WHITEFISH – If the genuine cedar deck and sprawling deck with the “million dollar” view of Whitefish Lake doesn’t convince you, the luxurious living room complete with moose and massive fireplace probably will.
We’re talking about HGTV’s 2019 “Dream Home”, which is nestled on the slopes of Big Mountain and was revealed on Wednesday.
The home, valued at $2.3 million, is a stunning property, just a few miles from Whitefish Mountain Resort with a view that stretches for miles across the Northern Flathead Valley.
MTN News was given a first peek inside the home, which will be given away in the next few months.
The home features floor to ceiling glass for the living room, dining room and kitchen, which completely opens up to the expansive deck overlooking Whitefish Lake, thousands of feet below.
The home was designed by Timber Forge Design and constructed by Malmquist Construction, with interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn using a variety of styles, from “western” to “modern”, paying tribute to Montana and the Pacific Northwest.
“This is our 23rd year for Dream Home. And every year we just try to think of dreamy, dreamy locations. You know, a place that everybody kind of imagines themselves with year ’round living and real luxurious, vacation destination if you will. Breath-taking views like we have here on Big Mountain in Whitefish. That’s really the name of the game. So just the locale that you imagine in your wildest dreams,” said Discovery Corporate Communications Director Kriston Alm.
“You can go online at hgtv.com today and see every space in the home. It’s beautiful. And then on Dec. 28 we’ll open up our sweepstakes. You can visit hgtv.com twice a day to enter for a chance to win, twice a day every day until Feb. 18. And that’s when the sweepstakes will close and then we’ll select the winner after that in a random drawing of course,” Alm said.
And if the home isn’t enough for you, the winner will also receive a new Honda and a check for $250,000 in cash.
