RSL Art Union draw 358 valued at 2.4 Million


The latest draw from the RSL isn’t making it easy. As a first option, you could be living in Blues Point Tower, a famous Sydney landmark that’s become one of the city’s hottest properties. Your second option is a five-bedroom waterfront home in Broadbeach Waters, close to all the best beaches and attractions of the Gold Coast. This second option also includes a huge $555,000 in gold bullion, making the decision even more difficult. Which will you choose if you’ve got the lucky ticket?

This is the draw for anyone who’s ever dreamed big, whether you want a multi-million-dollar apartment in the clouds or a luxurious home on the water. Urban splendour or coastal tranquility – the choice is entirely yours.

Option 1: Blues Point Tower

If you’ve ever spent any time in Sydney, you’ve probably noticed the tall residential tower on McMahons Point. It’s been a city landmark since 1962 and at the time of its construction was the tallest residential building in the country. Other planned towers were never built due to public controversy over the development, so the lucky residents still enjoy unimpeded views of the harbour.

What was once dubbed an “eyesore” is now one of the most prestigious properties in Sydney. The prize apartment is located on the 24th floor with unbelievable views from every room. The compact floorplan still finds space for 3 bedrooms, two full baths and a fabulous galley kitchen. Two French balconies are accessed by floor-to-ceiling sliding doors, and you’ll get plenty of fresh air and natural light in your home above the harbour. The property value alone is over $2.2 million and selecting this option will change your life, whether you decide to move in, sell or invest.

Inside, you can invite your guests to stay over in one of five bedrooms, all of which have been tastefully furnished with interesting accent pieces and superior electronics.
