- Omaze launches latest house draw with £2.5m ‘Bond lair’ on the Kent coast
- Online fundraising platform’s latest campaign will raise crucial funds for Global’s Make Some Noise
- Partnership backed by broadcaster and Global’s Make Some Noise supporter Myleene Klass
One lucky person is guaranteed to win a stunning £2,500,000 beachfront house in Kent – as part of a new prize draw to raise vital funds for Global’s Make Some Noise.
The winner of the latest Omaze Million Pound House Draw will get the keys to the unique ‘Bond lair-esque’ four-bedroom house, built into the cliffs on the Kent coast, on the site of a former WWII gun emplacement.
Boasting some of the best views in Britain – the property has been transformed into a stylish and contemporary new home, designed with all the comforts to enjoy an easy living lifestyle.
The house comes fully furnished and mortgage free – with all stamp duty and legal fees covered. The winner is also given £50,000 cash to help them settle in – and is free to either live in the house, rent it out or sell it.
The showpiece of the house is a sea facing, rooftop terrace that offers unparalleled 180-degree views overlooking the beach below as well as the charming village of Kingsdown to the east, the iconic White Cliffs of Dover to the West and the vast expanse of the English Channel leading all the way to France straight ahead.
The first of two tranquil terraces has a spacious seating area for friends and family to relax and take in the stunning sea views.
On clear days, the winner will be able to see France while they make use of the top of the range BBQ and pizza oven provided in the outdoor kitchen and dining area on the second terrace.
Inside the luxurious 9,000 sq ft home, a central passageway leads into an extensive main living space framed with floor-to-ceiling windows that provide spectacular sea views – as well as a cool maritime breeze for hot summer nights.
The winner can prepare drinks when entertaining guests using the integrated – and fully stocked – bar with a purpose-made wine fridge to chill bottles from the cellar. #
The state-of-the-art kitchen comes complete with a large breakfast bar and adjoining dining area. The house comes fully equipped with the latest gadgets and smart technology throughout.
The king-sized main bedroom has a bed to match as well as a TV that drops from the ceiling, its own lounge area and automatic black out blinds.
The winner will wake up to unspoilt sea views every morning with floor-to-ceiling glass doors that lead directly onto their own terrace.
The main bedroom also has an ensuite bathroom that offers a spa like experience with a rainfall shower, heated floors, a double sink and separate dressing room.
Two of the guest bedrooms also offer king-size beds (one four poster), luxury ensuite bathrooms (one with a freestanding bath) and access to a separate side terrace. The fourth bedroom has a door that leads straight into a sunken courtyard.
The lucky winner will feel like ‘agent Bubble-0-7, licence to chill’ – whilst unwinding with a late-night dip in the stylish hot tub.
The house also comes with a double garage.
If the winner does decide to rent it out, local estate agents estimate that the beachfront property could achieve £5,000 a month from a long-term rental.
The house is just minutes away from many desirable coastal locations, and just above a sheltered beach set within the lee of the White Cliffs of Dover, a recognised Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
There are plenty of outdoor pursuits on offer with incredible coastal cliff walks, sailing, fishing, tennis and three highly rated golf courses.
Local amenities are just a seven-minute walk away at the seaside village of Kingsdown, which offers a village shop, renowned butcher, Post Office, three local pubs and a host of well-regarded schools.
Nearby Deal has a wide range of shopping, leisure and educational facilities, and the neighbouring towns of Sandwich, Dover and Canterbury are around half an hour away or less.
The area has fantastic railway links. The High-Speed line runs from Walmer to London St. Pancras in under an hour and a half. For those who want to nip across to Europe, access is excellent via the Port of Dover, the Channel Tunnel terminal at Folkestone and Eurostar services from Ashford International.
As well as making its grand prize winner a multi-millionaire – the draw will also support Global’s Make Some Noise, a charity dedicated to improving lives by supporting over 100 small charities across the UK such as Rising Sun Domestic Violence and Abuse Service (in Kent); Cerebral Palsy Scotland and Leeds Black Elders Association (LBEA).
The past few years have been incredibly hard for a lot of people. The pandemic coupled with the cost-of-living crisis means that many now rely on local charities for food, care, counselling, companionship, and survival.
The money raised through the Kent House Draw will help Global’s Make Some Noise to fund a service providing safety and shelter to some of Kent’s most disadvantaged young women at Rising Sun; specialist physio, speech and language and occupational therapy to 0-3 year olds with mobility impairments at Cerebral Palsy Scotland and a project building confidence for isolated elders leaving the house after 2 years of restrictions at LBEA, alongside many more vital projects helping thousands of people to feel well, feel safe, feel included and feel prepared.
This innovative fundraising campaign with Omaze will give the charity a minimum donation of £100,000 guaranteed and has a target raise of at least £500,000.
The draw is backed by musician, Smooth Radio & Classic FM presenter and Global’s Make Some Noise supporter Myleene Klass, who has been involved with the charity since 2016.
Myleene Klass said: “The partnership between Global’s Make Some Noise and Omaze is fantastic – it’s raising money and awareness for so many small, but still hugely important charities.
“Everyone who enters the draw is helping to support these incredibly worthwhile causes – and someone is also going to be in 00-Heaven when they win this stunning house that wouldn’t look out of place in a Bond film.”
Jo Kenrick, Chair of Trustees at Global’s Make Some Noise said: “We are so excited and proud to be partnering with Omaze on the Kent House Draw.
“Global’s Make Some Noise supports over 100 brilliant small charities. We give them a voice and fund their crucial services including homelessness projects, mental health and domestic abuse helplines, disability and carer support, and employment programmes.
“I see the important work these amazing charities do. They are often unsung heroes, making a real difference to the most vulnerable in communities across the UK.
“Right now, demands on their services are increasing and the need for support is growing. Make Some Noise is dedicated to improving lives by partnering with small charities.
“Money raised through the Kent House Draw will help continue this vital work, so thank you to everyone who chooses to take part.”
James Oakes at Omaze said: “We’re honoured to be partnering with Global’s Make Some Noise for this House Draw. By offering this dream beachfront property on the coast of Kent, we’re not only giving people the chance to win an amazing house, but also raising money and introducing charities to brand new audiences.
“We’re incredibly proud that the Omaze community has already raised £5,750,000 for UK charities since we launched in 2020.”
