New details about a multi-million pound house draw in Somerset have been revealed today.
Omaze UK, a fundraising company which offers prizes across the UK such as houses, cars and cash, has announced that its next prize up for grabs will be a six-bedroom home near Bath.
The house, which is eight miles away from Bath, is described as an “idyllic” countryside retreat.
Electric gates open onto a gravel drive leading up to the property, framed by a stone-walled Italianate garden.
Entering the house, there is a spacious reception hall with wood panelling and a curved staircase.
There are period features throughout the homes, including ornate cornicing and a stone fireplace.
The main hub of the house is an open plan kitchen and family room, with a bespoke kitchen designed by Tom Howley, Miele appliances and a wine fridge, plus a larder cupboard.
Adjoining the kitchen is an orangery, divided into a dining area and a sitting room, with a double sided log burner, skylights and underfloor heating.
Completing the ground floor is a boot room, a utility room, a WC and a plant room.
Upstairs, the main bedroom includes an en-suite bathroom, built-in wardrobes and an air conditioning unit, while there are a further four bedrooms on this level.
The gardens and grounds include woodlands and fields, as well as lawns and herbaceous borders.
There is also a fruit garden, a greenhouse and a potting shed, a private well and a built-in gas barbecue, plus a tennis court.
To the north-west of the house is an oak framed triple garage and workshops.
The property is worth £3,250,000, and proceeds from the house draw will go to the RSPCA, with a guaranteed minimum donation of £1,000,000.
The draw is backed by actress and RSPCA ambassador Joanna Page, who said: “I’m incredibly pleased to be supporting the RSPCA, a charity that has been close to my heart for a long time.
“The RSPCA has been rescuing animals from neglect and cruelty for nearly 200 years and still continues to work hard to improve the lives of animals every single day.
“This is why the Omaze partnership is so important as the money raised will help the RSPCA to continue their vital work rescuing and rehabilitating over 100,000 animals in need each year.”
James Oakes, Chief International Officer at Omaze, commented: “We’re delighted to be partnering with the RSPCA again for our latest house draw in Somerset.
“By offering this magnificent property, along with £100,000 in cash, we’re giving people the chance to live mortgage and rent free for the rest of their life - as well as raising money for charities whilst introducing them to brand new audiences that they otherwise wouldn't reach.
“We’re tremendously proud that the Omaze community has already raised £22,250,000 for good causes across the UK.”
