Imagine starting your weekend by inviting friends and family over for a poolside party at your house, and ending your weekend curled up with your favourite beverage in front of a stunning marble fireplace.
Welcome to 256 Edgemont Crescent in Edgemont Park Estates, the grand prize showhome in the latest edition of the Saskatoon Hospital Home Lottery, built by Decora Homes. At over 2,200 square feet of luxurious living space, this home provides vacation living without ever getting on a plane.
“Maybe due to the last couple of years and having not really travelled, there’s just the vacation feel to the home,” says RUH Foundation CEO and lottery chair Jennifer Malloy.
“You can go to work and have these busy lives and then have this retreat to escape to. The pool in the summer and the heated floors and fireplace in the winter, and the bathroom with the soaker tub, it just seems like you would be hard to feel stressed out in such a beautiful space.”
The walk-in closet in the principal bedroom would make a fashion Instagrammer jealous. And the massive tiled shower and soaker tub in the ensuite are the perfect place to pamper and rejuvenate.
The great room with its vaulted ceilings and marble fireplace offers a beautiful gathering point. While snuggled up near the fireplace with your favourite book, you can still enjoy the scenic views that acreage living affords.
If you’re an amateur chef and love to entertain, the kitchen will have you over the moon. From the wood accents to the quartz countertops and large island, the space is contemporary and opulent. The white walls and black pearl granite offer a contemporary contrast, while the two-toned pale oak and walnut cabinets add warmth and style.
This is the first Hospital Home Lottery to include an outdoor pool and the outdoor living space will understandably become the focal point of the home during Saskatchewan’s short but intense summers. There is 200 square feet of outdoor entertainment space, plus a 300-square-foot pool house with a den, pergola and storage space.
The home is awarded fully furnished, professional decorated and landscaped, with $50,000 cash.
Edgemont Park Estates is minutes from downtown Saskatoon, and offers walking and biking trails, a skating rink, basketball court, pickleball courts, picnic area and many more amenities.
“You escape to a small community and you feel like you’re in the country a little bit,” says Malloy. “That’s the idea with the home with these beautiful expansive views.”
The Hospital Home Lottery is the primary fundraiser for three hospital foundations in Saskatoon. Proceeds from this year’s lottery will help the Royal University Hospital Foundation continue their Mission Possible: Operation New O.R. campaign to build and equip state-of-the-art operating rooms.
St. Paul’s Hospital Foundation will use proceeds towards the purchase of an automated pharmaceutical dispensing system, which will ensure secure, consistent and timely medication.
Lottery proceeds will support the Saskatoon City Hospital Foundation’s Equip for Excellence campaign to provide the best equipment, resources and technology for the hospital, employees and patients.
Every person who buys a ticket not only has a chance to win great prizes but also continues to support outstanding medical care in their community.
In addition to the grand prize showhome, there is an early-bird prize package that includes a Candle Lake cottage build by Zak’s Homes and Cottages, a Jacuzzi, two memberships at Candle Lake Golf Resort, and $10,000 cash.
Tickets are $100 each, and there are add-ons ticket purchasers can choose. The 50/50 draw last year exceeded $1.3 million. (Winner takes half.) Visit hospitalhomelottery.org for maps, photo galleries and virtual tours. Tickets can also be ordered on the website or purchased in-person at the show homes.
The showhome by Decora is open for public viewing Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. To visit in person, drive south on Clarence Avenue just past the Saskatoon SPCA.
Whether it’s an outing with family or friends, or a scouting mission to spy the latest home trends Malloy says, “I think people are really enjoying visiting the showhome in person.”
