Perhaps the biggest piece of news at the moment is about the Ultra Lotto jackpot prize, which recently exceeded a whopping P1 billion. To date, no one has won the jackpot, which means that Filipinos all over the country are lining up at their nearest Lotto outlet, fantasizing about all the things they would do that such a huge amount.

In light of this news, we asked Real Living readers to tell us what kind of home you would buy or build if you are lucky enough to win that P1 billion.

We received many interesting responses via social media, and here, we give you a round-up of some of our readers’ dream homes. Surprisingly, not all were looking for mansions! Just simple, practical, and cozy homes for their families to live in. 


Many want to build houses with large gardens, or in farms.

“A tiny home on a hill with a vegetable garden.” —Ria

“A conducive and relaxing retirement house [in a] suburban area with a small greenhouse farm in my backyard, surrounded by fruit bearing trees.” —Christoff

“Sustainable house! Solar-powered! And a one-hectare farmland!” —Bochic

“A simple house with [a] big place to plant trees, flowers, vegetables, and for my dog and bird.” —Jovet

“Mansion [in] a ranch.” —Ian

Bahay kubo sa may kabukiran.” —Mitzi


Some have very specific ideas about the styles and types of homes they wanted—industrial warehouse or Balinese haven, anyone? 

“A house made of fab containers for the whole family… or a compound with semi-open layout, industrial interior design, in a huge warehouse.” —Cristina

“Contemporary five-bedroom home in QC with a pool and guesthouse.” —Ingrid

“A modern-style Spanish house.” —Roo

“A country-style home with Scandinavian interiors [and] lots of wood, light and glass.” —Timmy

“A wide one-story house with a big lawn for my five kids to run around on… Semi-American, open layout/high ceiling on select portions… but will still hopefully achieve a quaint/homey/cozy feel despite the size of the house.” —Julliene

“A three-storey modern townhouse in New Manila and a 2-bedroom condo in BGC.” —Diane

“A nice 2-bedroom condo with an amazing view of Manila Bay.” —Solomon

“I will surely build a spacious Balinese-inspired villa with contemporary touches somewhere along Hamilo Coast in Nasugbu, Batangas. I want the villa to be an architectural fusion of Philippine hardwood, stone, and glass. The furniture and home décor will be modern-style, but should be appropriate to tropical climate.” –Oscar

Bahay-na-bato-inspired house, with a spare bahay kubo.” –Susan


For others, winning the coveted prize wouldn’t just be an opportunity to make their dream houses come to life—it would also mean a chance to help the marginalized members of society. How wonderful!

“Build a house for the aged and make their precious few moments worthwhile.” —Hannah

“A big house where street children could live and start their new life.” —Doreen

“House for the aged and orphan children.” —Freda

“A dormitory plus [a] school. Para sa mga batang hindi nakakapagaral. Para mabigyan lang sila ng chance for a better life.” —Merry

We're wishing everyone good luck!
