“I’ve worked for the NHS for 40 years and even though winning this prize is so life changing, I love my job and will keep on working for the foreseeable future.”
Remember when you win an Omaze Million Pound House you can choose whether to move in, rent out or sell up. Catherine, from Telford, intends to rent out her six bed property overlooking Lake Windermere some of the time to pay off her mortgage and help out her children.
“We will rent it out to generate some extra income so we can help all our children and pay off our mortgage faster. We can even finish our current house, which has been a work in progress for years. We love this new house so much though we don’t want to rent it out too often!”
Estate agents estimate that the average rental income for holiday and long-term letting of the Lake District house is between £6,000 and £8,000 per week, rising to £12,000 during the high season. The fully-furnished house features cosy log fires, a cinema room, sauna, steam room, state-of-the-art gym, staggered gardens and a workshop.
Catherine, who worked as a nurse for years and is now in an NHS IT role, won the Lake District House Draw after entering to support Alziehmer’s Research UK.
