HGTV will construct the first HGTV Smart Home in the beach community of Paradise Key South Beach in Jacksonville Beach, Fla. Inspired by coastal Northeast Florida architecture, the home will feature the latest developments in home technology and green living, as HGTV enhances its successful HGTV Green Home concept and incorporates many of the energy-saving features previously exhibited in the HGTV Green Home.

HGTV viewers can enter for a chance to win the home next spring when the HGTV Smart Home Giveaway opens for entries in April 2013, and can follow construction progress at www.hgtv.com/smarthome.

“The features and functionality of this home are like nothing we’ve ever offered in HGTV home giveaways, and set the standard for creative spaces and ways that consumers can use emerging technology to improve their homes,” said Jack Thomasson, HGTV house planner.

Smart home technology connects many of a home’s appliances and devices, and allows occupants to monitor energy use and control home systems such as security, interior climate, lighting and other electronics.

Designed by architect Mike Stauffer, AIA, and constructed by Glenn Layton Homes, the HGTV Smart Home will measure approximately 2,400 square feet and feature more than 1,000 square feet of covered porches, decks and pool. The project will use primarily local labor and materials.

“As long-time builders in Northeast Florida, we’ve pulled the best of what we know and applied it to our daily operation while doing what we love, which is creating quality homes,” said builder Glenn Layton.

The pedestrian and bicycle-friendly Paradise Key South Beach neighborhood lies just five blocks from the Atlantic Ocean and a quick 20-minute drive from downtown Jacksonville, one of Florida’s most vibrant communities. Footpaths and wooden walking bridges dot the development, which embraces Florida-friendly landscaping and an indigenous plant palette to reduce lawn maintenance.
