The newest draw from yourtown promises one lucky winner a fabulous view, and it will be up to you to decide whether you want to gaze over the Sydney skyline or across the green canopy of the Sunshine Coast hinterland. Both first prize options are worth $1.6 million and come with additional gold bullion and all furnishings and electricals.
The Sunshine Coast retreat is located in Buderim with four bedrooms and a spectacular outdoor living area. The home in Sydney is a two-bedroom penthouse spread over two floors featuring a private rooftop terrace and spa. You’ll be living the high life whether you’re ensconced in your treetop sanctuary or relaxing high above the city. The Sydney option comes with $100,000 in gold bullion, and you’ll have $150,000 to spend if you choose the Sunshine Coast.
A Home Above the Trees
The home in Buderim is about ten minutes from Mooloolaba and the famed beaches of the Sunshine Coast. This community of just under 40,000 residents sits on the side of a mountain overlooking the ocean and the natural beauty of the hinterland. You’ll be close to the Buderim Forrest Park and all local services and amenities, with the many attractions of the area within easy reach.
No detail has been overlooked in the layout and design of this million-dollar residence. On the ground floor, the open living area opens onto an al fresco and sun deck with panoramic hinterland and ocean views. There’s a gorgeous pool alongside and even a fire pit for chilly evenings. Upstairs, you’ll find four large bedrooms and a media room with a full entertainment system and wall-mounted screen. If you want to work at home, there’s a dedicated office with an expansive desk that stretches over two walls.

A Penthouse in the Heart of Sydney
Located just 4 km south of the Sydney CBD, Alexandria is a suburb with a rich history. Many of its fine old buildings are listed on the State Heritage Register and it was once the largest industrial district in the country, know in the 1940s as the “Birmingham of Australia”. The area is now home to quiet residential neighbourhoods that are remarkably well insulated from the hubbub of the inner city.
The design of the prize home reflects the area’s industrial past while providing a perfect example of the community’s more recent gentrification. The two-storied apartment was established in 2016, a modern penthouse that pays tribute to the past with exposed girders and textured walls. The rooftop terrace comes complete with a spa and viewing deck, allowing you to look over the Sydney skyline as you relax with friends and indulge in your new millionaire lifestyle.

Here Are Your Dates
The yourtown Prize Home Draw #476 closes on Wednesday, 23 May 2018 at 10pm AEST. The draw will be held on Friday, 25 May 2018 at 10am AEST at 5 Cordova Street, Milton QLD 4064.
Members of the public are always invited to attend the draw, so why not drop by and experience the excitement in person. You could be leaving with the keys to your retreat in the hinterland or a penthouse apartment in Sydney!
Winners are notified by registered mail following the draw. The list of winners will also be published in “The Australian” on Tuesday 29 May 2018. You can also see if you’ve won by checking on this site shortly after the draw.
Prize Homes Not Open for Public Viewing
Unfortunately, neither of the two prize homes in draw #476 will be open for public inspection prior to the draw. If you’d like to check out their location, however, you’re always welcome to drive by and take a look at what could be your new neighbourhood.
The 4-bedroom home in the Sunshine Coast hinterland is located at 14 Dawson Parade, Buderim QLD 4556.
The 2-bedroom Sydney penthouse is located at 504/14 Birmingham Street, Alexandria NSW 2015.
How Will You Choose?
Even without the gold bullion, design packages and other add-ons, each of the two prize homes is worth well over a million dollars. That means regardless of which option you choose, you’ll be a millionaire if you’ve got the winning ticket on May 25th.
If your decision is going to be based on renting out the home and keeping it as a long-term investment, both will provide you with a healthy annual return. The Sydney penthouse is in a prime inner-city location and comes with amenities that are very difficult to find – like two parking spaces that close to the CBD. The Bunderim home is in one of the hottest markets in Queensland, and there’s a tight vacancy rate for rentals throughout the Sunshine Coast. That means you’ll have your pick of tenants and can charge top dollar for a fully furnished home of this calibre.
Putting the home on the market will open a world of possibilities but keeping it for awhile will increase your winnings down the road. As property prices in both locations continue to rise, so too will the value of your prize. Of course, moving into either home sets you up for a mortgage-free life and you’ll still have a mass of gold bullion to spend along the way.
Only 380,000 Tickets Will be Sold
Fewer tickets will be sold in Draw 476 which increases your chance of winning either the penthouse or the home on the Sunshine Coast. Buying multiple tickets in a ticket book will also add gold bullion to the first prize package if you’re the lucky winner.
