HGTV Smart Homes are in a class of their own and we could not have been more thrilled to be a part of this exclusive list of home builders. The homes are known for their clever construction incorporating advanced technology, gadgets and smart solutions to enhance entertaining and everyday living. Designers, architects, and builders from both HGTV and Homes By Dickerson worked together to carefully plan every detail of the custom construction to ensure this home was highly innovative and energy-efficient for the tech-savvy homeowner.
The Homes By Dickerson plan chosen was a three-level traditional craftsman home boasting approximately 3,300-square-feet with four bedrooms and five bathrooms. 2016 HGTV Smart Home host and interior designer Tiffany Brooks brought touches of rustic oak, metals and stone to the design and combined them with a cool color palette that provided an unexpected contrast of traditional materials juxtaposed with modern and eclectic touches. In addition, she sourced art and sculpture from many of Raleigh’s local talent to further extend the custom flair of this stunning home. The floorplan featured three levels that provide plenty of room to either spread out or gather for family fun. The main level included a master bedroom suite, open kitchen, dining room, living room and screened porch. Downstairs, the home included an additional bedroom suite as well as a media room and exercise room. Completing the layout, the upper level boasted a home office and two additional bedrooms. This fully-furnished 2016 HGTV Smart Home was Energy Star 3.0 and Bronze-level Green certified, featuring products from some of the top national brands.
It is no wonder that Raleigh was chosen to be the 2016 destination for the HGTV Smart Home search as the city itself, a center of Southern culture and home of Research Triangle Park, is the perfect balance between artistic design and cutting-edge technology.
