Vermont Business Magazine HGTV has announced that the winner of the 2022 HGTV Dream Home is Karey Wolstenholm from Overland Park, Kansas. The price is valued at more than $2.4 million and includes the brand new, approximately 3,090 square foot three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom home and all of its furnishings. The prize also includes an all-new 2022 Grand Wagoneer and $250,000 from Rocket Mortgage. The home in Warren, Vermont was designed by Dylan Eastman, built by builder Big Country Built with interior design by Brian Patrick Flynn.

Wolstenholm was drawn from over 142 million entries in the contest, which ran from December 28, 2021 to February 17, 2022 and garnered the most entries in HGTV Dream Home history. She entered the raffle every day, twice a day, as she has done in the past with other HGTV Home Giveaways, including HGTV Smart Home and HGTV Urban Oasis. Wolstenholm is a big fan of the outdoors and loved the land the house sits on and all the outdoor amenities. She was also blown away by the overall design and sees the house as “a complete package”.

Wolstenholm owns a printing and promotional products business with her husband, Rick. They live together in his hometown of Overland Park where they have lived for nine years with their children and their dog. Wolstenholm is a huge HGTV fan and has almost always turned it on at home. Her favorite shows are Hometown, Fixer Upper, Fixer to Fabulous, and Love It or List It, among others, and she enjoys seeing the before and after of all the houses. She loves all things interior design and fashion, and her friends and family often ask her for advice.

The 2022 HGTV Dream Home is located in Warren, VT, an idyllic mountain town in the heart of the Mad River Valley known for its stunning views and seasonal outdoor activities with magnificent mountains, lush forests and thousands kilometers of hiking. The luxurious and modern mountain cabin is inspired by nature and has a modern design that takes inspiration from the surrounding Vermont forest with earthy greens and rustic oranges.

The first floor has an expansive open floor plan with a large full kitchen with new state-of-the-art appliances and a full dining area. From the dining room, you access a cozy living room with a two-sided fireplace that is connected to the three-season veranda.

The home has excellent outdoor features including a screened porch, a heated pool with a built-in hot tub, two seating areas with fire pits and an outdoor BBQ area and dining area. The upper level has a more industrial feel with a loft featuring an architectural wall application and a full-size Murphy bed. Down the hall from the loft is the master suite, which has a classic cabin style with a modern twist. The home also features a full guest bedroom perfect for short or long term guests with a kitchenette and full bath.
