after cutting 300,000 from the original listing, she still couldn’t find a buyer. Although the unconventional system of selling the home by raffle may be a little risky (she needs to sell 500,000 tickets to break even), she hopes to use the money to reinvest in her business and move to be closer to family.
The drawing is scheduled for the 15th of February. The lucky winner will have stamp duty and fees paid for them, and a portion of the proceeds from the drawing will be donated to charity.
