Martha's Vineyard is Site of HGTV Dream Home 2015
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Are you the lucky winner who will be getting the keys to the HGTV® Dream Home 2015 in Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts? One of the most extraordinary locations in HGTV Dream Home history, this year’s custom-built, fully furnished home resides in the ultimate getaway – one mile from the beach on Martha’s Vineyard, an island just off the coast of Cape Cod that is highlighted by historic landmarks, lighthouses, charming neighborhoods and pristine beaches.
“We’ve worked with our partners on this home to recognize the architecture and history of Martha’s Vineyard, while building a spectacular HGTV Dream Home that is all about modern living.”
Accessible only by boat or plane, the 19th annual HGTV Dream Home is part of a grand prize package valued at over $2 million that will be awarded in May 2015. While you can ferry your auto across to the island, some residents choose to bike the trails that encircle Martha’s Vineyard. The official entry period for the HGTV Dream Home 2015 Giveaway runs from Monday, December 29, 2014 through Tuesday, February 17, 2015.
“This year’s HGTV Dream Home is located in one of the world’s most exclusive dream destinations,” said HGTV Professional Home Planner Jack Thomasson. “We’ve worked with our partners on this home to recognize the architecture and history of Martha’s Vineyard, while building a spectacular HGTV Dream Home that is all about modern living.”
The HGTV Dream Home 2015 is designed by architect Patrick Ahearn in original Cape house style with cottage vernacular, taking ideas from historic structures of the area such as its white clapboard front and dark green shutters. The home also features two stove chimneys that replicate the Katama Plains “shacks” of the area and has six dormers, creating natural light throughout. The approximately 3,200-square-foot, three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath home is intimate in scale, but open and airy.
The heart of the home is the central double-height great room and large gourmet kitchen with vintage solid beam trusses and large windows for generous views. In addition, three sets of French doors open to a blue stone terrace, with a spacious outdoor grilling area. A master suite is located at one end of the home, complete with a master closet, separate dressing room and two private patios. At the opposite end are two additional bedrooms, each with private outdoor courtyards, and two more baths.
The lucky homeowner also will enjoy a membership in the Field Club, featuring eight tennis courts, lawn game area, outdoor heated pools, deluxe spa, fitness center and a casual restaurant with patio dining.
Known as a vacation destination for Presidents and celebrities, Martha’s Vineyard is the same length as Manhattan Island and brimming with seaside activities. Enjoy some of the freshest seafood straight from the Atlantic. Spend time exploring on a bike path that completely encircles the island. Or, explore rustic lighthouses, cozy taverns, quaint shops and unspoiled beaches. All of this combines to make an amazing HGTV Dream Home 2015.
