Longing for an escape from dreary weather? Dreaming of warmer days filled with outdoor gatherings and leisurely, long afternoons spent by the pool? You should enter for a chance to win HGTV Smart Home 2017, located in sunny Scottsdale, Ariz.
This year's home boasts a sleek, contemporary, Southwestern-inspired design with tons of hidden tech features that make everyday activities seem exciting. (Hello, laundry room steam closet!) Take a virtual tour with us right now, then sign up to receive an email reminder to enter when the giveaway begins on April 12.
Let's start in the entry where the front door opens automatically, like a friendly greeting.
Just inside the door, a bright and open great room beckons.
Floor-to-Ceiling Focal Point
The focal point of the great room is a natural gas fireplace with a safety screen, accent lights and a remote control for temperature adjustment. It’s framed in black satin tile with a tall white textured tile surround and features an inset high-definition TV hidden behind pocket doors that make it invisible when not in use.
Is it wine o'clock already? Lucky for us, the wet bar (with a wine dispenser!) is situated just off of the great room.
Next, let's mosey into the kitchen, which is ideal for entertaining.
This view of the kitchen from the sitting area in the great room shows the strong connection between spaces, which makes it easy for the host to interact with guests and move from space to space with entertaining essentials.
As is the dining room, with its open floor plan and serving station.
After a long day of exploring Arizona's great outdoors, this cozy master suite is the perfect place to unwind.
A Curated Look
In addition to the fully adjustable wood shelf inside, the oval nightstand also offers display space on top for favorite photos, a potted plant or flowers, and remotes.
Case in point: the master bathroom tub fills, heats and emits sound waves with the press of a button.
The inviting oval freestanding tub features hidden speakers that emit sounds waves, which envelop and gently resound within the body to calm and soothe, while a heated surface with three heat settings customize the surface temperature for spa-like relaxation.
Impress guests with this stylishly-outfitted bedroom that includes a projector.
The guest bedroom's handsome dresser with the short-throw projector and TV image above has drawers for storing clothes and accessories, with handcrafted hardware for a simple yet elegant look.
The smartly-designed office makes working from home easy and comfortable.
