Essay contest offers $1.7 million mansion as the prize
Jan. 23 (UPI) — The owner of a $1.7 million mansion in Alberta is offering the home for a steeply discounted price — $25 and an essay.
Alla Wagner said her health problems are keeping her from properly maintaining the house in Millarville, Alberta, so she has decided on a creative way to choose the mansion’s next owner.
