HGTV officially unveils 2021 Dream Home in Portsmouth
PORTSMOUTH — The 25th edition of the HGTV Dream Home officially was unveiled Thursday by the network.
One lucky contestant will win the 3,300-square-foot residence that comes fully furnished, along with $250,000 from Rocket Mortgage and a 2021 motorhome from Camping World. The grand-prize package is valued at more than $2.8 million.
Capturing the charm of coastal New England, the home — located off McCorrie Lane on the east side of town — was built and designed by Middletown-based JPS Construction & Design, while industry professional Brian Patrick Flynn was the interior designer.
“We knew we had to pick a location that would wow our viewers for the 25th anniversary, and Newport has every element a destination needs to provide that, including natural beauty, aspirational lifestyle and decadent architecture,” Flynn said in a prepared statement. “Every detail about the home, from the construction to the design elements, capture the spirit of Newport and the grandness of the HGTV Dream Home, making our 25th home the most impressive yet.”
The three-story, Cape Code-style home includes four bedrooms, three full bathrooms and two half bathrooms. Upon entering the home, visitors are welcomed by high ceilings that contribute to the greatness of the living room. The open floor plan allows for an easy flow between the living room and the dining room, which lives off of the chef’s kitchen that includes a large island, state of the art appliances and tons of storage.
The upstairs is home to four bedrooms, including the master, which includes a walk-in closet and bathroom en-suite. Up one more flight of stairs is the rooftop deck, with a wet bar and spectacular water views that cannot be rivaled.
The official entry period for HGTV Dream Home 2021 runs from Monday, Dec. 28 at 9 a.m. until Wednesday, Feb. 17, 2021, at 5 p.m. Eligible fans can enter for a chance to win twice per day at HGTV.com, where they will also find full details and the official rules.
On Jan. 1 at 8 p.m., there will be a one-hour HGTV Dream Home 2021 Special, with a special pre-premiere available on HGTV GO on Dec. 28. Viewers will have the opportunity to go behind the scenes with host Tiffany Brooks and Flynn as they give an inside look at the home’s build and design process.
The first HGTV Dream Home was built in 1997 in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Previous location videos and information can be found at hgtv.com/design/hgtv-dream-home/past-homes.
