HGTV Now Accepting Entries for 2019 Dream Home Contest
HGTV has begun accepting entries for its popular HGTV Dream Home Contest, in which the 2018 winner will receive a prize package valued at $2.3 million that includes a home in the Rocky Mountain resort town of Whitefish, Montana.
The network said viewers can enter twice per day at www.HGTV.com/HGTVDreamHome. The winner will receive the custom-built home and all its furnishings, plus the keys to the redesigned 2019 Honda Pilot Elite and $250,000 from Rocket Mortgage by Quicken Loans.
The approximately 3,650-square-foot house is situated on the edge of Glacier National Park with views of the Rocky Mountains and Whitefish Lake in Montana's renowned Flathead Valley.
"Imagine a place where the mountains meet the sky, where nature wild and untamed greets you at your doorstep, where every season brings a new adventure. That place is Montana, an amazing backdrop for HGTV Dream Home 2019," said Alison Victoria, host of the HGTV Dream Home 2019 Special, airing on New Year's Day. "We can't wait to show fans what this location and this home have to offer – an escape from the ordinary into a life worth dreaming about."
Constructed with the finest materials, reclaimed historical resources, and timber frame architecture characteristic to the area, the home was conceived by Timber Forge Design, built by Malmquist Construction, and designed by Brian Patrick Flynn.
Packed with custom touches and local craftsmanship, the three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath retreat boasts a great room with floor-to-ceiling accordion windows that open to an expansive outdoor living area. An upper deck and lower patio provide dining and lounging areas, grill, fireplace, and Scandinavian hot tub, all near a private entry to the Big Mountain ski slopes. Back inside, other notable features include a large mudroom essential for Montana living, a cozy pet nook, bunk room, and a "lodge" for hanging out with friends.
