Couple who won massive £2m ‘dream’ home in £10 raffle have put it up for sale

A couple who won a £2.5million house beyond their “wildest dreams” have put the property up for sale.

Jade and her partner landed the beach-front Kent property for only £10 when they won an Omaze draw just under a year ago.

The couple from the Midlands also landed £50,000 to help furnish the 9,000 square-foot property.

However, after less than 12 months in the Kingsdown mansion, which is called The Gunnery and situated between Deal and Dover, the pair have decided to cash in.

And they could be set for another bonus payday, with the house on the market for £2.65million – meaning they will net an extra £150,000 if the asking price is met.

At the time of their win, Jade told KentOnline: "It's beyond our wildest dreams.

"There will never be quite enough words to describe how this whole experience has felt to me and my family.

"I can't believe it. I'm actually physically shaking because it's unbelievable."

The Sun reports that The Gunnery offers a "unique" 1.5 acres with180-degree vistas of The Channel and stunning White Cliffs of Dover.

The agent, Strutt and Parker, wrote in a description of the property: "On arriving in the entrance hall, one is immediately aware of the unique and special nature of this exceptional and individual home.

"A central passageway leads to the main living space – a room with three distinct areas and floor to ceiling windows on two sides affording the most stunning sea views."

The Gunnery was originally crafted from a former second World War gun emplacement and salutes its history with an ante chamber with original gun emplacements feature in the lounge.

The master bedroom features a wraparound terrace so residents can catch the sun at any time of day, while also boasting an en-suite bathroom and private dressing room.

Other features of the property include a private sunken courtyard and a cinema room, while the local area is perfect for coastal cliff walks and sailing, as well as being in close proximity to three golf courses.
