For the first time in its 87-year history, the PNE prize home is being built in the Lower Mainland.

Tickets are now on sale for the 2021 Prize Home Lottery, an energy-efficient home just minutes from area beaches and dozens of amenities in South Surrey.

Built by Distrikt Homes of Langley, it features just over 3,600 square feet spanning three levels and offers four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. The main level features open concept living with walk-out access to a private backyard oasis. Upstairs you will find a large primary bedroom with ensuite and walk-in closet, two additional bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as laundry. Downstairs offers a spacious home gym, media room, and a guest bedroom and bathroom. The total value is $1.8 million.

When the Prize Home Lottery started in 1934, the prize home was built on site at Hastings Park, a key programming element of the annual PNE Fair. The iconic “Win A House, Win A Car” call by ticket sellers throughout the fairgrounds became one of the sing-song sounds of summer and the home a showcase of local builders and B.C. building products.

Consistently one of the most popular elements of the fair in the 87 years since, each PNE prize home has been built on site, toured throughout the fair, then relocated to its permanent home in the months following it being awarded to the lucky winner. 

In addition to the grand prize package, ticket purchasers have the chance to win 1-of-5 vehicles from Chevrolet, $100,000 in cash prizes, a Harley-Davidson motorcycle from Trev Deeley, and a $10,000 Yaletown Interiors gift certificate. Four bonus draws will take place before throughout the summer, with ticket purchasers eligible to win additional cash prizes and a Tofino vacation package. The online/phone ticket purchase deadline for the first early bird draw is June 7.

Ticket options are $30 for two, $60 for six and 15 tickets for $125 and are available online at pneprizehome.ca or via phone at 604-678-4663 or toll free at 1-877-946-4663. The call centre is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekends.
