Man. lotto winners selling prize home
Sean Murphy and his mother were the co-winners of a 4,100 sq. foot home in the Waverley West neighbourhood. In June, the two won the home as the grand prize in the Health Sciences Centre Foundation's sweepstakes.
But Murphy said he and his family have decided to sell as the home is just too big. It's more than twice the size of the Island Lakes home he and his family already own.
"The boys picked out their rooms and they would have liked to stay, but it's just too much house for us," he said.
Fully furnished, the home is valued at $1.16 million but is listed at $974,900.
It's not uncommon for people who win lavish homes to sell them, realtor Glen MacAngus said.
"I think it's a lifestyle thing … 'Do you want the house, or do you want the cash?,'" he said.
"You can do a lot of things with the money if the house doesn't suit your lifestyle," MacAngus said.
He added he thinks he may have found a potential buyer.
