KNOXVILLE, TN -- Over the summer, architects, contractors and designers have been busy with an incredible home transformation on the sunny coast of Florida to bring fans the first ever HGTV® Dream Home Giveaway renovation. The sneak peek at this beautiful, one-of-a-kind makeover is now available at hgtv.com/hgtvdreamhome.
The waterfront property is shaded by giant royal palm trees and situated on the Indian River Lagoon with Intracoastal Waterway access. The updated, transitional take on Floridian style offers casual elegance with a clever play on classic coastal. The light and bright paradise is built for entertaining and relaxing by the water, complete with a private pool and a three-car garage. With approximately 3,150 square feet of living space, including three bedrooms and five bathrooms, the home blends the sophistication of the Hamptons with punches of tropical vibrancy.
"Deciding to remodel an existing home for our 20th HGTV Dream Home Giveaway provided a challenge, knowing the expectations our viewers have for these homes," said Ron Feinbaum, General Manager and SVP, Home Promotions for Scripps Networks Interactive.
