CINCINNATI -- An Oakley revival! A newly renovated home in Cincinnati is the HGTV Urban Oasis for 2018.
The neighborhood is already one of Cincinnati's hottest markets for homes. Now, thousands of people will be vying to live there.
Why Cincinnati? An online promo for the sweepstakes points out that Cincinnati is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts, thrill seekers and foodies.
The home on Hyde Park Avenue is a classic Dutch Colonial with three bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths.
Dan Faires is the Build Manager for the project. He calls the remodel an absolute dream.
“Great architectural design and a new addition opened this house up, drastically improving the layout and flow of the home, while maintaining the historic charm and original character," Faires told HGTV. “I am slightly biased, but I feel this is one of the most dramatic transformations HGTV has ever done!"
An Over-the-Rhine architecture and design firm, Platte Architecture + Design, played a huge role in the project, providing the architectural design for the renovation.
Based on the before-and-after photos, the front porch was completely redone. Several walls were torn down to open up space. The landscaping got a complete update as well.
The builders and designers kept a homey vibe with a modern twist and the backyard has a great space for entertaining.
You can enter your name in the sweepstakes starting on Oct. 1 at 9 a.m. on HGTV’s website. Good luck!
HGTV refers to the location of the home as the "area of Hyde Park." Technically, the house is located in the Oakley neighborhood.
