“This is one of the most incredible HGTV Dream Homes yet,” said Jack Thomasson, HGTV House Planner. “Located right in the middle of the Florida Keys, close to the hot beaches and cool scenes of Miami and to the eclectic mix of the southern-most town of Key West, the home will be filled with all of the tropical charm and features you would expect in an HGTV Dream Home.”
The Grand Prize winner will receive a prize package that includes a fully-furnished home with over 3,500 square feet of living area, a 2008 GMC Yukon Hybrid, a state of the art kitchen with high end appliances, and since Islamorada is the sport fishing capital of the world, there’s even a room dedicated to fishing! Located in the garage of the home—this room includes fishing equipment, maps, and everything an avid fisherman could want! The house will feature deep porches with beautiful views of the Florida Bay, and will evoke a casual elegance while providing the finest luxuries, comforts and conveniences in this tropical paradise.
Again this year, HGTV will televise the moment when one lucky viewer will discover that they are the winner of the 2008 HGTV Dream Home during a surprise visit from the HGTV Dream Home team on March 16, 2008 at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT.
