HGTV Dream Home 2010: Motor Court Pictures

The tongue-and-grove pine ceiling extends beyond home interiors to the motor court, which features a Belgard-paved driveway. \"The colors are very muted, so it blends in very well with the architecture and the landscaping,\" says home builder Mark Roccaforte.

The winner of HGTV Dream Home 2010 will receive the GMC Terrain, which features full-efficient performance, a rear vision camera, a programmable power rear liftgate, a standard USP port, available Bluetooth connectivity and GMC's 100,000 mile/5-year Powertrain Limited Warranty.

A paved driveway leads from the three-car garage to the front of HGTV Dream Home, where accent walls define the landscape. \"These yard walls define spaces,\" says Roccaforte. \"When you have such a vast space like this, you really need to define what is usable space and what is your outdoor space.\"

Interior details of the GMC Terrain include a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio and cruise controls and a two-way power driver's seat with power lumbar and height control.

With easy access to the kitchen, the motor court is the ideal spot to load and unload groceries and heavy cargo. The GMC Terrain's rear liftgate makes delivery effortless.

Custom-crafted metal mesh columns that flank the motor court are filled with rocks sourced at a local quarry. The golden hue complements the home's stucco exterior.

A three-car garage with full-view garage doors blends seamlessly into the Contemporary Southwest architecture of HGTV Dream Home.

In keeping with community covenants, exterior lighting that illuminates rock columns is cast downward to avoid unnecessary light pollution.

Landscaping blurs the line between desert and yard near the motor court. Indigenous pine and crushed gravel ground-cover make for a seamless transition.
