The famous Kent landmark Hadlow Tower is up for grabs in a raffle-style competition.
Banker Christian Tym snapped up the the 175ft Gothic folly for £425,000 in August last year after it underwent a £3 million renovation.
After having it on the market for several months, the 42-year-old has now decided to give it away to one lucky winner.
To win, the public are being asked to solve a puzzle with the cost of taking part starting at £4.50.
Along with the fully furnished fairytale tower, the new owner will receive £100,000, stamp duty covered, help in paying for solicitor's fees, and have a year's council tax paid for.
In weekly draws Mr Tym and his wife Becca are also giving away two-night stays in the Grade-I listed property, each worth £2,000.
The competition will run until June 3 2019 when, if they receive 800,000 entries, they will hold a grand draw to win the tower itself.
However, if that number isn't reached, entrants still stand a chance of scooping a Caribbean villa and £250,000 cash as well as several other prizes depending on the number of entries received.
Those wanting to take part will have to go online, answer the question, fill out their details, and pay.
They can also select a charity to help support as part of payment.
Explaining why the couple made the unusual decision to give away their home this way, Mr Tym said: "We have had many amazing and fun times at the Tower but are now looking to move on.
"We wanted to use the media attention we received selling the Tower to help promote the property and raise awareness of the public open days. Last year we had not managed to bring this to as many people’s attention as we had hoped, despite being on the front page of Google if you looked up open days at the Tower.
"We hope that by promoting the Tower in this way, many more people will book to see it.
"We also want to raise money for charity and, in particular, charities that have a special meaning for us. It was not easy choosing, so we let our four children decide and they chose charities that support deaf children, people suffering from mental health conditions, supporting ex-military personnel and terminally ill children.
