The grand prize package is valued at over $1.6 million and includes the fully furnished home in Palmetto Bluff in South Carolina, plus a 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC 350e 4MATIC Plug-In Hybrid and $100,000 cash courtesy of national mortgage lender Quicken Loans.

Planned by local architecture firm Markalunas Architecture Group and constructed by local builder Shoreline Construction, the two-story coastal sanctuary is nestled in a private resort community on the banks of the May River developed by Palmetto Bluff Development, LLC. The home spans approximately 2,850 square feet and has three bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths. It features smart technology, clever design solutions and energy-efficient materials throughout that blend perfectly with Southern style.

“This is the fourth time we’ve selected South Carolina as the location for an HGTV home giveaway, so our love of this beautiful state is well documented,” said Ron Feinbaum, General Manager of HGTV Home Promotions. “Palmetto Bluff is a true Southern escape by the sea, and we know our fans will love the area’s antebellum charm, scenic views and vibrant culture.”

HGTV Smart Home 2018 host and interior designer Tiffany Brooks took cues from her surroundings to infuse the home with luxurious low country style. Light walls with playful textiles and patterns provide the perfect backdrop for the casual furnishings, creating a comfortable, calm and airy atmosphere. Industrial lighting and imaginative uses of wood paneling offer modern twists, while the porches and surrounding outdoor spaces, including a grilling area and a separate four-seat fire pit, bring sanctuary and relaxation to make this the perfect “smart” getaway.
