  • Last month, Canadian resident Alla Wagner made headlines when she announced an essay contest with a grand prize of her $1.3 million home.
  • The 3-bedroom house is located in Millarville, Alberta on waterfront property.
  • Inside, the house features an expansive kitchen and wine cellar, along with a stunning master bedroom.

In January, Canadian homeowner Alla Wagner announced a contest after many unsuccessful months of listing her mansion on the market.

Inspired by past contests, Wagner designed her own "Write an Essay, Win a House" competition in which submissions cost $19 and the grand prize is her $1.3 million home. The competition is intended to be both a means of raising money to cover the listing price and of ensuring that the home goes to the right owner.

In order for someone to win the house, Wagner will first need to receive 60,000 entries. Submitted essays must answer the question, "Why would moving to this lakefront dream home change your life?"

This luxury home includes large downstairs living spaces and three upstairs bedrooms. The master suite features a walk-in closet, a seating area, and a private bathroom.

Keep reading for a complete tour of the mansion, beginning with the downstairs foyer.
