KAMLOOPS — Set in a quaint Westsyde neighbourhood, it's 3500 square feet of pure luxury.

Valued at over $636,000, this year's breathtaking Y dream home could be yours.

Spanning three floors and with four bedrooms, this open-concept home on Hayward Place reflects a combination of stucco and cedar panels, creating a rustic modern look.

"They've got these great sliding barn doors and when you go inside the ensuite, it's a double headed shower," said Spokesman Bryce Herman. "It looks like you're in a spa, so it's absolutely spectacular." 

A two-storey vaulted ceiling entryway leads into a design with big windows and enhanced natural light.

The main floor includes a two-piece bath and mudroom, but it's the master bedroom and ensuite that are the most striking, featuring a deluxe 'his and hers' walk-in closet.

"It's got a gorgeous walk in closet, as a lady you're really going to appreciate that, but there's something in there for the guys too. They've got a wet bar inside the walk-in closet, so when you go in there, there's a fridge a counter, cabinet and sink. It's absolutely great, you can have some of your favourite beverages in there," said Herman.

The attention to detail in the 2016 dream home is significant.

It's built to a platinum level eco-friendly standard, has additional insulation, and a xeriscape landscape to conserve water.

The space is perfect for a family and ideal for entertaining.
"A centre island, a full sized fridge and a full sized freezer. It isn't like you just have just a little freezer compartment, you actually have two full sized units as well, there's an amazing amount of features in this home," said Herman.

At $100 a piece, tickets for the Y dream home go directly to the YM-YWCA.

The lottery allows children that wouldn't otherwise have the opportunity to play and grow in a healthy environment.

Adding incentive to get out and buy a ticket, your odds are 1 in 34 of walking away with one of the 372 prizes offered.

"This year they're tracking even quicker than last year, and right now, we're sitting at 65 per cent of those already sold seven days into the lottery. Single tickets are also tracking ahead of schedule over previous years," said Herman.
