Located eight miles north of Cape Cod in the Pinehills community of Plymouth, Massachusetts, an eco-friendly single-family home is this year’s grand prize in the HGTV Green Home Giveaway.
The 2,100 square foot cottage-style house, which recently received a GOLD Certification from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), features a spectacular covered wrap-around porch and third level tower. The home was built with construction and design elements that promote energy-efficient living.
“This is our first HGTV Green Home in a New England location, which gives us the chance to demonstrate the best building products and practices uniquely suited for the charm and challenges of a northeast climate,” said Jack Thomasson, HGTV House Planner. “As an added bonus, the fantastic amenities of The Pinehills community offer a lifestyle suited for the outdoor and eco-enthusiast. The house and community make this our best HGTV Green Home yet.”
The 2010 Green Home Giveaway commences on April 16 at 9 a.m. and runs through June 4 at 5 p.m. ET. Entries can be submitted once a day on HGTV.com or through postal mail with no limits. On April 18 Jamie Durie, of HGTV’s popular series The Outdoor Room with Jamie Durie,will host the HGTV Green Home 2010 special which takes viewers on a tour of the house and location.
“The success of the past two HGTV Green Home Giveaways showed us that many of our viewers are interested in knowing more about a green lifestyle,” said Jim Samples, president, HGTV. “This home provides an excellent opportunity to showcase affordable, accessible and eco-friendly approaches to living.”
