Created with the bold, innovative ideas that make each HGTV Dream Home so exciting and unique, it has three bedrooms, including a 'ski dorm' that sleeps eight, three and a half bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen and two family gathering spaces with lots of natural light.
"The 2011 HGTV Dream Home is our first in Vermont and allows us to showcase the features and attractions that make its location so desirable, including the area's breathtaking scenery and year-round outdoor activities," said Jim Samples, president, HGTV. "Stowe is a vacation wonderland and the perfect site for our 15th anniversary home."
During the January television special, host Monica Pedersen, HGTV Dream Home interior designer Linda Woodrum and House Planner Jack Thomasson will take viewers on a visual excursion that includes every room in the house. HGTV designer John Gidding from Curb Appeal: The Block will introduce viewers to the home's panoramic views, including a landscape designed with outdoor entertaining in mind.
