The prize homes in the RSL Art Union Prize Home Lottery are always among the most exclusive and beautifully designed properties out there. Many lucky winners move right in and start a whole new life without ever having to worry about a mortgage. For others, however, their journey to riches begins with putting the home on the market. They may not want to move their family or could simply have other plans for their incredible windfall. Either way, they have to go through the process of selling their new property in order to benefit from its value.
With draw 356, you won’t even have to list the home if you decide you’d rather have the cash. You’ll have 10 days to make up your mind, and if you want to be an instant millionaire, you can walk away with $2 million in gold. It’s just that easy. Whether you take the home or go for the gold, this is a terrific opportunity to have it your own way and is just too good to miss.

Luxurious Sydney Living
It is often said that Sydney’s a great city to live in – if you can actually afford it. House prices close to the CBD have skyrocketed, and it can be difficult to find even a modest piece of property that’s anywhere near the city centre. The prize home in draw 356 is located in Lilyfield, less than 10 minutes from the Sydney Harbour Bridge. If location is everything, this one’s got it all.
Lilyfield is an inner-city suburb that’s grown from a working-class neighbourhood to a vibrant community filled with renovated workers’ cottages and grand old homes. It lies slightly to the west of the CBD, bordered by Annandale, Rozelle and Leichhardt. Iron Cove forms the western boundary, a large bay on the Parramatta River which is the main tributary of Sydney Harbour. You’ll find all the amenities and services you’ll ever need close at hand, including many verdant parks, bicycle paths, shopping and public transportation options. May Street is a quiet street that runs off Balmain Road, your main thoroughfare to the A40 and the city beyond.
An Immaculate Townhouse in Lilyfield
The prize home in draw 356 is a contemporary take on a classic Sydney terrace. Newly built, it features modern styling and an innovative design that gives the home an airy and loft-like ambiance. The al fresco opens onto a fenced backyard, something that’s hard to find in the inner-city. Beyond the pocket lawn there’s private off-street parking for two vehicles. The master bedroom balcony provides excellent views of the city skyline, and there’s another private balcony at the front of the house, off the third bedroom.
The entryway to the main floor opens onto a cozy retreat, with a study nook tucked under the timbered staircase which leads to the second level. Beyond that, you’ll find an open kitchen and living area with fully-retractable glass doors opening to the al fresco. The kitchen has all the modern European appliances you could ask for, with rose-gold taps and a full butler’s pantry.
Upstairs, there are three generously sized bedrooms with an ensuite off the master. All have large robes, and the shared bathroom has an exquisite stone tub and sink. In all, your home includes three bedrooms, two living areas, two bathrooms, and a powder room and separate laundry on the ground level. The entire home has been professionally styled with almost $60,000 worth of furnishings and appliances. And to top it all off, this option includes another $50,000 in gold bullion to spend any way you please.
If all of this isn’t exactly what you’re looking for, you can always choose to take your prize entirely in gold bullion. That’s $2 million for you to take to the bank and kick-start a whole new millionaire lifestyle.

The prize home in draw 356 will unfortunately not be available for public inspection. If you happen to be in the Sydney area, however, you can always take a drive through Lilyfield to see the property from the street. You’ll find the modern townhouse at 10a May Street, Lilyfield, NSW 2040.
Which Option Will You Choose?
If you’ve always wanted to live in the heart of Sydney, within walking distance of light rail and close to all the trendy restaurants, cafes, boutique shopping and famed nightlife of this world-class city, you’ll probably be itching to pack your bags. If you’re ready to move, this home is ready to welcome you.
A home in Sydney, and especially one this well located, is always a good investment. If you don’t want to live in the home, you can make a robust second income by renting out the property. You won’t have any difficulty finding good tenants in a tight rental market and can expect to receive approximately $62,400 a year if you do decide to rent out the home. By hanging onto the residence for a few years, you’ll be able to capitalize even further as property values continue to rise. When you are ready to sell, you’ll have an investment that’s both given you additional spending money each year and grown in value over time.
Then there’s the option of just taking the gold. With $2 million to spend, you could build your own perfect home anywhere in the country. How about paying off your mortgage and living the rest of your life with no money worries? Chuck in your job and take early retirement, or even start your own business. Travel the world, help out your family members, or just make some wise investments and live the good life as you watch your windfall grow. If you’ve got the lucky ticket in draw 356, you’ll wake up a multi-millionaire, no matter which option you choose.
Get Your Tickets for a $2 Million First Prize
It’s not often that you get the option to take your winnings entirely in gold bullion, and this draw is likely to sell quickly. Be sure to make your ticket purchases before they’re gone and remember that buying a ticket book is always great value. You’ll get an extra free ticket by buying a $20 book, and even more free chances when you buy additional tickets.
