Can't afford B.C. real estate? Try winning this year's PNE prize home

If home ownership in Vancouver seems out of reach, you might have a better chance at winning this year’s PNE prize home.

The 2017 PNE Prize Home is a $1.6-million, 3100-square-foot, West Coast modern-style home that will be located in Naramata.

It’s a three-bedroom home with 2 1/2 bathrooms and “floor-to-ceiling living space.”

Don’t forget the “hotel-inspired” master bedroom with personal espresso machine, walk-in closet and ensuite.




This is the bedroom’s built-in espresso machine. No more walking to the kitchen for you.

But the kitchen is pretty awesome … if you do make it out of your bedroom.


A loft offers you a bird’s-eye view of your stylish living room.



There is plenty of living space outside, as well.



No dream house is complete without a wine cabinet.



The laundry room has a washer AND a dryer. It truly is a dream home.



You can’t see it in these photos, but the bathrooms do indeed come with toilets.


This year’s prize home was unveiled today and if it’s anything like years past, folks will be scrambling to buy raffle tickets, which start at two for $25.

Before we visit the new home, let’s take a trip down PNE prize-home memory lane, shall we?


Who could forget last year’s wine cabinet? Is this what they mean by floor-to-ceiling living space?

Or perhaps you’re hoping this year’s home will feature a bevy of technological additions and a full suite of entertainment options.

And of course, 2014’s prize home was designed by local design darling, host of Love It or List It, and former Bachelorette, Jillian Harris, so you just know that home was trendy as heck.

The 2013 home even had a billiards table, for those times when you want to not only impress your friends with your digs, but show them you’re a pool shark in addition to being a homeowner.
