On New Year’s Day, the HGTV people revealed their 2016 Dream House.  This year they did a total rehab on a house in Florida on the Space Coast.  Merritt Island is the home for this year’s HGTV Dream Home.

I have missed out on winning the Dream Home for many years.  I thought long and hard about featuring it on this blog.  After all, the more people I tell, the more people who may enter and the worse my odds suddenly become.  I entertain myself with dreams of what I might do with the house, how I will entertain the family, when during the year we will go there to enjoy everything that it has to offer.  Matter of fact, it just occurred to me that “Dream Home” really means that all I do is dream about it.

Still, there is a chance.  Someone will win it.  Might as well be me!  Might as well be you!  I have decided to show it to you and encourage you to enter.

The home is located in this area:

Merritt Island is on the Atlantic near the Space Center.  There would be many things to do if you have guests or if you want to explore as a family.

Note the three car garage.  You win one car along with the house and $250,000.00 in cash.

The living room is very neutral because it is all about the view.

One wall is a wallpaper mural made from a photograph taken in the 50’s or 60’s.


Note the wall of three chests from Ethan Allen that give stylish extra storage.  All of the furniture is from Ethan Allen and it comes along with the house, of course.

The dining room is adjacent to the kitchen.

And sharing a wall with the kitchen is this media room.  It is not large, but with two sofas that face one another, you can seat many people for conversation or a movie.


The master bedroom upstairs has saturated color, but the white furniture make is restful and beautiful.

This picture is looking back into the master from the private balcony.

Start or end your day sitting just outside your master bedroom overlooking the Indian River.

The master bath is bright and has clean lines.  The free standing tub and the glass enclosed shower would be a great place to unwind after a day at the beach.


Below is the terrace bath downstairs.

Through the door is a guest bedroom.


Another bedroom is very warm with these orange walls.


But the main attraction is in the back yard.





Of course there is a pool bath.

…and your own dock…




…with your own boat!

Sunsets are free!

…and so is the doggie Dream House.

Now you can start dreaming, too.
