The winner of the HGTV Dream Home is announced this month

An HGTV Dream Home right here in the Lowcountry? You better believe we’re entering daily to win! The eco-friendly manse on Kiawah Island was designed by local architect Chris Rose in a style he dubbed “Lowcountry Zen.” Inspired by the Edmund Seabrook House on Seabrook Island, Rose combined elements of the traditional coastal South Carolina farmhouse with modern Asian motifs often seen in the Pacific Northwest.

The resulting residence looks right at home in its marshfront setting, with a welcoming front porch and a back deck featuring an infinity “plunge pool.” Inside, comfy-casual furnishings and a neutral color palette create a vacation vibe while allowing the outdoors to play a starring role through expansive windows.

Tour the Dream Home March 1-3 or 8-10 (proceeds go to Communities in Schools) before the winner is named on the 15th. Learn more at
