HGTV’s latest Dream Home is in Portsmouth — not Newport

Entry period for sprawling new Cape Code starts Dec. 28

Posted

PORTSMOUTH — HGTV’s official announcement may say its 2021 Dream Home is located in “Newport, Rhode Island,” but don’t let that fool you.

The pay television channel is celebrating 25 years of home giveaways with a “stunning coastal oasis” sitting on more than 3,300 square feet in the area of McCorrie and Vanderbilt lanes in our hometown of Portsmouth.

HGTV, a member of the Discovery, Inc. family of brands, will award the newly built, fully furnished residence to the grand prize winner, along with $250,000 from Rocket Mortgage and a 2021 motorhome from Camping World.

Built to capture Newport’s New England charm, the HGTV Dream Home 2021 was built and designed by Middletown builder JPS Construction & Design with trend-setting interior design by Brian Patrick Flynn.

“We knew we had to pick a location that would wow our viewers for the 25th anniversary, and Newport has every element a destination needs to provide that including natural beauty, aspirational lifestyle and decadent architecture,” said Mr. Flynn, still referring to the City by the Sea as the home’s locale. “Every detail about the home, from the construction to the design elements, capture the spirit of Newport and the grandness of the HGTV Dream Home, making our 25th home the most impressive yet.”

The three-story Cape Code style home includes four bedrooms, three full bathrooms and two half-bathrooms. The home is full of modern nautical design and rich colors that honor coastal New England charm, such as deep reds and blues, with neutral tones and pops of pattern, according to HGTV.

Upon entering the home, visitors are welcomed by high ceilings contributing to the impressive living room. The open floor plan allows for an easy flow between the living room and the dining room, which lives off of the chef’s kitchen that includes a large island, state of the art appliances and tons of storage. 

The upstairs is home to four bedrooms, including the master, which includes a walk-in closet and bathroom en-suite. Up one more flight of stairs is the rooftop deck, with a wet bar and spectacular water views that cannot be rivaled.

The official entry period for HGTV Dream Home 2021 is 9 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 28, through 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 17, 2021. Eligible fans can enter for a chance to win twice per day at HGTV.com, where they will also find full details and the official rules.

Viewers can tune-in to the one-hour special HGTV Dream Home 2021 Special on HGTV on Friday, Jan. 1, at 8 p.m. with a special pre-premiere available on HGTV GO on Monday, Dec. 28. Viewers will have the opportunity to go behind-the-scenes with host Tiffany Brooks and Mr. Flynn as they give an inside look at the home’s build and design process.
