In the words of Coastal Living Magazine, Kiawah Island, South Carolina is a dream town, the perfect location for the HGTV Dream Home 2013. It's located alongside tranquil tidal marshland and pristine beaches in Indigo Park, the first Leed certified community within a residential resort.

Jack Thomasson, acclaimed Dream Home "home-planner" and Monica Pedersen, host of HGTV's "Designed to Sell" give us a tour of this magnificent home.

The three-bedroom, 3,000-square-foot home includes a double-height great room, a large gourmet kitchen with an adjacent pantry and laundry room, a central dining area and a multi-purpose loft space overlooking the great room. Unique elements of the home include solid beam trusses, heavy timber exterior supports with exposed custom steel connections, a spacious rear deck with a plunge pool and carefully placed windows for generous views of the serene tidal marsh grasses and waterways that lead to the Atlantic Ocean.

Kiawah can be explored easily by bike, boat or kayak. In addition to appreciating the tranquility of nature, residents can also enjoy Kiawah Islands’ many options for dining, shopping, fishing, golfing and spas. Or, for a day or night in the city, travel just 21 miles down the road to historic Charleston, SC.

The HGTV Dream Home is part of a grand prize package valued at more than $2 million. It will be awarded in March 2013. The HGTV Dream Home Giveaway runs through February 15, 2013. You can enter daily at:
