The home option in draw 368 is a two-bedroom apartment overlooking Rose Bay, just 8 km from the center of the city. You’ll be able to see the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House from your terrace and can stroll down to Rose Bay Beach in a matter of minutes. You can even walk to the Royal Sydney Golf Club, the Lyne Park Tennis Center or the Woollahra Sailing Club.

On the other hand, you may already have big plans for what you’d do with a huge lottery win and aren’t looking for an urban dream home. If that’s the case, you can choose to simply take the lot in gold bullion and spend it any way you please. That’s a $2.3 million windfall that certainly doesn’t come around too often. Choose a luxurious new home or take the gold – the choice will be entirely yours if you’re the lucky winner of this terrific draw.
Opulent Urban Living
Rose Bay lies just a few kilometres east of the Sydney CBD on the coastline that runs between Point Piper and the Hermitage Foreshore Reserve. Seaplanes have been landing at what is now Rose Bay Water Airport since 1938 and offer scenic flights over the city and harbour. The beach at the eastern end of the suburb has safe swimming and is also known to be very dog friendly. This is an affluent neighbourhood of about 10,000 residents and an important center for Sydney’s Jewish community. It’s also home to several celebrities including, perhaps most famously, Russel Crowe.
With all of Sydney’s world-class attractions just a short drive away, you’ll have no end of things to see and do close to home if you choose this prize option. Whether you want to spend the afternoon at the museum, take a leisurely walk in the Royal Botanic Gardens or go on a shopping spree through the city’s boutique outlets, you can do it all from your base in Rose Bay. You’ll be able to enjoy the best of upscale urban living from a home that’s valued at over $2.1 million.
And if none of that sounds like exactly what you’re looking for, you can always go for option two and simply take your $2.3 million prize in gold bullion.
The Home in Rose Bay
From Rose Bay, you can look west towards Sydney Harbour’s iconic landmarks, and the first thing you’ll appreciate about this spectacular apartment is the view. From your expansive alfresco terrace, you’ll have an unimpeded view of the bridge, Opera House, and Sydney skyline. The terrace comfortably seats six for dinner and has plenty of room for a cozy outdoor lounge. Floor to ceiling glazing means that you can also take in the panoramic sights from the open concept main living area.
The entryway opens onto this central space which includes a gourmet kitchen, dining area and lounge. You’ve got a lovely fireplace to take the chill off a winter evening and plush furnishings from which to enjoy it. The kitchen is very large, with built in appliances, an abundance of counter space and a breakfast bar. Enjoy intimate meals at the round dining table or take it all outside for a feast under the stars. Polished timbered floors and grey-blue accents create a warm and inviting living area that features a predominantly crisp white décor.
The master bedroom has a spacious wardrobe and opens onto the home’s lovely retreat. The retreat can be enclosed for movie nights or you can open the doors onto the terrace for a bright and breezy room from which to enjoy the view or curl up with a book. The second bedroom is also generously appointed and separated from the master by a full marbled bathroom with a soaking tub.
If you’ve always wanted to live in one of Sydney’s most exclusive neighbourhoods and have all the pleasures of urban living within minutes of your front door, this is the option for you. Absolute luxury in a low-rise building with terrific curb appeal and million-dollar views. Perfect.
Then again, $2.3 million in gold bullion could also be yours if you’d rather pass on the home and pocket your winnings.
