The Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) in Ottawa benefits the mental, social, and physical wellbeing of children in Eastern Ontario. The CHEO Foundation achieves this objective by raising, managing, and distributing funds collected throughout several fundraising initiatives during the year. The most popular of which is the annual Dream of a Lifetime Lottery which offers its winning participants more than $4.7 million in prizes including a CHEO Dream Home built by Minto Communities Ottawa alongside cars, cash, and leisure trips.
Doing Our Part
As part of our annual commitment to local charities and not-for-profit organizations, we donated a Matterport 3D Tour to support the local children’s hospital charity lottery. The 3D Virtual Tour captured 360-views of the home with all aspects of the main, upper, and lower levels in incredible detail. Our Leica BLK360 was also used to create the Matterport 3D Tour, capturing the exterior facade and yard of the property.
As in-person showings were not allowed during most of the event promotion, our 3D Virtual Tour of the CHEO Dream Home was used to show more than 100,000 ticket participants their potential prize safely online.
If you have always desired a dream home in Ottawa but are realizing home prices are pushing you further and further away from the city, the CHEO Lifetime Lottery could be the opportunity that you’re looking for. All you have to do is buy your lottery tickets and cross your fingers! The best part is even if you don’t win the lottery, all proceeds collected are used to fund the Children’s Hospital in Eastern Ontario. Your money goes to support the kids at CHEO!
The tickets for the lottery are $100 each. You can also buy a 3-pack for $250. The deadline for 2021’s ticket sales for the lottery is 17th December at Midnight and the draw date is January 5th, 2022. You can purchase your tickets here.
The 2021 CHEO Dream Home 3D Virtual Tour
As with every year, the CHEO Dream Home was built by Minto Communities Ottawa, this time in their Mahogany Community in Manotick. Situated on the corner of Skysail Place with a long pie-shaped lot, the home only has neighbours to the left and elegantly backs onto an East-facing park scape which allows a ton of light to flood in during the morning hours.
Serenely natural scenes surround the backyard with the house overlooking the Mahogany Pond. All of this is just around the corner from growing Manotick and a thirty-minute drive from downtown Ottawa, this truly great location for the 2021 CHEO Dream Home.
In addition to the 3D Virtual Tour of the CHEO Dream Home, we captured some photography from our favourite rooms to share.
The 2021 CHEO Dream Home was designed by Tanya Collins to promote the wellness of the body and mind. The front of the house features a wraparound porch that will provide comfort to enjoy the evening breeze or the early warmth of the sun. Built near pathways, you can go for strolls, hiking, or biking during the weekends helping you unwind and connect with nature.
The CHEO Dream Home Design
From the Matterport virtual tour, the CHEO Dream Home is about 4,600 square feet with a lot of beautifully-finished space.
The grand entrance has marble tile and large windows to let an enormous amount of evening light in. The dining room and an office are immediately right and left as you enter. Passing the stairway, the ceiling soars up nearly 24′ opening to a great room that views the large backyard and pond. A designer-inspired chef’s kitchen is complete with state-of-the-art appliances, all with clean white finishes. The principal bedroom is also located on the first floor of the house and features an ensuite bathroom with incredible tile and fixture details.
The second floor of the house has two extra bedrooms, making the bungalow perfect for family life.
The basement offers so much more than a traditional man-cave. It features an entertainment room, a glass-walled additional office, work-out studio, and workshop. It also provides additional access to the three-car garage.
By scanning the 3D Virtual Tour, we had the unique opportunity of seeing the home up-close and are happy to say it is spacious, well-lit, and comes fully furnished. It truly is a Dream Home in Ottawa.
Thanks To Our Partners
We would not have had the opportunity to perform this Random Scan Of Kindness if not for Minto Communities Ottawa trusting Point3D with the creation of the CHEO Dream Home Virtual Tour. While we didn’t work directly with the trades involved, the virtual tour would never have happened without the kindhearted work of the Minto Dream Home contributors.
