Constructed by local builder The English Contractor and planned by local architecture firm Platte Architecture + Design, the colorfully classic home is situated near downtown Cincinnati in a lively and picturesque community. With a relaxing town square and scenic park close by and an incredible array of shops, restaurants and events to enjoy, the neighborhood fits the HGTV Urban Oasis mold perfectly. Spanning approximately 2,000 square feet with three bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths, the home is a model of understated elegance and has personality in spades – call it "traditional with a twist."
"Cincinnati is a diverse, happening place with lots of charm and a real sense of vitality," said Dan Faires, Project Manager for HGTV Urban Oasis 2018. "There's something to do everywhere you look, and we are beyond excited to bring HGTV Urban Oasis to a city that checks all of the boxes our fans love." Serving as project manager for the first time, Faires is an accomplished contractor and craftsman with rustic style and an easygoing personality. Fans will recognize him as the host of digital series DanMade on HGTV.com, and he was also a favorite from season five of HGTV Design Star.
With art direction and décor from Atlanta-based interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn, the home packs megawatt curb appeal and perfectly mixes modern design with classic Dutch Colonial cues. The exterior is painted a deep shade of charcoal, which contrasts sharply with the ultra-white trim and the fire engine red of the front door. These pops of color outside lay the groundwork for the flirty and playful design of the interior, where you'll find a sizable modern kitchen, three bedrooms—including a magnificent master suite—and an open floor plan enhanced with a new living room addition. HGTV Urban Oasis 2018 also features a stunning outdoor space with a covered pergola and a detached garage that has been transformed into a furnished lounge, complete with air conditioning.
Sponsors of HGTV Urban Oasis 2018 include Overstock.com; Quicken Loans®; Lumber Liquidators; Culligan Water; Kohler; Samsung; SimpliSafe Home Security; Clopay®; Duluth Trading Company; and Lennox Industries, Inc. Full details and official rules can be found at HGTV.com.
