Paradise Estates

Cal Nichols, owner of Gasland Properties Ltd., developer of Paradise Estates, stands in the open dining room and kitchen of a Paradise Estates home, one of eight grand prize options in the Millionaire Lottery.

The winning ticket in the Millionaire Lottery could win you a chance to live in paradise.

Paradise Estates in West Kelowna, that is.

Once again, the Millionaire Lottery, whose ticket sales support research and urgently needed medical equipment at Vancouver General Hospital, UBC Hospital, GF Strong Rehabilitation Centre, Vancouver Community Health Services and Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute, is offering a 3,811-square-foot home with three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a 197-square-foot rooftop deck in Paradise Estates as one of eight grand prize options.

Paradise Estates is a gated strata community of 21 houses located on more than 122 metres of sandy beach on Okanagan Lake.

Among its many awards, Paradise Estates was named the Canadian Homebuilders Association’s 2019 Development of the Year.

Cal Nichols, owner of Gasland Properties Ltd., the developer of Paradise Estates, said he came up with the concept for the community during the three years he rented a house in Palm Springs.

“I learned what works and what doesn’t,” he said.

Central amenities include a swimming pool, waterslide, waterfall features, putting area and a sunken firepit.

The home offers elegant living with a temperature-controlled wine room, private boat slip and a rooftop patio with a hot tub. Luxury finishing includes Venetian plaster wall treatments.

Two levels of 2.7-metre stacking doors allow the homeowner to bring the outdoors inside.

There are no windows on the side of the house, so light is added to the home with glass floor panels that run through the middle of the home.

The home is multi-generational and designed to be obstacle-free with a private elevator.

Along with Paradise Estates home, the prize package worth over $3.1 million includes more than $165,000 in furniture and accessories, a 2020 Tesla Model 3 RWD and $50,000 cash.

The grand prize winner of the Millionaire lottery can choose the luxury home in Paradise Estates or one of six other homes in Vancouver, North Vancouver, White Rock, Langley, Sidney and Sooke Point.

The winner also has the option of choosing $2.7 million in tax-free cash instead of one of the prize homes.

Ticket sales for the Millionaire Lottery run until midnight Friday.

Millionaire Lottery tickets cost two for $100, five for $175, 10 for $250 or 25 for $500.
