Order yourtown draw 472 tickets right now

The massive once-a-year draw from yourtown is finally here, offering a spectacular home, special gifts, and a quarter-million in gold bullion to one very lucky winner on December 21.

The residence sits atop a cliff overlooking Sharpes Beach in Skennars Head, a community on the Ballina Coast just to the south of Byron’s Bay. The ultra-modern architecture is softened by landscaped gardens, a full-length lap pool, and a rooftop terrace that provides unimpeded views of the beach and coastal waters.

Every part of the home has been beautifully styled by iconic interior designer Darren Palmer. Inside, you’ll find four spacious bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and two versatile living areas. Equal attention has been paid to furnishing the multiple terraces, courtyard and delightful al fresco that borders the Italian mosaic tiled pool.

Skennars Head and the Ballina Coast

If your idea of the coast is filled with tourists, crowded beaches and urban sprawl, this prize home will have you thinking again. Although the glitz and glamour of the Gold Coast is only an hour to the north, you’ll find Ballina to be a world away from it all.

Set at the mouth of the mighty Richmond River, Ballina is a town that’s stayed close to its fishing roots. The fleet still heads out to sea at sunset, and their catch graces the menu of its many fine restaurants. The Big Prawn was rescued from demolition by residents who are proud of their small-town appeal, seasonal festivals, and connection to the sea. Visitors are drawn to the natural beauty of the region, and the simple pleasures of kayaking on the Richmond, whale watching, and swimming with the porpoises.

The tranquility of Skennars Head, combined with the unfettered appeal of the prize home’s pool and outdoor living spaces, will likely keep you in your own backyard for quite some time. When you do decide to venture further afield, however, Byron Bay is only half an hour up the road and you can be on the Gold Coast in under an hour.

This prime location gives you a magical combination that can be very hard to find. A peaceful home in a friendly community that’s still within easy reach of shopping, attractions, and the countless pleasures of one of Australia’s top tourist destinations.

A Stylish Home on the Beach

The first thing that will strike you about the prize home in yourtown draw #472 is its avant-garde architecture. The entire residence is a modern art piece, with sleek lines, contrasting facades, and an innovative approach to outdoor living. Built in 2016, the home is a glamorous showpiece, and exactly what you’d expect to find in a multi-million-dollar chunk of real estate.

Darren Palmer’s artistic talent is evident in the styled interior. The selection of furnishings and accent pieces keep the overall décor firmly within a contemporary mould, while paying tribute to the home’s beachfront location. The opulence is defined by the New York marble in the master ensuite, the black jaguar granite in the kitchen, and the pebble glass and Italian mosaic tile that line the pool. The beach lifestyle is maintained by the choice of comfortable seating, light colours, and textured floor coverings. It’s luxury that you can live in.
