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.
