Nestled in the Dallas-Fort Worth suburb of Roanoke is HGTV’s 2019 Smart Home, a house that takes innovation to the next level in technology, energy efficiency, and design solutions. And, it will be given away later this year.
HGTV says the home has “an aesthetic best described as an Old-World retreat,” but it is also full of high-tech advancements. It’s been building these smart homes in various cities for more than a decade.
The home’s high-tech applications include a Logitech Harmony Hub to control all of the house’s lights and televisions, a SkyTrak golf simulator, and a Robomow robotic lawnmower, according to GuideLive. The house will also be outfitted with two Echo Dots, three Keurig machines, and Sleep Number mattresses in every bedroom—ensuring that technology will always be at the homeowner’s fingertips.
Not only does this house have three bedrooms and three-and-one-half bathrooms, it also has a media room with a 3D movie theater, a home office, a playroom, and an outdoor patio outfitted with a television.
Established in 1881, Roanoke is described by HGTV as having “a charming, small-town atmosphere with the best in amenities and opportunities” and as a “unique dining, shopping and entertainment destination,” according to a release.
State lawmakers proclaimed it the “Unique Dining Capital of Texas.”
Welcome to Fairway Ranch
Despite feeling like a small town, Roanoke—home of the original Babe’s Chicken Dinner House, and soon a luxury Peabody Hotel—is just a short drive to the west from Dallas and to the north of Fort Worth, making it a quiet place to live that’s not too far away from the bustle of city life.
The 3,400-square-foot house was built by Highland Homes in the Fairway Ranch development, near State Highway 114 and Interstate 35W.
Tiffany Brooks, designer of this year’s smart home, coins the style of this house as “Gothic modern” in a teaser video. The home is a mixture of contemporary style with Southern elements, and it’s full of unique design touches, such as the entire main room being painted black and the fireplace’s chimney being wrapped in chestnut leather.
The winner of the 2019 Smart Home will receive more than just the home and its furnishings—there is also a 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE and $100,000 up for grabs. If you’re interested in entering to win this year’s Smart Home sweepstakes, you can enter twice a day starting on April 24.
