The Hometown Heroes Lottery grand prize home in Morgan Creek is valued at more than $2.2 million.

A new lottery home has opened in Morgan Creek, valued at more than $2.2 million, making it the highest-valued home to date for the Hometown Heroes Lottery.

The 15936 39A Ave. home backs onto a large pond, and boasts three bedrooms upstairs, a great room on the main floor, a large covered deck and a lounge, theatre, games room and two additional bedrooms in the basement.

Designer Debbie Heal, of White Rock’s Sunrae Design, was tasked with providing furniture, window coverings, bedding and accessories throughout the home, and said the home’s overall ambience is one of peace and tranquility.

“When the door opened and I first saw the large windows that look out onto the water, I knew the house had to complement such a calming feature,” Heal said.

Heal was inspired by the calm hues found in the fireplace rock, and incorporated a monochromatic colour scheme throughout the main floor to help maintain the feeling of calm.

In the basement, she said she turned to some warmer colours – like burnt orange and darker wood tones – to add a little energy.

In addition to the dream home – which comes with $15,000 cash – the Hometown Heroes Lottery has more than 5,000 prizes to be won. These include a 2015 Sea Ray 410 Sundancer Yacht – which comes with $1 million cash – a vacation home in Osoyoos, a 2015 Dodge Ram 1500, vacations, spa getaways and more.

The Hometown Heroes Lottery supports the VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation and the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund.

The Morgan Creek lottery home is open daily for viewing from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased online at www.heroeslottery.com or by calling 604-648-4376.
