KNOXVILLE, Tenn., April 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Starting today and continuing through 5 p.m. ET Thursday, June 2, 2016, viewers can put technology to work for their chance to move into the HGTV® Smart Home 2016. Eligible viewers can enter twice per day -- once at HGTV.com and once at DIYNetwork.com -- for their chance to win the grand prize package valued at more than $1.2 million. HGTV Facebook and Twitter fans can check in for ongoing updates and new details (#HGTVSmart).
Awarded to one lucky winner later this summer, the grand prize includes the home, its furnishings, a 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC and $100,000 from national mortgage lender Quicken Loans®.
Fans can also visit HGTV.com/Smart to view the features of the home by local builder, Homes by Dickerson. Like its location, the home is a perfect blend of innovation and Carolina charm. A three-level traditional craftsman home with approximately 3,300-square-feet, four bedrooms and five bathrooms, it is cleverly constructed with tech gadgets and smart solutions to enhance entertaining and everyday living.
"When we look for locations for the HGTV Smart Home, we are challenged with finding a neighborhood and a city that has the combination of technology and culture that makes it a great place to live. Following the homes in Nashville and Austin, Raleigh was a perfect choice," said Ron Feinbaum, General Manager and SVP of Home Promotions for HGTV. "As a hub for technology and a vibrant destination for those seeking family fun, it was a 'smart' selection all around."
With room to spread out or gather for family fun, the main level features a master bedroom suite, open kitchen, dining room, living room and screened porch. Downstairs, the home includes an additional bedroom suite as well as a media room and exercise room. Completing the layout, the upper level houses a home office and two additional bedrooms.
HGTV Smart Home 2016 host and interior designer Tiffany Brooks brought touches of rustic oak, metals and stone to this year's home and combined them with a cool color palette that provides an unexpected contrast of traditional materials juxtaposed with modern and eclectic touches. In addition, she sourced art and sculpture from many of Raleigh's local talent to further extend the custom flair of this stunning home.
The fully furnished HGTV Smart Home 2016 is Energy Star 3 certified and Bronze-level Green certified and features products provided by national advertising partners including Bassett Furniture, Mercedes-Benz USA, Quicken Loans, Bush Brothers & Company, Daikin, LiftMaster, Farmers Insurance®, Gorilla Glue, HGTV HOME by Sherwin-Williams, SimpliSafe, Sleep Number, ICON Health & Fitness, VELUX, and Simonton Windows & Doors.
