Omaze launches New Year house draw to raise crucial funds for BHF

One lucky person is guaranteed to win a stunning North London townhouse worth over £3,000,000 – along with £100,000 in cash – as part of a new prize draw raising vital funds for the British Heart Foundation (BHF). 

The winner of the latest Omaze Million Pound House Draw will get the keys to a four-bedroom, Victorian townhouse in the desirable London borough of Islington. 

The house comes mortgage free with all stamp duty and legal fees covered. The winner is also given £100,000 cash to help them settle in – and is free to either live in the house, rent it out or sell it. 

If the winner decides to rent it out, local estate agents estimate that the property could achieve a rental value of between £6,000 – £7,000 a month.  

Situated just a stone’s throw from central London, the three-storey, 3,400 sq ft, Victorian family home has been refurbished and extended to the most exacting standards. The beautiful property strikes the perfect balance between cutting-edge contemporary design, whilst retaining its traditional features. 

The heart of the home is the expansive, open living space arranged over the entire ground floor of the house including a reception room featuring oak flooring, a wealth of period features such as deep set ceiling cornices, cast iron radiators and an open fireplace with an ornate marble surround standing as a centrepiece to the room. 

The reception room leads directly into a beautifully bright and airy kitchen and dining space – with the bespoke kitchen featuring a marble centre island and marble-topped work surfaces – complete with top-of-the-range appliances. Full-height bi-folding glazed doors lead into the garden, which becomes a further extension of the living space in the summer months. 

The four bedrooms are arranged over two upper floors, with the main bedroom occupying much of the first floor. Filled with natural light by two large south-west facing sash windows and with ceilings of almost three metres, there is an open en-suite bathroom with a freestanding Corian bath, double basins and an oversized marble enclosed shower in one corner. A substantial walk-in wardrobe runs parallel. 

There is a further en-suite bedroom on this level with a mezzanine, together with two further double bedrooms on the top floor, both with ample built-in storage and sharing a luxury family bathroom. 

The landscaped, courtyard rear garden is incredibly low maintenance and its positioning means it captures the sun for much of the day. 

A purpose-built garden studio sits against the far wall and comes complete with a fully fitted kitchen and separate WC, providing a useful office space that could also be used as further guest accommodation if required. 

The house also offers superb views overlooking the neighbouring park and local cricket pitch – and comes with off-street parking for three cars. 

Just minutes from all the excitement that central London has to offer – the well-connected Finsbury Park train station is a short walk away, with the Victoria line taking just 10 minutes to reach Oxford Circus. 

The house is also near other North London property hotspots including Crouch End and the ever-popular Hampstead Heath. 

As well as making its grand prize winner a multi-millionaire – the London II House Draw will also support the British Heart Foundation (BHF). The money raised will help the BHF fund groundbreaking research on heart and circulatory diseases. With 7.6 million people living with these conditions in the UK, the BHF’s research aims to find new cures and treatments to help save and improve more lives. 

This is the second time BHF has partnered with Omaze. They were the fundraising platform’s second charity partner back in 2021, with that campaign raising one million pounds to fund urgent research into heart and circulatory diseases during the most uncertain of times.   

Omaze has guaranteed a minimum donation of £100,000 and has a target of at least £500,000. 

The draw is being backed by former French international footballer and Tottenham Hotspur star, David Ginola – who back in 2016 suffered a cardiac arrest on a football pitch and was given CPR for 9 minutes, he went on to have a successful quadruple heart bypass. 

David said:

“I’ve experienced the devastating consequences of heart disease first-hand, the money raised through Omaze’s innovative approach to fundraising will help the BHF continue its truly lifesaving research. 

“The partnership between BHF and Omaze is truly magnificent, it’s raising vital funds and awareness for a charity that’s incredibly important to me – and millions of others who are impacted by heart and circulatory diseases. 

“Everyone who enters the prize draw is contributing towards this crucial cause – and of course, someone is guaranteed to win the dream home in North London too – even if it’s a little too close to Arsenal for my liking!”  

Dr Charmaine Griffiths, Chief Executive at the BHF, said:

“We are absolutely delighted to join forces with Omaze once again. Despite phenomenal progress in research over the last 60 years, heart and circulatory diseases – including heart attack, and stroke – kill one in four people in the UK and are the world’s biggest killers. 

“The money raised will help British Heart Foundation to fund more research to save and improve the lives of all of those affected by heart and circulatory diseases in the UK.” 

James Oakes at Omaze said:

“We’re honoured to be partnering with the British Heart Foundation again for our London house draw. By offering this desirable townhouse, along with £100,000 in cash, we’re not only giving people the chance to live mortgage and rent-free for the rest of their life – but also raising money and introducing charities to brand new audiences. 

“We’re incredibly proud that the Omaze community has already raised £8,300,000 for UK charities since we launched in 2020.”
