HGTV Dream Home 2013: Renderings and Floor Plan
HGTV's 17th-annual Dream Home is being built on Kiawah Island, a lush barrier island located 21 miles south of historic Charleston, S.C.
HGTV Dream Home 2013 boasts a new low country Zen architectural style that combines traditional low country elements with contemporary flair. The design integrates harmoniously into the surrounding landscape.
The 3,000-square-foot home is located in Indigo Park, the first Kiawah Island neighborhood to pursue LEED Platinum certification. Standout features include carefully placed windows that offer generous views of tidal waterways and a spacious rear deck with a "plunge" pool.
This screened-in unconditioned area with cement-slab flooring provides under-home parking as well as space for storage, games and relaxation.
The main living area boasts a double-height (24 feet to peak of ceiling) great room with solid beam trussing, a large gourmet kitchen with adjacent pantry and laundry, a central dining area and a master bedroom suite.
The upper floor shares the main floor's vaulted ceiling. The living area, flanked by two bedrooms with private baths, can be used as a play room or library.
