HGTV Dream Home 2011: Stowe, Vermont, Location
The 15th annual HGTV Dream Home will be located at Spruce Peak in Vermont's Stowe Mountain Resort, amid emerald-green rolling hills, winding roads and picturesque ski slopes.
The custom-designed home will blend rustic mountain appeal with modern architecture. Created with the bold, innovative ideas that make HGTV Dream Homes so exciting and unique, it includes three bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen and wonderfully creative living spaces. The home site is nestled in the gaze of the magnificent Mt. Mansfield, with its breathtaking scenery and invigorating outdoor activities.
