What Happens if You Win the Dorset House?

If you enter the Omaze Million Pound House Draw, Dorset, you could win the keys to this spectacular Forest House worth £2,500,000. And if you do, you’ll have the enviable decision of what to do next on your hands. 

Would you move in and wake up every day in the heart of nature, surrounded by trees, tropical plants and beautifully curated, luxury furnishings? Or would you sell this contemporary, five bedroom retreat to free up its price tag’s life-changing cash? Or maybe you’d opt for the third way; keep the house and rent it out to provide you with an income for life?

Remember, there’s no wrong choice here. Every option is there to help make your dreams come true; whether it’s a stunning, new home, a transformative lump sum or an income generating asset.  

So, let’s take a look at how each option works for this Forest House in Dorset.

Move In

Our Dorset House Draw Grand Prize Winner will love exploring the picturesque riverside paths nearby, touring some of the nation’s best-loved beaches around Bournemouth and relaxing among the wise old oaks of the New Forest. 

And here’s how we help take care of our winner so they can start living their best life: 

  • Forget stamp duty or mortgage repayments—we have all that covered.
  • The house is furnished with £160,000 of hand-chosen pieces, ready to move into.
  • We’ll even provide £100,000 in cash to help our winner settle in.

We’ve listed the estimated running costs for the Dorset House as accurately as possible below, with an estimated overall running cost of roughly £900 per month (as of April 2024) based on:

  • LPG: £333 per month.
  • Electric: £167 per month.
  • Water: £96 per month.
  • Council tax: £306 per month.
  • There are also some optional extras, such as a cleaner, window cleaner and gardener that may come to around £600 a month. 

    So, if you’re looking for a home where you can soak up the serenity of nature from the ample comfort of your bed, moving into this striking, rainforest-inspired hideaway is the ideal choice.  

    Rent Out

    However, perhaps you love your existing abode too much to move, or simply want to stay in the area you call home. If so, renting out the house, set in a picture-postcard residential area of Dorset, could be a great alternative. In fact, the estimated long-term rental income of this house is between £5,000 - £6,000 per month.

    Sell Up  

    If a foray into the rental market isn’t for you, selling the Dorset House and banking the cash is a great way to go. If a ‘sold’ sign affords you financial independence, a family nest-egg, or simply the opportunity to spend more time doing what you love, with those you love, then this option is the right one for you.  

    So…Move in. Rent out. Sell up. Whatever you decide, is the right choice!
