Updated on October 19, 2014

2013 HGTV Dream Home


The first location clue for the next HGTV Dream Home was posted in their blog on April 12th, 2012. As with past dream homes, I kept you updated on the developments of the site, house, sweepstakes, and finally the winner.

The entry period for this sweepstakes ended on February 15, 2013.

The grand prize package is valued at over 2 million dollars. It includes the Dream Home, everything in it, $500,000 cash, and a GMC Acadia Denali. The winner was revealed on March 15, 2013 during the HGTV Dream Home Giveaway 2013 special.

The property has views of the tidal marshes and waterways that lead to the Atlantic Ocean.
