Discover the Floor Plan for HGTV Urban Oasis 2017

With approximately 1,850 square feet of space, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom Craftsman-style escape is centered around an open and airy living concept. Get acquainted with the floor plan in Knoxville, TN.

Located in the historic Fourth and Gill neighborhood close to vibrant downtown Knoxville and the University of Tennessee campus, HGTV Urban Oasis 2017 features an all-new interior and exterior with eye-catching design touches and aptly lends itself to sustainable urban living in one of Knoxville’s hottest neighborhoods. Fourth and Gill was chosen for the ultimate urban getaway due to its unique vibe and proximity to the heart of downtown, which features a plethora of restaurants, bars, outdoor concerts, shopping and other year-round activities.

“With our corporate headquarters right here in Knoxville, we know what an up-and-coming metropolis our city truly is – it has it all, including an urban feel infused with Southern hospitality,” said Ron Feinbaum, General Manager of HGTV Home Promotions. “Our team is accustomed to traveling the country to produce the top-notch homes we give away to our viewers each year. With this project, it’s particularly gratifying to be able to showcase all that our ‘Scruffy City’ has to offer – from an exploding culinary scene to endless outdoor adventure.”

With art direction and décor from Atlanta-based interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn, the approximately 1,850-square-foot Craftsman home features three bedrooms and two bathrooms centered around an open and airy living concept. HGTV Project Manager Scott Branscom oversaw the renovation process, which required turning a duplex with separate living spaces into a single-family home. Designed and renovated by local firms Open Door Architecture and Tillman Companies, the feel of the home is best described as casual modernist with artistic style, and the clever use of space makes it exceptionally practical for the modern-day family.

Natural materials in a muted color palette highlight the Smoky Mountain inspiration throughout, and details like a grand hallway complete with period-correct millwork paneling pay homage to the historical Craftsman style. The interior gives way to a spectacular outdoor space featuring a large screened-in porch, an asymmetrical freestanding garage and a fire pit that are designed to give the lucky winner ample opportunities for entertaining and enjoying the fresh air with friends and family. The home exudes an easy living vibe with a laid-back urban elegance.
