HGTV will celebrate 15 years of making dreams come true when it awards the 2011 HGTV Dream Home, a new, fully-furnished modern rustic mountain home in Stowe, Vermont, early next year. The 15th annual HGTV Dream Home will be located at Spruce Peak in Vermont’s Stowe Mountain Resort amid emerald-green rolling hills, winding roads, and exhilarating ski slopes. Information about the eagerly anticipated location of the home is available at Dream Home central on HGTV.com/dreamhome.

The custom-designed home will blend rustic mountain appeal with modern architecture. Created with the bold, innovative ideas that make HGTV Dream Homes so exciting and unique, it includes three bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen and wonderfully creative living spaces. The amazing home site is nestled in the gaze of the magnificent Mt. Mansfield with its breathtaking scenery and invigorating outdoor activities. During the winter, visitors and homeowners alike can snowshoe, snowmobile, ride horses, take sleigh rides, and of course, ski. During the rest of the year, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, hiking, viewing fall foliage and even soaring in airplane gliders are available. In addition, Stowe is a wonderfully eclectic village that is home to a thriving arts community and exciting cultural happenings more typical of large cities.

“This HGTV Dream Home is the first in Vermont, and we intend to show the features that make this location so amazing,” said HGTV Dream Home Planner Jack Thomasson. “It’s a spectacular place and the perfect location for our 15th anniversary home.”
