The owners wanted to give back, so they’re raffling their villa.
If you are anything like us, a Tuscan villa is probably a little bit out of your price range. Fortunately, you no longer have to comb those real estate listings in search of a deal. You can actually win one of these bad boys for free! Jon and Annmarie Nurse are the British couple that is unloading the home and they are taking a very unusual approach to the process.
Instead of selling the Tuscan villa to the highest bidder, the Garfagnana is going to be raffled off to one lucky winner. “There was a lot of news about people struggling and we just thought, ‘You know what, why don’t we do something where we can make a bit of a difference?’ and the one thing we had was property,” said Jon during a recent interview with Business Insider.
The winner does not have to pay any legal fees or transfer fees. And winners who live within a reasonable range will have their flights paid for, in addition to car rentals and hotel accommodations. The home comes with four bedrooms and three bathrooms. This couple’s kindness is definitely appreciated during these hard times and we can’t wait to see who wins the raffle.
“Live in it, keep as a holiday home, rent it out to holidaymakers or sell it. The choice is yours,” wrote the couple on their raffle website. “Northern Tuscany, [is] an unspoilt, rural, unique and non-touristy area north of Lucca which is ideal for those wishing to get away from it all.” The hardwood flooring and tiling make this home a true Italian treat and the kitchen is fully updated.
If you are having company for dinner, the dining space is large enough to seat eight. There are even two dining areas in the outdoor space, so all of your bases are covered. The yard is absolutely stunning. The beautiful pool is surrounded by all sorts of nature views and you’ll also get to check out the mountains as you swim.
The home is worth $517,000, and the raffle tickets can be purchased for $32 apiece. You have until January 29 of next year to get in on the raffle, so be sure to do so. $32 is a small price to pay for a once in a lifetime real estate acquisition opportunity. Head to the couple’s raffle website and grab your ticket as soon as possible. See you in Italy!SKM: below-content placeholder
