HGTV Dream Home Giveaway 2013 is located on Island in South Carolina
(Best Syndication News) - The house built for the 2013 HGTV Dream Home Giveaway is located on the East Coast in the vacation-getaway of Kiaway Island, South Carolina. The furnished new-construction home, a new GMC Acadia Denali, and $500,000 in cash are included in the 2013 grand prize sweepstakes.
The HGTV 2013 Dream Home is about color, texture, and patterns. The exterior of the home’s siding is a green shingle with dark wood doors. An elevated front porch offers a beautiful view of the sunset and a nice place to relax. Beautiful warm wood finishes are seen throughout the home.
The main entry hall has blue walls with a seating bench that has storage bins underneath. The wood floors and tan accents tie the home together.
From there, the dining area combined with the kitchen is straight ahead. The room is painted in a pale lime green color throughout with touches of baby blue. The kitchen cabinets are white and gray. There is a pantry that can be used for other purposes. Not far off is the laundry room. The feel of the room is more contemporary, especially with the dining table lights. The wood flooring gives the room warmth and the open floor plan ties it in with the great room.
The great room is a refreshing open and airy room. The white walls are made interesting by the large arrangement of windows. The interior does not detract from the view of the outdoors. The pale lime green continues in this room, but it is more of an accent color. The wood floors continue through this room. The upstairs loft looks down on the great room.
The interior master bedroom colors are off-white, beige, and gray, with highlight shades of turquoise blue. The brown neutral colors are brought to life with textures on the fabrics throughout. The master bedroom - which is on the first level - has a door directly to the outdoor deck. The master bathroom has luxurious tiles, which gives the room a spa feel.
The back deck is 600 square feet of space and wraps half of the house. The deck is 10 feet off the ground and has a plunge pool on the side. There are steps to go down to the ground level. The deck has a view of a grass marsh.
The Upstairs Level
The loft ventures into a more blue hue for the walls with sofas that continue the blue theme with a more modern pattern. There is a yellowish tan rug and two red tables to give you primary colors. The loft is fun and a more energetic place. The wood beams add interest to the high ceilings. A railing on one side of the loft allows a person to look down below a level.
Plenty of sleeping areas are available. Upstairs in the hallway are two bunkbeds that can have the curtains closed for some privacy. A bright lime green dresser is close by to hold clothes for the guests. Further down the hallway is a room that is a vivid turquoise color. In this room there are two twin beds awash in many shades of turquoise with hints of green to break the monotony. The color theme continues into the adjoining bathroom.
Another guest bedroom offers white and blue contrasts. To make the room feel relaxing, the walls are painted a grey-beige. The bed makes a grand statement with the ornately lathed posts standing tall. The adjoining bathroom is mostly white with dark wooden accents. The streamlined bathroom looks clean.
The home’s main level has been elevated 10 feet, which make way for a large two-car garage. There is plenty of storage space. The adjoining playroom features a ping pong table, seating, and a two hanging twin beds.
The sweepstakes have been going on since 1997 and each year HGTV picks a new location to build a dream home. They invite top designers to decorate the home, which includes major appliances, furniture, and electronics. The homes are ready to move into and enjoy. Last year, the HGTV Dream Home was in Park City, Utah.
