PNE Prize Home Lottery celebrates 80 years

The PNE Prize Home is an iconic part of the annual Fair, and this year’s home is truly spectacular.

The Prize Home has been designed by Canadian designer Jillian Harris for the third year. Harris, who has starred on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, hosted Canada’s Handyman Challenge and is the current co-host of Love It or List It Vancouver, drew inspiration from her passion for Kelowna, her current home.

Once the winner is announced, the home will be transported to an estate-sized lot on Kelowna’s Kirschner Mountain. The 3,000-square-foot home, built by Britco, is worth about $1.3 million, with three bedrooms and three bathrooms.

“Explore the 2014 PNE Prize Home, and you’ll find it open and bright with a fresh, neutral palette accented with rustic surprises,” says Harris. “Each room is designed with touches to soften the space and create a welcoming and cozy atmosphere that is ideal for casual living. I can’t wait to present the home to this year’s winner, and welcome them home to my favourite destination!”

One of the highlights of this year’s Prize Home is the dining and wine room, with tons of space for your favourite bottles and gathering around the table with friends and family. Casual living is the hallmark of the home, and there are plenty of places to relax. The master bedroom opens onto a huge patio that wraps around much of the upper floor, and the ensuite is spa-like, with a large soaker tub and separate shower.

Downstairs, the kitchen island doubles as a breakfast bar, and there is plenty of space to fulfill all of your gourmet dreams.

“This home is really about lifestyle,” says PNE spokesperson Laura Ballance. “It’s about engaging with family and friends, and reflecting why we as British Columbians love living in this province.”

This year marks the 80th anniversary of the home giveaway, and to celebrate the PNE Prize Home Lottery will give away a special edition Corvette, plus five luxury trips, 11 cars or cash draws, three early bird draws and the 50/50 draw.

“The PNE was the first to do a destination resort home prize,” says Ballance. “We always want to do something different.”

The furniture and accessories are also part of the home, from Lane Home Furnishings. The winner will also receive Jenn-Air and Maytag appliances from Coast Wholesale Appliances, an outdoor living package from Coast Spas Lifestyles and a $2,500 grocery package from IGA.

Tickets for the home can be purchased online, via phone at 604-252-3688 or toll-free at 1-877-946-4663, at the Fair at the PNE itself between Aug. 16 and Sept. 1, or in person at any IGA, Marketplace IGA, Save-On-Foods, Overwaitea Foods, PriceMart Foods, Cooper’s Foods or Urban Fare. The winner will be drawn on Sept. 4.

“This home will really resonate with fairgoers,” says Ballance.
