Sandra Gilson of Scotia, N.Y. has been announced as the lucky winner of HGTV’s Green Home Giveaway 2010. Sandra, a former New York State Tax Department employee, and her husband Kermit, a retired science and math teacher, will enjoy the grand prize package valued at roughly $800,000.

“I can’t believe this,” said Gilson, whose name was drawn from more than 17 million entries. “Oh, I just don’t believe it!”

The 2,100 sq. ft. single-family eco-friendly home located in Plymouth, Massachusetts was built with construction and design elements that promote energy-efficient living. Additionally the residence was awarded a GOLD Certification from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).

“The success of each of our three HGTV Green Home Giveaways shows us that many of our viewers are interested in knowing more about a green lifestyle,” said Jim Samples, president of HGTV. “This home, the first in a New England location, provided an excellent opportunity to showcase affordable, accessible and eco-friendly approaches to living.”

Along with the home, the Gilsons will receive a 2010 GMC Terrain and $100,000.
