Tricia Hamilton, hat maker and businesswoman, is selling £10 (about $14 USD) raffle tickets for her £1 million (about $1.3 million) cottage, named The Roselands, in Pill, North Somerset, in the U.K.

Hamilton, who has lived in the house for over 20 years and is looking for a change, plans to use the proceeds to reinvest in her business and give a portion to charity.

“Now it’s time for someone else to enjoy it,” Hamilton said. “It’s very unique, which works well for such an unconventional sale. I’d describe it as a Tardis as it’s much more spacious than it first appears.”

The four-bedroom home, built in 1829, sits on a half-acre of land and has 17 rooms across three floors, including three bathrooms, two living rooms and several outhouses.

In addition to being someone’s potential dream home, Hamilton says the home is fairly cheap to run, claiming she only needs to turn on the heating a few times a year. The house is also fitted with solar panels and has a vegetable garden.

“I rarely have to buy fruit or veg during the summer,” Hamilton said.

The home has been on the market for more than a year, but Hamilton has yet to get an offer. She says the house is worth more than £1 million due to the renovation work carried out, but she took more than £300,000 off the original asking price when it was on the market.
