Fans Get First Peek at HGTV Dream Home 2017 Located on St. Simons Island, Georgia

The HGTV® Dream Home will mark its 21st anniversary on St. Simons Island, Georgia, where the white sand, moss-draped oaks and laid-back island lifestyle, make it America’s favorite beach town. The grand prize winner of this spectacular giveaway will receive the completely remodeled and fully furnished home, a new Honda Pilot, plus $250,000 from national mortgage lender Quicken Loans®. The sneak peek at this beautiful, one-of-a-kind makeover is now available at HGTV.com/HGTVDreamHome.


Interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn has restored a hidden gem into a one-of-a-kind seaside getaway with a design aesthetic that can be described as Southern Transitional. With Sea Island as the backdrop, the 1980s-built home maintains a traditional look that embodies true Southern charm with an emphasis on architecture reflective of its coastal location.

“The charming seaside location of St. Simons fits the bill as a ‘dreamy’ location where our fans can see themselves relaxing by the backyard fire pit or hosting friends by the pool,” said Ron Feinbaum, general manager and senior vice president of Home Promotions for Scripps Networks Interactive. “Working with architect Michael Stauffer and builder Allen Construction, we were able to transform this home into a residence with design inspiration that our fans can use in their own homes.”

The main living spaces reflect an entertaining-savvy layout that features muted, muddy earth tones mixed with bright whites. Comfortable furniture and formal statement pieces are intertwined with casual textiles. A selection of modern art elevates the house to a game-changing showstopper. The three bedrooms and four bathrooms take their cue from the property’s mossy vegetation with shades of green, and the neutral browns are a nod to the nearby beaches. Complete with a private pool, this approximately 3,200-square-foot abode is a fresh new take on Southern style.

The official entry period for the HGTV Dream Home Giveaway 2017 will run from Wednesday, December 28, 2016 through Friday, February 17, 2017, on HGTV.com. Eligible U.S. residents can log on to HGTV.com for full details and the official rules.
