Today, take a look at this beautiful brand-new Queenslander style property, isn’t it gorgeous? It’s 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, set on just over an acre of prime real estate here.

It’s incredible and tell you how to get in the running to win this place right after we take a look at what the weather’s doing around Australia for you on this Wednesday.
Tim: Well the Endeavour Foundation is celebrating with their anniversary lottery home and, this is it. It is spectacular this morning, they have tossed me the keys and they want me to take you inside for open-house to show you around, but, as I mentioned $10 is all it takes if you want to buy a ticket in the lottery, potentially you could call this home.

Tim: Oh well Deb they call it the Sunshine Coast for a reason and what a sunrise we have just had out here on the back deck of a very beautiful home in Montville we are this morning, in the Hinterland of the Sunshine Coast around half an hour inland from the beach and just taking in all those beautiful bird sounds, and getting back to nature here this morning, but this home as I told you half an hour ago, could be yours for just $10. This property worth 1.3 million dollars on over an acre of land, it’s a beautiful home and it’s being auctioned off essentially to anyone who wants to buy a ticket for this competition to help a very, very worthy cause. We’re going to find out a little bit more about the Endeavour Foundation.

Tim: And tell me about the Endeavour Foundation for people that aren’t familiar with that as well.
Kirsty: Yeah Endeavour started back in 1951 with parents who were supporting children with a disability to be educated as they weren’t allowed to be educated in schools, and from there we now support thousands of people with a disability and through living, accommodation, supported employment, life skills and every ticket that we sell goes to supporting those people on those services.

Alex: It’s changed my life from the point of view of you know belonging to a team, obviously having a career for 10 years and that’s been really beneficial to me from the friends point of view, throughout my 10 year career I’ve also learnt a lot of new skills, I’ve had some really rich opportunities particularly in the videos and presentation department, and I’m now supporting myself living semi independently.

Kirsty: I am so I get the privilege of making someone’s life change in an instant, so very lucky.
Tim: Wow that must be pretty exciting people must completely be in disbelief.
Kirsty: Yeah they often don’t believe me and they often hang up and I have to ring back.
Tim: Alright, now what been saying this morning of course $10 is all it takes to get in the running to buy a ticket.
Tim: Just had a lovely breakfast in the kitchen of this brand new home in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland this morning sorry just, standing in front of the girls here as they watch the outdoor cinema here and one of the problems I suppose on the Sunshine Coast is it can be very sunny an absolutely beautiful day here up at Montville but, you see if you’re trying to watch your outdoor cinema and it’s too sunny, don’t worry this house has got everything come inside because there’s another cinema in here. Can take plenty of people and you can watch exactly the same movie so you know what, if you wanted to set the kids up outside for the night and then have a movie night inside your brand new home, well you could do that this could all be yours for just $10, it is of course part of the Endeavour Foundation Lotteries anniversary home giveaway and I’ll tell you more about how you can win it and show you that real people do actually win incredible prizes like this worth 1.3 million dollars.
Tim: Louise who’s sitting with me here in the movie room here at this beautiful home at Montville, was actually a winner of the Endeavour Foundation’s lottery prize around 3 years ago. Louise you were living in Hervey Bay and you entered the lottery you bought 4 tickets for $30 there you go and you won.
Louise: I sure did.
Tim: How did that change your life?
Louise: Well it meant that could finally move to Coolum beach where a number of my sisters already lived, and it also meant that Ken and myself could retire and move to Coolum and enjoy everything.
Tim: And you didn’t just win a house, you got a car as well a Range Rover no-less, and for $30.
Louise: Yeah so it’s $15 for the house and $15 for the car.
Tim: Not a bad investment yeah and look I mean Louise is just one of those success stories of someone that’s been very lucky of course to win in this lottery, for this particular home there is just one week left for ticket sales and I can tell you this morning ticket sales are going through the roof, so if you are trying to get in touch to buy a $10 ticket then please be patient but the number that you will need is 1800 63 40 40 or of course head to endeavourlotteries.com.au.
Tim: I am Tommy I reckon, I reckon this room’s got your name on it Tom I reckon, there’s 4 bedrooms in this beautiful home here and we’re at Montville of course on the Sunshine Coast in the Hinterland, another bedroom here yep that one’s ready to go basically there’s only a week left to buy a lottery ticket, just $10 is all it takes to get in the running to win this place have a look at this beautiful main bathroom here big double bathroom, this place is modelled on a Queenslander style home so it’s absolutely huge and room for the whole family, check out that laundry there plenty of room there if you’ve got lots of kids great big tub in there as well to do laundry if you’ve got your towels and all that sort of stuff if you want to head down to the beach it’s only half an hour away from there. Going to tell you more about how you can win this place.
Tim: Well Jess Ruskin is a local Property Agent here around the Hinterland of the Sunshine Coast region, and I wanted to ask a Property Agent from the perspective of if you get that phone call from Kirsty to tell you in 2 week’s time that you have won this place, a lot goes through people’s minds right, people would be thinking do I keep it? Do I sell it? What advice from a Property Agent perspective do you have for a potential winner?
Jess: I guess the exciting thing for a winner
Tim:, is that we can make it really easy for them so together with Endeavour Foundation and Amber Werchon property we do have contacts which will allow the lucky winner to either sell the property, which as we all know is in excess of 1.3 million dollars of value and that would allow them to fund their lifestyle or it is a very active market here and a popular choice for short term rentals, and the estimate for that is in excess of $62,000 a year so.
Tim: There’s a lot of wineries and things around this area as well so no doubt you would have lots of people coming and visiting for weddings and things like that so for short term rentals as well it could be really popular in that regard too.
Jess: It’s a great lifestyle here I mean why wouldn’t you want to either rent here or live here so, we can make it easy for you.
Tim: Exactly, so plenty of options available if you did happen to win this place, you don’t need to worry too much. I find it a little hard to think that someone might find it a burden to win a house that’s worth 1.3 million dollars. If you would like to be in the running to win this property all you need to do is head to endeavourlotteries.com.au or call 1800 63 40 40, $10 a ticket you’d be mad not to buy a few, and I can tell you there’s only around 100,000 tickets left, there is still a week to go for ticket sales, but given how many we have sold this morning since we have been here, I wouldn’t be surprised if by maybe the end of the day, there’s not going to be any tickets left, so make sure you jump online and have a look at the website or give them a call, and buy a ticket.
Tim: Tommy and team thank you very much we have had an amazing morning here at Montville in the Hinterland of the Sunshine Coast taking in, this spectacular prize the Endeavour Foundation of course, as part of their Lottery this entire home, 1.3 million dollars worth could be all yours for just $10 those tickets are available 1800 63 40 40 or head to endeavourlotteries.com.au if you would like to jump on and buy maybe 1, maybe 2, maybe 10 tickets up to you, but you’d be mad not to get in the running for something like this.
