Time to get those creative juices flowing. HGTV Dream Home 2012: Where do you think it will be? Or, better yet, where do you think it should be?
My dreamy pick? Imagine a Federal-style, two-story home, if you will. This home is built from solid limestone, mined from a quarry just a stone’s throw from the property. The site is slightly sloped in the back and the emerald-green lawn leads gracefully to a babbling trout stream (don’t deny me the pleasure of saying you might pass a small vineyard of Niagra grapes on your way there). The interior is light, bright and entirely eco-friendly. In fact, let’s make it net zero, save for one old-school, energy-wasting component: a very large, open hearth on the ground floor. It’s so large, in fact, that the fire warms the entire floor and makes a cozy sitting area with two club chairs nestled in its midst. This lovely home is situated in the heart of Bucks County, Pennsylvania, very near the Delaware River and tourist attractions, but with enough buffer to make it cozy, private … a true getaway.
Oh, I almost forgot – the home comes with its own pet goat.
