A 3,650-square-foot custom home in Whitefish will be the crown jewel of HGTV’s largest giveaway to date.
In addition to the 2019 Dream Home, the prize package valued at more than $2.3 million will also include a 2019 Honda Pilot Elite plus $250,000 from Rocket Mortgage by Quicken Loans.
The official entry period for the HGTV Dream Home Giveaway 2019 will run from Friday, Dec. 28 through Monday, Feb. 18, 2019. Eligible viewers can visit HGTV.com for full details and the official rules.
Last year’s winner was randomly drawn from more than 123 million entries.
The fully furnished Dream Home in Whitefish was constructed with reclaimed historical resources and timber frame architecture characteristic to the area, a press release from HGTV says. It was conceived by Timber Forge Design, built by Malmquist Construction, and designed by Brian Patrick Flynn.
“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.”
The 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. Designed to cater to both an active lifestyle and big doses of fireside relaxing and entertaining, HGTV Dream Home 2019 can best be described as “mountain modern.”
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.
Viewers can catch the “DIY Behind the Build: HGTV Dream Home 2019” special chronicling the home’s build process, which premieres 9 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 29, Montana time on DIY Network, as well as the "HGTV Dream Home 2019 Special," which airs 6 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 1, Montana time on HGTV.
