That’s the choice you’ll have to make if you’re the winner of yourtown draw #471. Would you prefer a life of elegant luxury in one of Sydney’s most popular neighbourhoods, or a spectacular retreat on the beach?
Both are worth $1.6 million and include a nice bit of gold bullion to sweeten the pot. You’ll be able to move right into either residence, and have the means to pay for a few extras like a new car, boat or perhaps even one of each. You certainly won’t need to use your gold for furnishings, appliances or interior design because either way, your new home comes fully equipped, decorated, and ready to move in.
Annandale begins only five kilometres from the centre of Sydney, slightly to the west of the city’s core. The north end of the suburb lies on Sydney Harbour’s Rozelle Bay, while the suburb of Stanmore marks its southern boundary. The residents of this lively and eclectic community enjoy its many heritage listed buildings, fine churches, and live music venues.
The architecture of the area dates to the colonial era, and Annandale has a rich history and a strong sense of its own unique identity. The iconic Annandale Hotel is a mecca for contemporary music lovers, while those with a taste for literature will tell you that Mark Twain lived for awhile in the home of Sir Henry Parkes on Johnston Street. Tradition and innovation comfortably coexist in this charming and enticing corner of Sydney’s inner sanctum.
They say location is everything, and the first option in draw #471 is a gorgeous terrace on a tree-lined street that’s within easy walking distance of shops, cafes, restaurants, boutiques and transportation. You’ll enjoy all the amenities and conveniences of urban living in a home that’s bursting with charm and character.
The Terrace at 3/13 Johnston Street, Annandale
This home has great curb appeal, set back from the street by a landscaped stretch of lawn and garden. The distinctive iron-work railings and accents give the crisp white exterior a touch of grandeur, and you’ll be delighted by what you’ll find behind the welcoming entryway.

In fact, the Gold Coast has almost 700 playgrounds, and you’ll find several of the best right here in Miami.
