Posted: Wednesday, March 15th, 2023

A builder who has spent years on construction sites has won a stunning £3million townhouse in a raffle,Manchester Evening News has reported. Kevin Johnson, 34, has scooped the incredible home in London - just down the road from where he lives in a rented property. The London-based construction site manager of 10 years won the stunning four-bed Victorian-style town house in Islington after spending £50 on a ticket.

The dad says he was so shocked that his "knees almost gave way" after being told he had won the latest Omaze Million Pound House Draw. Alongside the mortgage free, stamp duty free property - he also won £100,000 in cash to help him move in with his wife of 12 years Dee, 44, and their four sons. Kevin, who has lived in a rented three-bed flat in east London since 2011 says it had long been the couple's dream to buy a home of their own.

He started out as a carpenter and his wife has worked in childcare and education for the past 24 years.

Kevin said: “We’re still pinching ourselves, whatever we decide to do long term, this is going to give us so much security as a family, it's truly life changing for all of us.

“We’ve always wanted to own our own house one day, so this really is a dream come true for us - we’ll be moving in as soon as we can. When Omaze first called me, I recognised the lady’s voice from the TV adverts, so thought it must be genuine – but I didn’t for one second think we’d won the actual house!

"When the team arrived at my doorstep to tell me the good news – I was so shocked my knees almost gave way! My wife was on her way home from work so I video called her straight away - she didn’t believe me at first, but when she saw the camera crew the penny finally dropped.

"She screamed and turned her phone around to tell the packed train that we’d just won the Omaze house – all the other commuters started clapping – it was crazy. I won’t need to use any of my carpentry skills on the house as it's absolutely perfect - the kids are going to love it."
