What’s Your Favorite Space at HGTV Dream Home 2016?

We want to hear from you! We know you have lots of opinions about HGTV Dream Home 2016 and the thousand gorgeous design details that bring it to life—but we’re going to share our favorites with you first:

The media room gets big style points. We love that it sneaks in high-tech touches without screaming “home theater”—stylish Bose® speakers, a media console that’s an elegant piece of furniture, and a 50-inch flat-screen TV that blends in with all the curated artwork until the moment it’s needed.

HGTV Dream Home 2016 Media Room

We give interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn big props for making this space as multifunctional and modern as possible. No man-cave colors in here—he used a celery hue on the wall and accented the room with fuchsia fabrics, teal poufs, and bright, funky art. But to keep the space from overwhelming the eye, he counterbalanced all the color with a beautiful beachy linen fabric for the sofas, lamps made of driftwood and rattan, and an off-white shag rug that echoes the look of bleached coral. Perfection.

The terrace suite is a vacation for the eyes. The serene white walls, the seafoam tufted bed, the ocean blue fabrics and accents, and the stunning river view at ground level—what more could you possibly ask for in a bedroom retreat?

The white-on-white accents are clean and sophisticated, but the hammock chair makes you feel like a kid again.

All the artwork in this suite is quiet but compelling, reminding you at every turn of your coastal surroundings. And the wireless Bose speakers blend in seamlessly, adding function without clutter.

Finally, we love, love, love the lanai. The heart of outdoor entertaining for HGTV Dream Home 2016, the covered lanai connects the kitchen and pool areas and offers a gorgeous view from every seat.

The bleached-look sideboard makes serving guests super-convenient, and offers out-of-the-way storage for extra cushions underneath:

We love that the space is organized so that the chef never has to be separated from the party, thanks to the outdoor gas grill and refrigerator set in manufactured stone.

So now that we’ve revealed our favorite design moments to you, it’s time for you to weigh in! Which room speaks your language—and which design details send you over the moon? Don’t be shy!

  1. As for that truly romantic ambiance of the teal and soft summer whites in the master bedroom; well, sit me up in the comfy canopy bed to drink in the views or prop me up in one of the balcony's teak armchairs to soak up the sunshine and I'll never tire of waking in paradise every morning and counting my blessings every evening. on April 24, 2017 at 8:52 pm

Volviendo al manual básico del rescate, la teoría apunta que el fuerte saneamiento que ha realizado y sigue realizando el conjunto de la banca española (cifrado por la firma Merrill Lynch en 260.000 millones de euros, entre 2007 y 2013), junto con la creación de un banco malo que agrupará los activos tóxicos, deberían facilitar el camino para que los inversores internacionales recuperen su confianza en el sector y que las entidades puedan volver a realizar emisiones a precios razonables.

  24. Antes de comprar el C.6 pasé por varios concesionarios de otras marcas, sobre todo alemanas, y en algunos me sentí ninguneado, concretamente en Mercedes y eso que estaba interesado en un CLS. De todas formas, yo también sabía sobre la respuesta de la suspensión hidroneumática de citroen ante un pinchazo en una rueda (no en dos a la vez). Menciono al mercedes no porque este a sueldo de algun poder oculto sino porque segun este mismo portal, en la prueba del C6, escriben que solo este coche esta a la misma altura en confort de suspensión. Yo que soy usuario de C6 creo que en muchos de los comentarios se están haciendo brindis al sol.

  70. this is my soon to be home! I can already imagine myself there! I'm a real Floridian by the way and this house is total Florida style. It is gorgeous and I love the size, -because it's exactly what I need. I also love the fact that it's renovated. that is my favorite part because that is the dream right there. OH MY the boat, the river view and not a typical beach front. this is so much better and more fun! To take a diamond in the rough on a perfect setting and make a spectacular home out of that is why renovating a house is exactly what HGTV should do. All the shows on HGTV are exactly about doing just that. It's not some mcmansion with acereage of dry wall. Instead of new and more stuff and demolishing hours of work and memories it was reworked and is now fantastic!! Renovating a house is a true challenge and an excellent dream.. Mine personally I hate new construction. My favorite room is definitely the Media room. It's where I would sneak off to watch HGTV DUH!!! ! I LOVE MY HOUSE!!! SEE you soon baby I am coming HOME!

  71. The Whole house and property are amazing. A few of my favorite spots are as follows,
    The kitchen, colors backsplash, Master bedroom + bath and balcony with view are you kidding me, the dock out to the water & view, The grill area on patio and the dog house with a walkway!! As I said before the whole place is amazing but those would be my favorite spots!!

    HOPING on February 19, 2016 at 12:42 am
  73. I think I love the master bedroom and on-site suite bath the very most! A beautiful retreat right in your own home!! The media room second, the TV doesn't need to take over the gorgeous living room, I'm glad it has its own space. Fantastic job on this million dollar dream (plus)! I'd be FOREVER grateful to land this wonderful prize!!!!

    Katherine P. on February 18, 2016 at 4:52 pm
  74. I can't pick a favorite room or space. Everything, inside and out, is absolutely beautiful. The interior colors are so calming and flow so nicely from one room to the next. The outside space looks so relaxing and the views are amazing. I didn't see a single thing I didn't like. Just stunning. That's what I call a dream home.

    Regina on February 18, 2016 at 2:21 pm
  75. How can anyone chose a favorite space, with ALL the wonderful, dreamy spaces, if I was lucky enough to live in this most beautifully created-I am having a hard time saying home-because it is so much more than that-I highly doubt anyone could get my head out of the clouds and my feet back on the ground- if I won this oasis, I would ' t need to dream for anything else as long as I live–it is all dreamy, beautiful!!

    Laura N. on February 18, 2016 at 12:32 pm
  76. Winning this beautiful home would be winning a lifetime of vacation. The pictures and videos are awesome projectors that makes me feel like I'm already inside the home and having the upmost experience of a lifetime.

    Cathy Holliday on February 18, 2016 at 11:46 am
  77. I just love every single space in this house! It feels very homey; cozy and comfortable! I hope the lucky family who will win this home will be deserving for this blessings and knows how to give back to others even in their iwn little ways!May this home will be an instrument for a loving and harmonious relationships between each memebers who live in this house!!! God bless everyone and congratulations to the winner!!!

    Tawing on February 17, 2016 at 11:37 pm
  78. I love the outdoors. What's not to love :-) . But the terrace suite would be my favorite and my master bedroom. The blue and white is refreshing. The hammock chair makes me smile!

    vjdunham on February 17, 2016 at 4:32 pm
  79. Every nook and cranny!

    cvega on February 17, 2016 at 4:14 pm
  80. Absolutely lovely! Can't decide on one. The open outdoor space with pool and view of ocean is absolutely dreamy though. Kitchen is stunning, love different finishes of appliances. I love HGTV and the dream team is absolutely phenomenal. I have been submitting entries every day and hope more than anything to win this home. My husband just threatened to kill me and destroyed my home up to $35,000 worth of damage and because I added him to the deed and he is a homeowner and we're technically still married although I'm in the process of a divorce insurance won't cover anything. He even destroy the kids rooms. It is very disturbing. This would just change my life! Amazing bathroom.

    laura on February 17, 2016 at 10:51 am
  81. Every room in the Dream home is well design the colors so perfect true Florida .

    buddyandjanet on February 16, 2016 at 11:27 pm
  82. I don't know about any of you but I was upset when I logged on to this site at a library and had the chance to vote for a large number of my favorite shows as part of my dream home entry. On my home computer it showed only half of the shows and none was my favorite. If the HGTV bosses are listening, results of that question are very misleading as many have probably not had an option to vote for their actual favorites. My favorite is love it or list it and it was on my option list only in the first two days. I didn't like any of my choices after that.

    skahnb on February 16, 2016 at 6:48 pm
  83. Honestly I love all the rooms. This is the first dream home you've done that matches my style and it's hard to pick a favorite. My favorite room would definitely be the one I'm in at the moment.

    bsimms60 on February 16, 2016 at 5:33 pm
  84. The whole house is AMAZING!! If I had to pick, my favorites would be the entire outdoor area and the Master Bedroom. I can just see my husband on that dock, myself reading in the seating area and our daughters hanging by the pool:) My husband and I will be celebrating our twentieth wedding anniversary and he is retiring from the United States Coast Guard after 20 years of service. if we were to win this home, it would be an incredible start to a new chapter in our lives. Beautiful job!

    Jamie P. on February 16, 2016 at 8:55 am
  85. It has the right name Dream Home. That's all you can do is dream. I guess that's what keeps us going is our dreams. Will they ever become reality? We will keep dreaming. This is a great house in a great place.

    Dave on February 15, 2016 at 7:13 pm
  86. My fav of the Dream Home is everything!! My Dream house since I was laid off this would give me a home of my home with tranquility and less stress. Pls grant me as the WINNER! I PRAY EVERYDAY FOR THIS BLESSING! LOVE HGTV.

    Scott Hargrove on February 15, 2016 at 2:52 pm
  87. I am in love with the whole house so it is very hard to choose. I guess if pressed to pick the best, I'd say the master balcony. It highlights so many beautiful elements of the home in just one place. I hope I win!!!

    Leighanny on February 15, 2016 at 10:48 am
  88. I would just like to say this is my favorite of all the Dream homes you've done. This IS my Dream House! I love all the rooms and areas but we are an outside family so I would think our favorite area would be the outside entertaining area! Love the bright, light colors and beachy theme. Coming from Kansas, this would be a great place to "winter" if we were to win!

    Kansas Wildcat on February 15, 2016 at 10:38 am
  89. It's difficult to say,I love everything about this house,but if I have to choose,I would say the kitchen,I love to cook,and the kitchen has everything I dreamed. But everything's gorgeous inside and out of the house!❤️❤️❤️

    House Dreamer on February 15, 2016 at 3:03 am
  90. It's difficult to say, I love everything about this house, but if I have to choose, I would say the kitchen, I love to cook, and the kitchen has everything I dreamed. But everything's gorgeous inside and out of the the house! ❤️

    House dreamer on February 15, 2016 at 3:00 am
  91. I can't choose just one spot!! I love everything about it and dream home it is for sure. I enter every day and I have had dreams about it at night. I know the chances of me winning this are very, very slim but it sure is fun to dream about it. Whoever wins this is, in my opinion, one very lucky human being!!

    HeidiLeigh29 on February 14, 2016 at 11:57 pm
  92. I love each room! I love the color scheme in each room and the design of each room. I love cooking and the kitchen is a kitchen you can not only cook and enjoy cooking in, but it is a kitchen designed to entertain as well. I am retiring this year from the school system after 32 years this year and I can see myself and my husband at the pool relaxing and reading a good book!

    Regina McDowell on February 14, 2016 at 7:30 pm
  93. Outdoor shower?! AMAZING! Every inch of this home is stunning! From the colors,to the art, the deco….I'm in love with the wood flooring throughout the house as well. That view! Oh my! What a dream! A few other favorites? The garage with that gorgeous GMC Acadia…. and the patio set in the front of the house…what a great spot! I could only wish to be as talented and gifted to decorate my house like this….or to win it :) I think it's beyond impossible to choose just one favorite space in this Dream House!

    Julie on February 14, 2016 at 4:02 pm
  94. I'll have to go with the foyer, because standing there you can gain a great appreciation for the incredible effort that has gone into this home both inside and out. I would simply stand there for as long as I could to soak it all in until the temptation to explore the rest of this exquisite house overcomes me.

    Happy Valentine's Day everyone. My beautiful bride of mine (for the past 27 years) and I will have you over for a picnic next Valentine's Day at our beautiful new Space Coast home!

    LoCo Gary on February 14, 2016 at 3:06 pm
  95. I forgot to mention the fabulous dog house! I have a Pug and this would truly be his dream home! He's a really good boy and would love it!

    Lou Barron on February 14, 2016 at 2:18 pm
  96. I can't pick one favorite space, they all compliment each other and are fantastic! From the beautiful courtyard to the tip of the boat dock is so well put together. The location doesn't hurt either! I live in Maine and tired of freezing. I also have MS and this climate is really rough. This dream home is truly a Dream Home! Good job everyone!

    Lou Barron on February 14, 2016 at 1:52 pm
  97. My favorite space is the "outside-in". When you drive up to the home, it is so inviting on the outside that it pulls you in! And once inside, you can be in the blue bedroom or great room looking thru the beautiful doors, and it draws the outside-in– you have to open the doors and bring in all the outside beauty!! This is probably one of the most exciting homes ever–and as owners of a rescue pet, the precious dog house also considers the outside-in for our four- legged friends.

    Mary-Jo on February 14, 2016 at 12:35 pm
  98. I think this Merritt Island Floridia location is perfect! Having lived close to a lake for my whole life and owning boats forever, I must say this location hits the mark for my lifestyle. I love seeing the before and after pics of the property. Being aable to go in with great design and quality appliances and fixtures it is amazing to see what the HGTV team can do to a house! We are looking for our next adventure so before I pick my retirement location, I will wait for the annoucement to see if I am the lucky winner of this amazing property!

    Lakegirl on February 14, 2016 at 12:00 pm
  99. I have to disagree with raves for the media room. While it is a beautiful space, it misses the mark in functionality as a "media" room. Media in the sense of artwork – sure, but media in the sense of TV/theater room – no. From the pictures, it would appear that you would have to move the lamps to watch TV, and when not watching TV, the black screen looks out of place and ugly. I would suggest perhaps a mechanized lift/pop-up cabinet, so the TV could disappear when not in use and raise to unobstructed viewing when needed.

    Tim on February 13, 2016 at 10:30 am
  100. This is a beautiful home! My favorite room in the home would be the kitchen or the living room I love love this home it has my name all over it!!! This definitely would be my dream home

    Melissa on February 13, 2016 at 9:32 am
  101. This home is absolutely beautiful! My favorite room in the home would be the kitchen or the living room. This home definitely has my name all over it love love this home!!!!!

    Melissa Shirley on February 13, 2016 at 9:04 am
  102. It’s been said that presentation is everything – finished with thoughtful details seen in the color palette, window treatments and chandeliers, this home was rebirthed to reframe the perspective of passion and fun. From the entrance the home symbolizes hospitality and welcomes guest to an urban oasis. With streamlined curves and gleaming light, the home’s living and kitchen region are perfect for hours of pleasurable conversation. Designed to dazzle, the spacious media room proposes a coastal chic inviting atmosphere for additional hours of entertainment. Grounded by infusions of color, each bedroom suite is purposefully designed to offer relaxation and is an escape of your ordinary and tradition boudoir. Finally, the lanai brings a warm touch of the tropics, offering a never-ending journey of elegant and estate living.
    Keys please!

    TripleEffect on February 12, 2016 at 4:15 pm
  103. There are so many rooms I would enjoy and it would be a tremendous blessing to be able to do so. However, I find locations near the water to be soothing and I would spend a good amount of time outdoors or enjoying the view from the many windows. Kitchen is spacious with plenty of storage space and love the addition of the 3 small dressers under the window. Any of the bedrooms and baths would be great and the combination kitchen/great room and lanai are fabulous for entertaining. Again, it would be a blessing.

    And my husband would love to watch the launches up into space from the backyard as well as listen to his music all over the house and outdoors too. I'd put him to work at the grill since he thinks he is the only one who knows how to do that. I just let him believe it.

    Mimi956 on February 11, 2016 at 3:55 pm
  104. The house is beautiful and it will fullfill my dream to win it. But I have to say that other Dream Homes was nicer than this one.
    The kitchen is kind of plain and the bottom and top cabinets looks out of symetry with each other…

    Daisy on February 10, 2016 at 4:56 pm
  105. This house – MY house :-) – is absolutely wonderful, amazing and phenomenal! It is not surprising given the HGTV team assembled for the build and design. For me, home is the place that balances life. No matter what is happening in the "real world", my home is what centers me physically and spiritually. The spaces in this house that cater to this the most are hard to narrow down, so I could only make it to three spaces: 1) the outside space – the pool is beautiful and functional for exercise as well as the teak furniture for lounging and reading, 2) the media room as it provides a nice cozy, intimate space for a handful of friends and family and 3) the bedroom with the covered lanai! Most people live in a house – it takes a special place and design to be a home. This wonderful house feels like my respite, my calm, my happiness —– my home!

    Globetrotter on February 10, 2016 at 11:21 am
  106. I just want to say thank you to HGTV and DIY for decorating this beautiful home for me and my family to enjoy! You guys really nailed my style perfectly! There isn't one thing about the design that I would change! So as far as picking a favorite room is concerned well that is just impossible for me because get the same exact feeling when I look at each room! I can't wait to move in and start enjoying my wonderful new home!!!

    Dany Mae on February 10, 2016 at 4:44 am
  107. The living room design is awesome, simple, elegant, and clean but the master bedroom is decorated for an old floridian grandma, it doesn't seem stylish but dated. Also, since there are only 3 bedrooms, it would have been nice to designate one as a children's room. Would love to see another property like the lake Tahoe design, that was modern, cozy, and perfect! It would great to have a mother in law suite in future dream homes. Also please try to incorporate more storage type furniture, like an ottoman with storage built in for families in mind instead of bulky furniture without any storage.

    shy417 on February 10, 2016 at 3:35 am
  108. I'm ready for lots of sun, LOVE that house. May Home.

    Dulce Galvan on February 9, 2016 at 9:55 pm
  109. I have to say it's hard to choose just one area of this beautiful home and all tha's offered outside . I just love how it's decorated with all the colors Brain Flynn choose to blend through out the house .The outside is amazing, makes you want to hang ouside for all beauty that surrounds the house. The sunrise and sunsets would be the tops of it all ! I can't imagine all this beauty in all of this area and all that's offered here .I hope to get to see this in person !!!

    Brenda Hunnicutt on February 9, 2016 at 7:48 pm
  110. Hard to pick just one place to be my favorite, but the entry way is stunning! I love this space because I can see everything from that one spot! What a stunning sight to see when you come home! This grand entry makes you feel like you are still outside! Love you HGTV!

    Sharon on February 9, 2016 at 3:05 pm
  111. I like the outdoors so much but the media room is my husband's favorite ;) I think he especially likes the media room's proximity to the kitchen :)

    Evelyn on February 9, 2016 at 1:59 pm
  112. I love everything about this home especially the location is right by the water. My first room I would go to is the master bedroom patio to take in my new view") cheers prayers and hugs

    Renee on February 9, 2016 at 1:20 pm
  113. I've looked over and over at the rooms and can not decide on a favorite spot. I love them all. I dream about sleeping in one of the bedrooms and honestly can't decide between the terrace bedroom and the master bedroom. They both have gorgeous views. I do keep going back to the media room with all of its fun, bright colors – except that I'd probably be doing a lot of reading in there. Now I'd have to figure out where I'd do my painting, such tough choices, haha. I lived in Cocoa Beach for 5 years and absolutely loved it. I would be thrilled to be able to return to a beautiful home like this. The first thing my husband and I would do is take our kayaks out to the dock and set off to explore the neighborhood. (I'm typing this as I watch the snow outside – enough of that!)

    Julie B on February 9, 2016 at 10:26 am
  114. Love the terrace suite so much that I would probably use that as my master

    Chris Harrington on February 9, 2016 at 10:15 am
  115. If I had to choose from all those beautiful rooms, I would have to choose the kitchen. To me the kitchen is the center of a home. It's where everyone can come and enjoy their time together. Where family or friends can share their secret recipes to the ones they love. I love this kitchen because it's open and welcoming to anyone who visits. With the large windows to let Florida's sunlight in and enough space to have everyone joined in , no wonder this kitchen is the perfect place to start wonderful memories.
    The design detail that sent me over the moon was the flooring. I know it might sound weird but I love it. The floor is like the glue to a room, if it's not right it won't stick. The flooring the designers chose was perfect for every room design and color. I love the home in all and to all the designers and to all the workers, they did an amazing job.

    Elizabeth Arango on February 8, 2016 at 10:01 pm
  116. My favorite is the house for my Dodger!! And the bathroom,kitchen, outdoor area…..etc..

    Cheryl on February 8, 2016 at 9:46 pm
  117. I am SO surprised to see many negative comments about this gorgeous dream home. Don't know what people think when they criticize others work. But it is really difficult to pick favorite part from this stunning house. I would vote for gorgeous kitchen with tons of storage space and beautiful counters. LOVE they way cabinets colors are picked keeping kids in mind

    Sona on February 8, 2016 at 12:30 pm
    • Not at all surprised about the negative comments. The best part, if you win, you have the choice of the CASH option, the vehicle and never have to take over the title to the house. Needs too much work to get rid of the furniture and "ART" and a MAJOR interior paint job.

      Real Alaskan on February 8, 2016 at 2:17 pm
  118. The media room hands down is the best in dream house. It is understated as media, packed with everything media!! The subtlety of it all is amazing and the decoration is beautiful!

    Tamela on February 7, 2016 at 4:38 pm
  119. This house is truly a dream come true. Having been homeless due to a horrible domestic violence situation with three young children this would definitely be our dream come true and ofcourse the drastic location change would help us to start over away from any danger. This would be the best opportunity for us to finally enjoy life . We will continue to enter everyday in hopes that dreams come true . – a hopeful family

    hopeful family on February 6, 2016 at 1:21 pm
  120. I love the whole concept of this house, I love to cook so the kitchen is my favorite but would spend most of my time outside in the lanai listening to great music with my Bose.

    Debbie Butts on February 6, 2016 at 12:04 pm
  121. I couldn't choose a favorite except the whole house. This is my absolutely favorite home that HGTV has done. The colors throughout are peaceful and soothing. I just want to curl up somewhere and read a good book. If I could have my dream home, this would definitely be it. There is nothing I would want to change.

    Debrah Gosnell on February 5, 2016 at 2:15 pm
  122. What rooms am I swooning over? ALL OF THEM! I keep trying to get a look at the drive up to the house. When I watched the original show there were tall palms & they said some were diseased & they took them out. I was wondering & hoping some tall ones are left. I LOVE PALMS! Also I think they said something about no doors on the garage; but pictures show them the best I can tell.

    Bonnie on February 5, 2016 at 11:53 am
  123. Where do I begin?? This home is amazing and everything that I have wished for in a home. My favorite is the terrace suite. Th colors, brightness and view are exceptional. I love the location on the River. I liked the home in North Carolina, but this one is the best EVER!!!!

    Janet Karczewski on February 5, 2016 at 11:42 am
  124. What's not to like in the 2016 dream home giveaway. I like the master bedroom & the blue terrace bedroom for Moma (downstairs & I'd be right over her to hear if she needs me). I like the media room's splash of colors. It is all so wonderful. Everytime I watch it on TV it seems the colors are a little different. I was trying to figure out if the guest room is coral or orange. I love it that you fixed so everybody can see the view. I love it, love it, love it, Bonnie

    Bonnie Martin on February 5, 2016 at 11:41 am
  125. This point of view is mine and not reflective of anyone else, just saying before I follow up with my next statement. It is my understanding that HGTV is giving away this "Dream" home. Which in my view means it's a dream, not perfection suited for every single individual, per dreams are interpreted by the individual's desire. So, having said this, this dream is not suited for everyone, it is a dream suited for the entry winner that truly connects with the home exactly the way it is. I also realize, it is a possibility that the recipient of this wonderful prize will simply be the winner, nothing more or less. And that is fine. However, I assure you that if my family and I receive this dream, I will not change one thing about the design of this beauty. And I will be ever so happy to transfer my husband and I's name to the deed. Best to everyone who enters, and congratulations to the winner(s) especially if fate destines my family and I.

    rcvannatter on February 5, 2016 at 12:33 am
  126. Love this home! Trying to get my home ready to sell since my husband died and would feel so blessed to have anything like this home! Our family always loved boating so this home, amenities, location, would be a dream come true! I love the open kitchen area looking out to the beautiful scenery and outdoor comforts.

    Sandy on February 4, 2016 at 9:25 pm
  127. I love the living room it is like a great room for entertaining relaxing and enjoying the beautiful views love the lighting the mural and the fact that there's no there is conversation while entertaining with no distractions from the view.It truly is a dream home.

    melody on February 4, 2016 at 8:51 pm
  128. Can I say that if you crawled into my brain and my heart , you would have found the colors I like and the style I love !! This house is the perfect place to feel like home , it is exactly what I want in a home cook spaces and warm welcoming rooms, can't say enough LOVE it!

    Jolyn on February 4, 2016 at 6:03 pm
  129. I hate everything about the finishes of this house. It looks cartoonish; yet, has no personality. Everything is stereotypical Florida house. It would be nice if the colors blended and/or matched.


    Susan on February 4, 2016 at 1:32 pm
  130. The entire house is absolutely stunning! It is really hard to pick a favorite space, but if I had to, it would definitely be the GORGEOUS Lanai. I have dreamed for years of having an outdoor living space. A place where I could do everything: cook, dine, entertain, read, just everything! On nice days, I would be out there all day! I yearn and ache for it, especially since you can't do much "outdoor living" here in gray, wet Seattle. :-(
    It is a stunningly beautiful dream of a house that my whole family would love to call home. And so beautifully designed and decorated!
    I will say though too– I am thrilled that there are some bedroom options on the first level of the home. My disabled mom cannot climb stairs, and I love that I could present her with one of those gorgeous bedrooms, and she wouldn't need to climb a single step to get to it!! What a blessing that would be. Plus, being in Florida, she wouldn't have to complain about being cold all the time! LOL
    Awesome job on the house, guys!!

    SeattleRed on February 4, 2016 at 12:18 pm
  131. I say its a tough choice…I love the livingroom views and light…and the guest bedroom is beautiful too. the outdoor grill and pool will be so much fun. its really hard to decide! best of luck to all.

    silkenthreads on February 4, 2016 at 8:34 am
  132. We (my husband and I) LOVE it all. It's as though Brian Flynn (and the others involved) took a peek in our heads, and created our perfect home! It's kind of crazy. It has EVERYTHING from our "wish" list. We love Coastal decor, blues, grays. (That is the color scheme of our current home). We are not a fan of carpet and this home is carpet free – oh, and the floors are the EXACT ones we would have picked. Several years ago, my husband said that one day, he would love a palm tree lined circular driveway. I have always wanted high ceilings, my husband has always wanted a big garage… I won't bore you with the rest, but the list goes on and on…including the fact that 2 1/2 years ago my husband retired from the military (due to a TBI/PTSD while in Iraq). We planned to move from Louisiana and move to (yes, you guessed it) Merritt Island, FL. The water is very calming for my husband. We ended up NOT moving to Merritt Island, but Port Charlotte, FL instead because we were gifted a house by the Military Warrior Support Foundation. If we were to win the 2016 Dream Home, the beautiful thing is that we could re-gift our home to another veteran in need. (This is when "re-gifting" would be a GOOD thing). I have entered the HGTV dream home contest at least once every year for the past 20 years, but THIS home is different. I cried when I saw it, because it is so perfect. I know there will be "nay-sayers" who don't believe this post, but we know the truth and somehow in our hearts we feel that this home is meant to be ours. We have "DVR'ed" the 2016 HGTV Dream Home Special, which I didn't know I could do, but yay it worked! My husband and I have watched it over and over and over again. We can quote David Bromstad, Brian Patrick Flynn, Josh Temple and even Steve the builder and Rhonda the realtor! LOL So as Josh said, "this is not the in pretty good shape show, this is the HGTV Dream Home 2016". It is OUR DREAM for sure.

    dawnrossguillory on February 3, 2016 at 8:17 pm
    • Good luck, dawnrossguillory. I love knowing your dream home appeared in real life with your particular dream details. So cool. :)

      Lindingo on February 4, 2016 at 10:49 am
    • Only 1 more entry tomorrow for each of us. My husband and I have both entered the sweepstakes EVERY day on the HGTV site as well as the DIY site (plus the initial bonus entries on the site)…March will be a long month…

      dawnrossguillory on February 17, 2016 at 3:07 pm
  133. Love the idea of a Hot Tub…it does get cold there!!

    flygirl66 on February 3, 2016 at 2:44 pm
  134. I like the idea that this house was made for entertaining. Inside or out no mater what the weather.
    Just like they say "Dreams Happen".

    JayMichajluk on February 3, 2016 at 1:15 pm
  135. I think this home is beautiful and relaxing. Even if it upsets others for being a remodel of an existing home. Coming from someone whom has come from living in a fixer upper their whole life I can understand it's not always easy to rehab an existing property. As for the work done it's beautiful and I'd have to say that every room is nicely done. The flow of the home and the outdoor area is accommodating for any mood you might be in. All of the people whom helped contribute to this project should be proud of themselves.

    Wendy on February 3, 2016 at 12:22 pm
  136. I really love the front yard and back yard especially. My children and I love fishing, and are always doing outdoor activities. I like the fact that the Front Yard has an area to sit and share time together over a nice breakfast. On the other hand, I love the Media Room also. I really like that is cozy and has an intimate kind of setting. The Sofas are plump and large enough to fit more than two comfortably. The Television is not too large for the room and the Colors aren't depressing colors. Everyone who knows me knows that I love baking Pies, Cookies, and Cakes so the Kitchen respectfully has my vote. I could see myself cooking a nice Sunday meal while my children are helping me prep-cook. I know it sounds weird but I really do believe in an Energy efficient lifestyle so with respect to that, I also love the fact that the Natural Light that shines through the Home is bright enough to save on the Electricity Bill.

    Rakia on February 3, 2016 at 11:34 am
  137. This house is striking in so many ways, from the quaint entry to the gorgeous ocean views! I would probably be found in the kitchen area the most, both inside and out since cooking is one of my hobbies that I enjoy. Although, sitting quietly on the lanai reading a juicy mystery novel on a cool Florida day while listening to nothing but the natural sounds of Merritt Island would be heaven on earth! Perhaps a luxurious bath in the master.. I don't think I can pick a favorite room since I can see myself in every one of them enjoying the ambience of each!

    Jamie on February 3, 2016 at 10:47 am
  138. I like the whole house :-) but I really like the Wall Mural with the surfers since my husband surfs. Has anyone figured out how much all those taxes would be If you won this house and everything that goes with it? I pretty poor so not sure how that works :-( but I love this house it is perfect for us.

    elizabeth on February 3, 2016 at 10:04 am
    • Yes, somebody did figure out the taxes but it is way back on one of the other threads. Bottom line is you probably won't be able to keep it unless you do a reverse mortgage. Almost *everyone* takes the money option or takes the house and sells it, so don't feel like your finances hinder your options any more than the rest of us. :)

      Lindingo on February 3, 2016 at 11:35 am
  139. My favorite has to be the lanai area! With this beautiful setting I would spend my time outside as often as weather permitted. Is the house open at all for tours??

    Plunderroom on February 3, 2016 at 8:01 am
    • nope

      Lindingo on February 3, 2016 at 11:33 am
  140. We love the heart of the home, and where we spend 75% of our family time – the kitchen ofcourse!

    Joan on February 3, 2016 at 2:19 am
  141. Are you ready for a thoughtfully arranged, romantic dinner at the beach on Valentine's Day? Well then, it's time to start planning! Along with winning the Merritt Island Dream Home, here's an idea that's bound to tide you over until the next very special occasion:

    DBCoop on February 2, 2016 at 11:47 pm
    • That is so romantic–and practical. Love it.

      Lindingo on February 3, 2016 at 11:32 am
      • Romantic for sure… and practical — as long as you can get someone else to have it all set up for you!

        DBCoop on February 3, 2016 at 12:04 pm
    • Coop,
      You know my mind says what a wonderful idea. Would just love it. Being almost 70 the getting up and down would just kill my legs. I would be afraid that if I climbed down in that hole that the next step would be to cover me up, HA HA

      JayMichajluk on February 3, 2016 at 1:18 pm
    • Well now, that is just too fantastic of an idea not to use….except I need the sand and sea!!!!!

      Marilyn Johnson on February 3, 2016 at 2:05 pm
  142. Very difficult to choose what would be my favorite space. There are so many excellent places in that big dream house. Weather cooperating, I would have to give my vote for the Lanai. But during tropical rainstorms, I would like to be just indoors gazing out those lovely glass doors, almost on the lanai, but safe from wind and rain. Of course, if it is not too windy, even in the rain you could enjoy the covered lanai.

    Danial Tijuana on February 2, 2016 at 11:46 pm
  143. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this house! Not only is the house its self fantastic but the outdoor spaces are mind blowing. Someone is going to be very happy to win this!

    Jan on February 2, 2016 at 9:49 pm
  144. What a task! Out of the rooms in this blog, my favorite is the Terrace suite,. Who wouldn't want to vacation in style in that room!

    bythebaydreamer on February 2, 2016 at 9:26 pm
  145. I love the media room. It's like a secret garden you can close off from every thing and just get lost in those saturated colors!

    yecart on February 2, 2016 at 5:18 pm
  146. Just like LynnCoggin, it's been years since I've blogged, and I'm super excited to be back…how could I resist, the only show I watch is HGTV (much to my husbands dismay!). This year's house is truly dreamy. I had the chance to drive by it last week and instantly feel in love with the setting. It's tucked away from the main road, behind beautiful palm trees, so you instantly feel secluded and calmed. The front entry is so welcoming…I wouldn't change a thing!!!! Hope to be seeing allot of familiar names in this blog…y'all are the reason I wanted to come back!!!!

    flygirl66 on February 2, 2016 at 4:56 pm
    • Nice…. welcome back to the blog:):)

      gbfla on February 2, 2016 at 6:20 pm
  147. Lovin' that Lovely Lanai! It's just made for my sweetie and me! :)

    MamaSue2 on February 2, 2016 at 4:51 pm
  148. DBCoop! I haven't been on this blog for many, many years…I think since about 2009 or so! I very vividly remember your comments and your wonderful assessments of all of the beautiful Dream Homes of years past. I was watching HGTV this morning and thinking to myself, "I wonder what ever happened to all of my old Dream Home blogging friends." So, I thought I would just stop by to say hello and voila…here you are! I hope you have had many great years since we last blogged together! Not sure if you remember me but I went through a period of Dream Home blogging and I certainly look back on this community as a wonderful time in my life. Well, years have passed by us so quickly, but I want to shout out to all of you and, of course, wish everyone all the best in the Dream Home Sweepstakes! I had sent in a tape to HGTV back in 2009, or maybe it was 2008, to try out to be the next "Super Fan" when they were looking to replace Gail Fenton. It was fun and silly! My family and friends sure did love seeing it and got a real kick out of it. I still have friends of friends of friends ask me about it! {giggle} Although I haven't been following this blog, I am most certainly still a Super Fan of HGTV…watch it all of the time! Oh, and, yes, Fixer Upper is my favorite! I've been a Realtor in Pennsylvania for almost twenty years and I guess life moved along and business picked up since the crash of the economy when I had a bit more time to blog away. Anyway, I am so, so happy to see you on here as well as some of the other original familiar names on this blog! My best to you DBCoop and to all of the HGTV Dreamers, both old and new! <3

    LynnCoggin on February 2, 2016 at 1:59 pm
    • Welcome back:):) nice you are here again:):)

      gbfla on February 2, 2016 at 6:22 pm
    • What a wonderful surprise to see you drop by the blog after all these years away, Lynn. Of course I remember you well from "the good old days" as they say!

      Pleased to hear that life is treating you well as it has for me in my retirement years. Though I stay busy between my travels, I still make sure I set aside some blogging time most days along with my writing elsewhere.

      It would have been great fun if HGTV had continued with the Super Fan idea and picked you! On that note, I had the opportunity to write some blog posts as a contributor for HGTV's Dream Home 20th Anniversary blogs later last year and that was a fun endeavor.

      Again, so happy to hear from you. Don't stay away so long. Until your next visit, wishing you happy days.

      DBCoop on February 2, 2016 at 11:45 pm
  149. The best room is the master bedroom the view is breath taking i like you have your own spot of Florida you can have guest and quilt time t at the same time how good is this the colors are so comfy and restful .

    janet on February 2, 2016 at 12:39 pm
  150. My favorite room in the home is the master bedroom and balcony. So nice and comforting to see the lake. I'm sure the sunsets are absolutely beautiful.

    veronicacoats on February 2, 2016 at 12:08 pm
  151. Yipeeee!!! The blog is back. Thanks!

    Ashtabulannie on February 2, 2016 at 11:56 am
    • Yes I'm glad the blog is back!!;):) I started to worry.

      gbfla on February 2, 2016 at 1:21 pm
      • ^ Me too! I was concerned!

        Checotah on February 2, 2016 at 1:54 pm
    • I couldn't find the blog for a couple days!! I thought maybe I was having a senior moment and couldn't find it.
      So here everyone is again. I'd love to be the winner but most likely would have to escape to Canada to avoid the IRS.

      LighthouseKid on February 2, 2016 at 9:38 pm
      • Nope not a senior moment!  You are just fine!  Guessing the IRS does not have sufficient manpower or time track you down.  No need to go to Canada.  Although I adore Vancouver.

        Ashtabulannie on February 3, 2016 at 12:25 am
  152. It has great bones and the construction/reconstruction is top notch. The kitchen area is a favorite. The tiles are very funky and the mix with dark and white cabinets is great. The ash floors throughout are my all-time favorite. I could not believe it when I saw them. The outdoor space is beyond gorgeous. So relaxed and what I picture life in Florida to be. I do agree with a lot of the comments about there needing to be enclosed patio protection. I already am envisioning my items there. Freezer in the garage, basketball hoop outside, new shed for the outdoor sports equipment. Just perfect.

    Lauren on February 1, 2016 at 1:30 pm
  153. I love all the spaces in the house, but the only that I always come back to take a look at the pictures and details is the terrace room. It's so beautiful!!! Is a vacation suite, with a great view!!
    My husband's favorite space has to be the patio with the hangout space with the grill!!! Great space to hang out with the family and friends. Hopefully we get to be there soon!!! ;)

    IrianaC on February 1, 2016 at 9:55 am
  154. i love it ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Maria Blalock on February 1, 2016 at 1:24 am
  155. I love the outside spaces which showcase the beautiful view.

    nursejudyfromCA on January 31, 2016 at 11:59 pm
  156. The design details of the lanai sends Soney and I over the moon. Love everything about it. And those Bush's Baked Beans are really really good! Perfect for watching the Super Bowl! Thanks HGTV!

    alicesoneysmom on January 31, 2016 at 11:33 pm
  157. The living room is amazing! I swear I have dreamt of a living room with a view like this many times.

    Khadijah Gordy on January 31, 2016 at 11:30 pm
  158. The lanai. I spend time in Florida a couple of times a year and from morning to evening I am outside. The outside areas of this house are breathtaking. The view is beautiful from front of the house to back. Love the open areas in the house and beautiful views from this house. The arrangement and the decor throughout the house is light and airy.

    Barbara Vogelsang on January 31, 2016 at 11:02 pm
  159. I would have to go with the Terrace Bedroom. The colors call to me in the most serene way.

    TrippinMomma55 on January 31, 2016 at 8:52 pm
  160. Viera Space Coast Stadium for Baseball- Guess where the Washington Nationals Baseball team has spring practice? YEP 15 mile drive just west of I-95! And there is a really nice shopping mall right next door.

    Ashtabulannie on January 31, 2016 at 8:20 pm
  161. I just Love them it alllll!!!!!

    AlmaC on January 31, 2016 at 8:12 pm
  162. I love the Lanai. I did not even know what a Lanai was until now. :) I like the feel of the indoor/outdoor concept. The cozy warm feeling. I like to entertain.

    jarjer on January 31, 2016 at 7:00 pm
  163. OK I am so sick of shoveling snow, and thank goodness it is a balmy 60 degrees and melting fast…… But I have to come back to this blog to rejuvenate my spirt. And the one place I keep returning to is that dock! I wish I could do the star trek teleportation thang, sit myself in a nice comfy chair, with a lovely glass of merlot, and watch the last glow of the sun and wait for all those stars to blink alive. It is all about the view! Knocked it out of the ball park on this view! AND BTW the Ball park is not that far away!

    Ashtabulannie on January 31, 2016 at 4:55 pm
    • mind if I join you out on the dock?

      Straybird on January 31, 2016 at 8:59 pm
      • Straybird, the more the merrier!

        Ashtabulannie on January 31, 2016 at 11:43 pm
  164. I love the terrace room – clean lines, vibrant yet gentle blues – eye view extending into the the blue horizon right from your bed through your double french open doors. My favorite . The entertainment room is over kill too much distractions. The kitchen is well placed and organized.

    Jayalakshmi - Hawaii on January 31, 2016 at 4:32 pm
  165. Dream house definitely. Gorgeous GMC Acadia parked in the drive. A very beautiful home to share with family and friends. My favorite part of the Dream House would be the room that holds the 250K. Wife and daughter would love the media room to read the soon to be released "Fifty Shades of Florida's Beaches" and Geronimo Stilton's " Surf's Up Geronimo! " together. The extra bathrooms would be used by wife and three daughters to remove the salt and sand from their sun bleached hair. As a disabled veteran of the Gulf War, this Dream Home would help me give our family a great platform for their careers and interest. The foundation for our daughters dream of studying Marine Biology and helping at the Marine Science Center. The home plate for our Little League Baseball players dream of playing for the Florida Gators baseball team. Being able to invite friends and family over to enjoy the pool area and our new family pet. Must wake up from this dream and go to and work on the back up plan.

    Gatorfan on January 31, 2016 at 4:03 pm
    • New owners could boat out and watch the SpaceX Falcon Heavy launch and landing of the booster rockets this spring.

      Gatorfan on February 7, 2016 at 11:56 am
  166. I have to say that my favorite parts about this home are the spaces outside and those rooms inside that draw me outside because they showcase the view. The living room is so neutral that my eye just shoots out towards the green beyond the beautiful windows. The Terrace Bedroom in it's soothing hues of blue does the same. As do the Master Bedroom and the Master Balcony, which just screams "Come out here and look at this view!" All of the outdoor spaces, from the courtyard, lanai, pool area, dock and even the front yard with the flanking Royal Palms truly showcase where these lucky homeowners will spend most of their time. Well done!

    Jennifer on January 31, 2016 at 2:55 pm
  167. My husband, my 2 girls and I love vacationing in Florida! Although we don't always have the money to go there, lol. When we found out the dream home was in our favorite spot this year we couldn't believe it!! I work at home, so I'm ready to move! I just know this is our year to win! I don't know if I could truly pick a favorite! I would say as a family, we choose the outside spaces! I can see our family hanging out together enjoying the beautiful weather! I also cannot get past loving the fact it comes with a boat!!!! You really get to go out and enjoy the water! The whole house is perfect though!

    Mareshah on January 31, 2016 at 2:03 pm
  168. I just love the coral colored guest room. This house is for me, and I CLAIM IT. I LOVE Everything about the design and decorating of my new home! The dog house would have to be a play house for kids, since my Jude loves being in the house with me. I could never place him in a dog house outside and alone! This is a Fantastic Home. My hat goes off to all those who participated in decorating and the fine details that you added! I Love COLOR! You All have done a Marvelous job renovating this home! PERFECTION! I'LL BE WAITING FOR YOU TO DECLARE ME THE WINNER OF THIS HOME!

    tonyebuchi on January 31, 2016 at 1:43 pm
  169. For me, I would love to be out in that gorgeous weather, so the lanai would be my favorite hangout along with sitting on the dock. Indoors, however, I do love the Terrace Room. It is so full of light. I love the white with subtle beach tones – who would not love hanging in the hammock and reading a book? It's all gorgeous, though!

    VTHausFan on January 31, 2016 at 1:00 pm
  170. the terrace room all the blues are so relaxing. the media room is awesome. and the outdoor space is perfect. how do you decide which is your favorite? I love the master bathroom.

    linda on January 31, 2016 at 12:41 pm
  171. No screened porch? That would be my favorite room. This is Florida on the water. Mosquitoes would eat you alive outside.

    Bea on January 31, 2016 at 12:07 pm
  172. Beautiful home!! I love how the colors and design flows, brings joy instantly. The location is heavenly. I love everything this home stands for. Freedom of expression and joy. Wonderful job to everyone envolved in creating this gorgeous space.

    A. Gunter on January 31, 2016 at 11:55 am
  173. I watched the video tour and looked at all the images…. I like the lanai with seating, gas grill and fridge in the manufactured stone, a beautiful view and it's covered. Rain or shine it would be where I spend most of my time. My wife said "ewwwwww" in excitement to every pic so I guess her favorite space is all of them. My kids like the media room. They're into drawing, playing video games and listening to music. I do like the 3-car garage too. It looks spacious enough to add a tool box, lawn and gardening supplies, work bench, etc.

    AF1Sgt on January 31, 2016 at 11:45 am
  174. I watched the video tour and looked at all the images…. I like the lanai with seating, gas grill and fridge in the manufactured stone, it's covered and offers a beautiful view IMO. Rain or shine it would be where I spend most of my time. My wife said "oooooooohh" in excitement to every pic so I guess her favorite space is all of them. My kids like the media room. They're into drawing, playing video games and listening to music. I do like the 3-car garage too. It looks spacious enough to add a tool box, lawn and gardening supplies, work bench, etc.

    AF1Sgt on January 31, 2016 at 11:22 am
  175. I'm voting for the beautifully designed bedroom!! I love the colors.

    Bonnie Caldwell on January 31, 2016 at 10:39 am
  176. I don't know any men who would choose to spend more than 10 seconds in the media room. Honestly.

    Nancy on January 31, 2016 at 9:12 am
  177. On this Sunday morning, my favorite place would be breakfast outside with the family. Followed by a day of swimming, sunning, boating. I would be thankful for the pool side bathroom and the outdoor shower so the house would not get wet and messy. With the covered lanai there would be no need to go inside at all – how luxurious!

    TCJ on January 31, 2016 at 8:44 am
  178. love the finishes and the colors. love the marlin string art! But very disappointed on 2 counts. None of the outdoor space is screened in!! The lovely porch off the terrace room would be perfect if screened in. and at the very least the pool area should be in a screened lanai. Also an outdoor tv would be fantastic and be a much better option other than a cramped media room with white sofas. also.,just curious, will the patio tiles resist mold? They are gorgeous!

    carol d on January 31, 2016 at 8:34 am
  179. Looks like we all love the same things about this house,every single detail,best of luck to us all

    Linda Rigby on January 31, 2016 at 8:32 am
  180. I would have to say my favorite space is the master bedroom where I can in joy waking up to the great view in the morning and my dream room . I would love to live here with my mom and feonsay and be close to my brother who I have not seen in ten years . This house would be a dream come true for me and my feonsay and he keeps praying that we win. it would be an army mans dream to come home to. This house would be the greatest thing in our lives. I come from a small town and live in a moble home with my disabled mom and this house would be a blessing to all of my family if I win. We have lost a lot this year with wind storms and the loss of family and friends and all so me being injured trying to fix our damaged roof . I had a ladder fall on my head.My feonsay being wounded and my car braking down. This house I would give any thing in the world to have to put the biggest smile on my feonsay face and he will be coming home in febuary from being away for three years in combat and this house would help him with his ptsd .We would have the biggest wedding and everyone would be invited if I win but I pray that I do. It would a dream come true for both of us.

    Gail Nesbitt on January 31, 2016 at 4:38 am
  181. My favorite would be the outdoor areas. After all those Army parachute jumps, we would have to do some changes for a downstairs bedroom. My husband doesn't do stairs very well. I must say though, the kitchen is pretty terrific.

    LighthouseKid on January 30, 2016 at 10:46 pm
    • Hope if you are the winner, some help would come your way for that downstairs bedroom. My thanks and appreciation to your Husband for his service for us. May you be able to enjoy life no matter where you live. My best wishes to you and your Husband.

      Grammynan on January 31, 2016 at 7:56 pm
  182. I wish everyone else felt like "Real Floridian" does so I would be the only one entering the contest and win this beautiful home! LOL..but it is obvious to me by the comments on the blog that he's on his own :(

    Mayra on January 30, 2016 at 5:25 pm
  183. Hay my son and his wife and children live in Florida and they say this is Florida colors the house and outside and the boat for sure you do not live their with out a boat this has been done so well thank you guy. The kitchen as you stand behind the island and look out to the pool the master bedroom I could live in this room the deck off this bedroom awesome the sports room super bowl heaven 50 inches will work this room is so nice you can have girl tea the next day.

    janet on January 30, 2016 at 5:09 pm
  184. Oh My Love….Location,Quality and Style !
    The HGTV Merritt Island Dream Home Dream has it all ! ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!

    Jacksbabe on January 30, 2016 at 5:05 pm
  185. I love the terrace bedroom the best. Very calming.

    However, I have never been a fan of ceilings the same color as the walls. My first step into this house I'd have a nice ceiling white on them.

    The living room, media room and dining room are gorgeous, but the color of the upholstery is hardly kid friendly. I couldn't imagine a dream home without children.

    Valerie on January 30, 2016 at 3:59 pm
  186. I have to agree with pattieclemm. the hundred year roofing tile and the flooring with it's 100 year warrantee plus the windows and doors, the cement siding …. All the things that create a strong home that will stand for years to come.

    Eugenia27 on January 30, 2016 at 3:40 pm
    • I agree. That's what I love about the Scripps builds. You always know you are getting a well build home.

      Lindingo on January 30, 2016 at 7:01 pm
  187. I'm going to have to go with the Media Room. It's elegant yet fun. It has my favorite colors all rolled into one room. Perfect for entertaining, yet set apart for some quiet reading time .

    Michelle on January 30, 2016 at 2:29 pm
  188. I look at the home in all parts. The to the hundred year roofing tile with under laiminate. The Bellawood flooring with 100 year warranty. The cement laite siding. The cement stucko. and the Trek composite decking. The weather resistant doors and windows. The windows, doors and appliances that were give to chariety are all of my favorite parts of the home. My other favorite is all of the out door spaces and the view. Taking great care of this property and it's upkeep. This home was made to last.

    pattieclemm on January 30, 2016 at 12:32 pm
    • Yes, Those are all my favorite things also. The construction and the bones of the house are the most important. Those items that may not look pretty but are what keep froufrou safe, those are the things I like the most.

      Eugenia27 on January 30, 2016 at 3:36 pm
  189. I dream of waking up in that beautiful blue terrace suite every night since the first time I saw it. The blue is so soothing and easy. I love it! I also invasion myself waking out side to lounge in the sunny day on a cozy chair in that open outstanding lanai. I make a great kale salad to enjoy along the pool side with a yummy bloody mary to wash it down. It is a matter of mood. If i feel like slumbering in my cozy bed, I vote the terrace room. When I want to interact with the world I say the lanai is my vote. They are both winners in their own ways, like us all. Thank you HGTV Dream Team for creating a lovely home.

    Tristan Riabo on January 30, 2016 at 12:15 pm
  190. Agreeing with most of the bloggers, I too love everything I have seen so far about this home, so I will just list in order my fav's. 1. the entry to the home from the driveway, 2. The outdoor kitchen, and the entire back yard. 3. The kitchen, wow the meals I would prepare. 4. The Master suite and terrace, how romantic, peaceful, and serene. 4. The gathering spaces are so roomy and fun, we would have lot's of get togethers here. This home is just that a home, a home where the heart resides and thrives.

    rcvannatter on January 30, 2016 at 11:24 am
  191. I love the entire thing! I would love to live there.

    joan whittaker on January 30, 2016 at 11:15 am
  192. From the palm tree lined driveway to the spectacular river views, this home is a dream come true. Hubby and I have been looking for a house in Brevard County for about nine months now. This home hits all of our needs and then some. Big enough to host family and friends yet small enough when it's just the two of us we wouldn't get lost. A great dock and three car garage for him and a beautiful kitchen, lanai and pool for me.

    But the best part of the dream? Aside from this amazing home would be watching hubby's late April Cape Canaveral launch from the boat dock surrounded by our children. He's launch 30 spacecraft over the last three decades and we have never witnessed one. Truly a dream come true.

    Gina on January 30, 2016 at 10:55 am
    • Someone to be proud of for all the work he does. My thanks to him for his work. Wish you the best.

      Grammynan on January 30, 2016 at 10:02 pm
      • Thank you for your kind comment. Up until a few years ago most of his launches were overseas. We're grateful there has been a commercial resurgence in Florida for Floridians as well as the industry.

        Gina on January 31, 2016 at 9:09 am
  193. I am just so in Love with this Home..In my opinion, this is the BEST home ever created by HGTV dream home series.!!!.. I am in aww of it everyday when I look at it, it's so very uncanny, every detail, colors…perfect !!..A little spiritual, it's as if all these talented people who worked on this project, were pulling everyone of my design loves right out of my Love it ALL..!

    Josie Swope on January 30, 2016 at 9:58 am
    • and I even like the canned beans sitting by the grill, the colors,

      Josie Swope on January 30, 2016 at 10:02 am
  194. To the builders and the designer,,don't listen to haters you can't please everyone,you guys did a fantastic job be proud of the work you all did,I'm proud of y'all,it truly is beautiful,,pick me they are clearly already rich and don't want this wonderful home,yes home

    Linda Rigby on January 30, 2016 at 9:35 am
  195. I love love the kitchen,I'm a great cook,but every space in this amazing home would make my day if I won ,I am originally from Florida but I now live in Pennsylvania,where the cold is really starting to take its toll,,would love to come home and show my children who are 12 and 16 where I'm from ,I think the builders and the designer did a fantastic job,kudos to them,you will make one of us truly blessed,a pool I've never even had one of them.I love everything about all the rooms from the color scheme to the chandeliers,,my boyfriend of 14 years would love the grill..I wish I could win this I enter every day since December 29 two times daily,,but best of luck to all

    linda rigby on January 30, 2016 at 9:28 am
  196. i love the media room and dining room. i hate the mural in the living room. it should be in color and a beach scene of palm trees sand and ocean.also don't like the box frame in master bedroom. love the chandelier and tall posts on the bed would have been enough.

    suzanne kanuf on January 30, 2016 at 7:36 am
  197. Definitely the outside space. Love it, however a comment on the media room — REALLY? its overstuffed and everything but a media room – the TV is blocked, there's no room to move and no good angle to watch a game not too mention too busy, crowded and overstuffed to "invite a crowd". Clearly BPF is anti-TV since each room where one exists he blocks or puts it in a location where it is not usable. I always do some level of rearranging should I be lucky enough to win the DH and this room would be a small den or hubbys office (media room would be the great room) but I would throw out the furry cubes (hideous) allowing access to the outside doors and almost all of the art work throughout the house. BPF and I are on totally different pages!!

    paradiselife on January 30, 2016 at 7:17 am
    • looking at your thumbs-up, more than one person agrees with you.

      Eugenia27 on January 30, 2016 at 3:32 pm
  198. I would have to say the whole house it so open planed that I love how the décor comes to gather and I so hope I win for my feonsay that will be coming home soon we hope ,he has been deployed three years and I think his favoret would be the boat and doc where he can rest be for he would have to go back to combat and the doc would be a great place where we could finely get married he was shot in combat this last June so we could not get married and now he has healed and still on deployment it would be our first home if we win. This home would mean a lot to Jeff and I and it would be a dream come true.

    Gail Nesbitt on January 30, 2016 at 1:42 am
    • Gail, I wish you and your fiance Jeff all the best. Hope you can both rest and finally get married on the dock. I can see why it would be his favorite space. Good luck!

      DH2016 on January 30, 2016 at 8:23 am
  199. The living room/kitchen combo is very inviting and perfect for entertaining. Thanks to the french doors in living room, when opened, it gives you an even larger space to entertain your family and friends with the breath-taking river views as your backdrop. It was a tough choice but this is favorite part of the dream house. It flows so well and it doesn't hurt that it is gorgeous.

    BethH227 on January 30, 2016 at 1:23 am
  200. Ok so this is a hard one for me because I love so much about this home . I really can't pick just one room. Let start with the front , I love the drive way it give u the feel of the home with out even seeing it yet. Then there the little breakfast table by the front door that(that's what I would use it for:) ). when u open up the door u see the view . it is a amazing view!!. Then I see the clean white living room with the suffering mural covering the whole wall. Just breath taking .. And the kitchen it just screams come cook let's have a party!. The media room with all the bright colors , so great. Then the MASTER BEDROOM AND ON SUITE WOW need I say more.. And the Lanai and outside kitchen so incredible i could spend hrs there. O and let's not for get the doggy size dream house perfect…..the dock and boat blissful. I love this house. Every room and part is done great HGTV crew

    Lisa on January 29, 2016 at 10:54 pm
  201. I can't decide on a favorite. I like the bedroom suites, the media room, the lanai, the kitchen with all its storage and countertop space, the three car garage, the dock….

    dreamn_again on January 29, 2016 at 9:38 pm
    • funny, you and Lessie are in the same shape.

      Eugenia27 on January 30, 2016 at 3:31 pm
  202. This has to be the smallest Dream House I have ever seen. It looks like you remodeled an existing house. And the eyesore of the old, rotting wooden fence around the property is astounding. Being from Florida, Floridians do not decorate homes like this. The surfing mural in the living room is straight out of the 1980's and tacky. And putting the TV into what is really a small office off of the dining area with all that junk covering up the TV, is not realistic. There should be a TV in the main living room along with an Entertainment center/fireplace where the ugly mural is now. The Interior Designer is absolutely the worst designer, as the entire house looks like a vomited up mix of cactus, fish, oddly placed crystal chandeliers that are more appropriate in a large house, and aqua. The artwork looks like it was done by a small child. Tiles in the bathrooms and kitchen were a popular style in the 1970's. The tub in the master bath just oddly placed right in front of the vanity in the middle of the bathroom is just horrible. This is not a dream house. It looks like any number of garish, small vacation homes for rent all over Florida. I do not think you actually consulted with any real Floridian builders or designers for this whole concept.

    Real Floridian on January 29, 2016 at 5:32 pm
    • Can you go to zillow and bring us back a link to a home that is Florida dream-worthy to you? Just curious. lol

      P.S. There are no tiles now in the kitchen or bathrooms. It's that beautiful wooden flooring throughout.

      Lindingo on January 30, 2016 at 12:19 pm
      • I think they mean the wall tiles, not floor tiles, in the kitchen and bathrooms looking like the 70's. Real Floridian brings up some valid points. The wall mural and abstract art are very taste specific (along with the bold wall colors). Many bloggers have commented on the media room being not so user friendly as well as thinking the master tub is placed awkwardly. And having rented out property in Florida I understand the point of this looking typical in many ways. However, it was designed inside and out by Florida natives. I think it was designed to reflect an updated Florida style. Not a huge BPF fan, but IMHO parts of this home are beautiful.

        DH2016 on January 30, 2016 at 2:14 pm
        • This is a reply to Lindingo and Real Floridian. Don't know why it shows up here too. This blog is doing weird things lately…..

          DH2016 on January 30, 2016 at 2:25 pm
          • I knew you were replying to us, and thanks for explaining about the tile. I know, other people have also had same complaints, but it's rarer to see someone who dislikes so many things. That's what amused me. I still hope Real Floridian will post a link reflecting her/her dreams. Always fun to see how people differ.

            I think the big gap between us and your response is because the system posts big batches of comments from new posters all at once instead of in real time. After the first post, I think their comments do show up in real time.

            Lindingo on January 30, 2016 at 6:59 pm
    • I did not like all the art in the house, but as an art collector I have my own wonderful pieces that I would hang and display. I do however, agree with you on the wall mural! My thoughts are paint over it. The Media Room is a little crowded, but I would also repurpose the items to other rooms or gift them to someone. But, I can see myself in each and every room. As far as the tiles go, I don't go with the "trend", I go with what "I" like!

      tonyebuchi on January 31, 2016 at 1:50 pm
    • Don't real Floridians live out on the lanai, anyway? Score one big win out there as far as I am concerned!
      Love, another Real Floridian Who Lives Outside! :)

      MamaSue2 on February 2, 2016 at 4:56 pm
    • There are many people who would LOVE to have this house, especially with all the amenities included, for FREE, no less. I am sure those of us who are not as fortunate as others would consider winning this as a real blessing!! I know I would, disabled and would love to be able to return to Florida, miss it greatly. Please feel free to discontinue any plans you have of attempting to win this home. Sounds like you don't need it or would appreciate it as some of us would. We won't miss your applying or your cras remarks!

      Barbara on February 2, 2016 at 7:41 pm
    • Now, Now! Let's not go there! The Home may not be to your taste but what I can say is that it's to my taste and certainly to countless others . I may not be a Floridian but I am a original Texas Island Girl who has a huge soft spot for style. The surfing Mural is perfect because it reminds you that you are "Surfing on the Waves of Life". That is why its in the Living room. It's a nice Conversational piece, I mean, you do see that pool right out side the back, don't you? It's sparking intrigue while hosting entertainment. And really, who needs a fireplace in Florida? You mean to tell me, you'd rather sit in the living room to watch Television instead of a more intimate setting such as the Media room. I have four children, three of them are teens and the youngest is eleven. I'd rather be in a good conversation and doing some family activity with my children in the living room or outside, not sitting by a Fireplace watching TV. I mean really, time passes by quick and they'll be almost off to College. I grew up in a home where my Mother worked 16 hours a day as a Director of Nursing for a Local Nursing Home, by the time that she made it home, it was time for her to sleep. We rarely had time to entertain oh but when we had time to do anything, she'd have some FUN things for us to do so I decided that I'd make sure me and my kids spend as much time away from the television as possible. I'm a CNA by trade and I can't possibly waist my time lounging when it's so much time to spend with my Loved ones. Anyways, moving forward, You say that the Bath tub is oddly placed. 0_o ?? What? This is to soak in, It's placed exactly where you can light a candle while you soak in the ambiance of the lit candle reflecting off the Mirror. You do have your opinion but I have to disagree with you Real Floridian.

      Rakia on February 3, 2016 at 12:16 pm
      • I agree with you also living in the Keyes half my life & surfing on the East coast! I love the house & losing my mom a few weeks ago, My mom would say this home has ole style conch charm!!! Now I know she will be smiling down on me while I am sipping on cold Bush BEER & singing "WE HAD IT ALL ,JUST LIKE BOGIE AND BACALL!!!

        barbara on February 24, 2016 at 9:57 pm
    • I don't own a home,,, to me this IS a dream house! AND I absolutely love the surfing mural. 70's style is in. You come across as an arrogant, angry person. I would love to win this home,, it's way more than most people need and I would gladly call it home.

      linda on February 15, 2016 at 1:54 am
    • If I owned this house I'd have to immediately take down that hideous kitchen tile. It's awful!!

      Judy on April 18, 2016 at 10:54 pm
  203. No matter how I try, my favorite spots in this Florida Dream Home end up in a 3-way tie!

    With its terra cotta walls, coral accents and cozy coastal appeal, I could easily spend a day or a decade enjoying life settled into the dreamy guest bedroom.

    As for that truly romantic ambiance of the teal and soft summer whites in the master bedroom; well, sit me up in the comfy canopy bed to drink in the views or prop me up in one of the balcony's teak armchairs to soak up the sunshine and I'll never tire of waking in paradise every morning and counting my blessings every evening.

    When the outdoors beckon, as they would more often than not, send me outside to wine and dine in tropical splendor on the covered lanai, dip me in the pool now and again for a quick refresher and then walk me out to the boat dock to sit for hours watching the dolphins play the days away.

    Lounge, swim, sip and dip. Sounds like a good life to me!

    DBCoop on January 29, 2016 at 5:08 pm
    • Amen…lol

      MaineBlkBear on January 29, 2016 at 5:19 pm
    • I like your idea:):) those dolphins will get so excited to see the winner !! Jumping with joy for sure:):)

      gbfla on January 29, 2016 at 5:28 pm
    • DB you said it all. You couldn't have said it better. This home is in your heart as is in mine.

      pattieclemm on January 30, 2016 at 12:21 pm
    • Sounds like a plan DBCoop! You always come up with such things and then to end with that last line. Great deal, as always. Wish you and everyone a pleasant evening.

      Grammynan on January 30, 2016 at 9:36 pm
    • I'm going for the covered lanai, Coop. Can't beat the beauty of that outdoor setting.

      DesignABCs on January 31, 2016 at 2:44 pm
    • Coop slide on over! I coming to join you on the dock with my glass of merlot to swat some bugs and watch the sunset. But not to worry the evening breeze will blow those pesky buggers away. OH! Did ya just see that fish jumping out of the water? Ahhh life is good. Does not get any better. Taking a sip of wine and deep breath. sigh. Yes life is good!

      Ashtabulannie on January 31, 2016 at 10:40 pm
    • Major ditto to you my dear!! Spot on visualization and artful description…puts me there almost as well as my own visualization:) Im still impressed with the styling…eclectic, funk, classy, bold! I love that it doesnt scream wanna-be, easy, uninspired beachy (flamingos, shells). This space coast dreamer thinks its Stellar!!

      Amanda D Stephens on March 6, 2016 at 11:10 pm
  204. The kitchen, for sure. LOVE the cabinets. Dark below, where the kids will be reaching, and white above, for a bright, clean, fresh feel! It's where I'd spend 50% my at-home time, and I enjoy company as I work away…so it helps that there is plenty of space for someone to lend a hand, or to just hang out in the comfy seats and chat for a bit.

    wyofam on January 29, 2016 at 4:48 pm
    • I'm on board with that:):)

      gbfla on January 29, 2016 at 5:21 pm
  205. I really like all the rooms and outdoor spaces, but I'm in love with the patio bedroom. It's so soothing and perfect for relaxing and taking afternoon naps. The hanging chair is cool too. Perfect for reading, or listening to music while playing app games or watching HGTV on your device. Great view of the backyard and the water. This will definitely be my room

    JonesGirl717 on January 29, 2016 at 3:39 pm
  206. It is so hard to pick just one spot! I'll give it a try though. If I am alone, I'd say the master bedroom. I'd slowly get out of that luxurious bed soak in the coastal views then make my way to the outside balcony for a few, then off to the master bathroom and a relaxing soak in that glorious tub (don't get me started on the chandelier!) If I am with my son, he loves to cook with me so the kitchen and outdoor grilling area while we 'argue' over who gets to chose the music on the Bose. With my daughter? We are on 'her' terrace because she already claimed that room. With my hubby? Outside in those teak loungers at sunset with a glass of wine. With the puppy? taking him for a swim off the dock. That sounds perfect today!

    TCJ on January 29, 2016 at 3:02 pm
  207. I do love all the rooms :) :) most of the time will be spent outside .its too beautiful in fla to spend inside too long. Other wise the kitchen is where the heart is:):) just my thoughts.

    gbfla on January 29, 2016 at 2:36 pm
  208. This is hard, going with the media room. Close to every thing, outdoors, snacks from the kitchen, half bath around the corner. Perfect place to curl up and read a book or simply watch tv.

    filanddell on January 29, 2016 at 2:20 pm
  209. Being from Maine in the cold winter, I'd be ready for some sun, fun, and relaxation . The covered lanai offers a perfect mix of some sun near the pool and cover when it gets a bit too much. Bring in the BIG screen tv, comfy outdoor couch and we have paradise. The terrace sweet and living room are my favorite indoor rooms! Like everyone else hoping a blogger steals the show and wins the 20th anniversary Dream Home!

    MaineBlkBear on January 29, 2016 at 2:16 pm
    • The Terrace Bedroom and the Living Room are my favorites too:)

      joyce on January 29, 2016 at 4:39 pm
  210. This home was definitely made for entertaining! Inside or out, the spaces are amazing! My favorite part is how even inside the home, you can still enjoy the natural light and outside views. My two most favorite parts of this amazing dream home would be the pool patio and dock area, and the master suite and bathroom which are truly a retreat!

    Mayra on January 29, 2016 at 1:10 pm
  211. I love the lighting and enormous shower in the terrace bathroom!

    Carainohio on January 29, 2016 at 12:55 pm
  212. I like the idea of working the tv into the wall design…I tried to do something similar in my home with watercolor paintings, The colors are all soothing and the inside really reflects the outside..all beautifully done!

    Susan Wick on January 29, 2016 at 11:44 am
  213. I love all the windows in the house. It really lights up the house and makes all the colors pop.

    jennifer on January 29, 2016 at 11:39 am
  214. Lanai? Why, yes I can!

    nycfirefighter on January 29, 2016 at 11:36 am
  215. You really can't go wrong with any of these spaces. They are all so beautifully decorated and designed. I can imagine my entire family enjoying all that the Dream Home has to offer. Good luck to everyone entering for their chance to win! :)

    Shalina on January 29, 2016 at 11:36 am
  216. I'm a cooking fool. Love the Kitchen and the outdoor grill areas. That Master Bedroom looks like an invitation to sleep in or just lounge about.
    Question??? No piece of the Dream contest this year?

    DP315 on January 29, 2016 at 11:36 am
  217. I would have to go with the lanai

    Theresa on January 29, 2016 at 11:20 am
  218. I love everything about this house, it is by far my favorite so far. However, since I would rather be outside than inside, I have to choose all the outside areas.

    crusin on January 29, 2016 at 11:09 am
  219. No brainer. Outside. Install a hot tub with waterfall, pretty underwater lights, sound system, TV and all easily controlled from my tablet. Why go anywhere else. Even if it is 47 F you can sit in the hot tub drink a Manhattan and gaze up at the stars and any rocket blasts that pass above. Oh Brother! Missing that hot tub!

    Ashtabulannie on January 29, 2016 at 11:01 am
  220. Meet me out on the lanai! It would be so fun to say lanai everyday! What a dream! I cannot believe the dream home is in our favorite vacation area! I would be spending a lot more time in Florida than North Dakota when we win!

    Erica on January 29, 2016 at 10:48 am
  221. I love it all!! The terrace suite is beautiful! My favorite colors.

    Julie on January 29, 2016 at 10:32 am
  222. The covered lanai is amazing! A great idea to have an outdoor grill and outdoor shower! I DVR the Dream Home Tour and made my family watch a few times…just so they know what to expect when we win! THANKS HGTV! And good luck to all the other hopefuls!

    SC Tamayo on January 29, 2016 at 9:15 am
  223. It is hard to decide on what my favorite space would be. I love to cook so I guess the kitchen, love the open space, and the out door grill and the lanai. There is so much space. I just love all of it. This home would bring me back to my home state and back on the Indian river witch I miss so dearly. Even if I don't win it I would have to make plans to come home for at least a week this year. Just miss it oh so very much.

    Margaret Perkins on January 29, 2016 at 9:12 am
  224. I'm voting for the outside entertainment areas. I would hang out near that Napolean grill, have my Bose speakers playing whatever music the moment inspires, enjoying my Ethan Allen table and chairs. When I got hot I'd jump into that pool for a few laps. When done I would move into that convenient pool powder room, clean up using the Delta faucets and leave my wet clothes and towel in the Samsung washer and dryer. Very convenient!

    DH2016 on January 29, 2016 at 8:57 am
  225. Considering my physical state, I'd say my favorites are the outdoor spaces because it gives me the impression that I'm truly enjoying my new home even though I'm not physically capable of moving around as I would like and the master bedroom Because it allows me to easily enjoy the visual beauty of Florida. But I also love the entrance to the home because it excites my senses and I can't wait to get inside and personally experience all each room has to offer.

    Lessie on January 29, 2016 at 8:23 am
    • Now that we know your favoriteS, which one is your favorite?

      Eugenia27 on January 30, 2016 at 3:29 pm
    • Love that space. Just like in Seinfeld episode Serenity Now…:) Living outdoor space is so peaceful and tranquil to the soul.

      kd652 on February 12, 2016 at 11:25 am
      • Love those surfers reminds me of Santa Cruz.Free from it all and a wild ride to the shore.
