Blimey! $150 million British lottery winner buys $8 million Tudor home

I’ve been known to dabble in the lottery now and again. I even won $50 once, which was quickly spent on chocolate and wine (the essentials.) But over in the UK, the lottery amounts can be huge, especially when playing the EuroMillions weekly lottery. And get this: You pay NO tax on your winnings (obviously you will on the interest once in the bank!) – That’s right, win $150 million and it’s yours in total.

My lottery fantasy has always been an apartment in New York and one in York (the old one) in the UK – but this chap went one step further. For Neil Trotter spent a whopping $8 million on a tudor mansion with eight bedrooms, 400 acres of land and its own lake. Show off!

It’s certainly an upgrade from his old three-bedroom suburban semi-detached home!

The eight-bedroom Grade II-listed manor house in Kent has beautiful views across the gardens and to the woods and fields. Inside (I’m getting green just typing this) there are large wood-beamed rooms to really make everyone jealous and vast open fireplaces. Heaven.

Plus there is also a separate three bedroom “oast” house, so perfect for visitors. Such as myself. I’m sure that invite will be coming any day now.

But it isn’t just the main home or the Oast house – there is also this…

...plus a lovely big garage for some expensive sports cars!
