'Net Zero' home up for grabs in 28th annual CHEO Dream of a Lifetime Lottery

The Stittsville home includes four bedrooms, a home theatre and a kitchen that would make any professional chef blush.

One Stittsville neighbourhood is sure to be busy with people lining up to see this year's CHEO Dream of Lifetime Lottery home.

Located on Eaglehead Crescent, the $2-million Minto-built home is a Net Zero home, meaning no hydro bills as it produces as much energy as it consumes annually. 

The CHEO Dream Home is being described as classic, cozy and coastal, as the floor plan makes great use of space and the design includes plenty of light and neutral colours. 

The home includes four bedrooms with a bathroom for each room. In the basement there is a home theatre, a full gym and a wet bar for entertaining. 

There's a butler's pantry just off the large, open-concept kitchen that has a giant island, perfect for meal prepping. 

While the home is the big prize in the dream lottery and there will only be one big winner, CHEO Foundation President Kevin Keohane says anyone who buys a ticket is a winner. 

"We are a charity that raises its money at a dollar at a time, through check outs and things," Keohane said. "But, when you purchase a lottery ticket, you are really helping us to build toward a net profit last year of $4-million -- this year we could go even higher than that." 

In the nearly three decades since the start of the lottery fundraiser, $60-million has been raised for CHEO programs, services and new equipment. 

The CHEO Dream home is open to the public for visits on weekdays from 12 p.m. - 8 p.m., and on weekends and holidays from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.
