“After we moved in, it turned into a huge project. I thought it would just need a lick of paint, but there was so much that needed doing.

“It had been a hotel at one point, so there were en suite bedrooms in every room, but no family bathroom. It was hard work but enjoyable.”

Dunstan snapped it up for £435,000 in 2011 but put it on the market three years later for £800,000.

After receiving no offers, the family put it up for sale again £845,000 in December but have only had one viewing since – despite dropping the asking price to half a million.

The dad, who lives with wife Natasha, 32, and their two children Ozzy, five, and Dylan, 15, then had the brainwave of making it a raffle prize.

Dunstan has already raised £1,500 and has even had interest from Australia, Italy and America.

He says most people are spending up to £20 on tickets, but has heard from one man who is planning to buy £1,000 worth.

Dunstan said: “After talking to many estate agents and quick buy companies, we believe it is in our best interest to take the sale of our property into our own hands, whilst offering someone else to the opportunity to own and enjoy the property as their own.

“I had been thinking about doing this on and off for a few years now but so far hadn’t acted.

“I knew that people had done this before but had problems, and I needed to make sure everything was above board and legal.”
