Tickets for the 2015 St. Jude Dream Home sold out in record time. It has a lot to do with this year's amazing house, which is located in Hickory Withe.
Whether you're looking for convenience, comfort, style, or serenity, this house has it all.
The 3,600 square-foot, $450,000 home boasts plenty of room to dine, entertain, relax, and enjoy the neighborhood.
When you go through the front entrance, you'll find a tornado shelter that can fit six people.
Handcrafted iron rails and a banister transform an ordinary staircase into one with style and grace.
Shaw Flooring is a national sponsor for each of the St. Jude Dream homes, and this year, the company installed hardwood floors to complement the soft colors used throughout the home.
Both the open-concept kitchen and living room floor plan are ideal for entertaining, and the spaces really pop with brick wall accents around the fireplace and in the kitchen's back splash.
The kitchen and laundry rooms are equipped with state-of-the-art touch faucets that respond intelligently to touch gestures.
The house is not shy on counter space, sporting an extra bar and island in the kitchen, which is fully equipped with marble counter tops, plenty of lighting, and stainless steel appliances.
Worried about burglars? You won't need to be if you win this dream home.
The entire house is defended with a video surveillance system that captures the entire perimeter of the house.
The garage sports enough space for three cars and extra storage.
Under the hood, the house's air conditioning is powered by three top-of-the-line HVAC Trane systems.
The air conditioner is 95 percent efficient, meaning that in the dead of summer it will cost less than $100 to cool the house.
The master bedroom has a beautiful view of the backyard. It connects to the master bathroom, which has one of the most unique features of the house: a spa.
The owner's retreat comes with dual vanities, a deep claw-foot soaking tub, elaborate tiles on the floor, and a shower equipped with 13 shower heads.
The master closet is nothing to scoff at either. It's spacious with plenty of room for clothes. And there is even an island in the middle, complete with marble counter tops.
Upstairs, guests will find two bedrooms with a Jack and Jill bathroom and a media room already wired for surround sound.
Guests will enjoy a laundry shoot that delivers dirty clothes directly to the first floor laundry room. Also in the laundry room, you will find a fold-up drying rack for added convenience.
Outside, there is room to enjoy a three-season screened in porch with a large, gas fireplace.
A few steps away, there's a stone fire pit and benches perfectly placed for everyone to enjoy.
Remember, all of these features will only cost the lucky winner $100. Next year, don't hesitate to give yourself a chance to win your dream home.
