HGTVs 2012 "Dream Home" will be a 45-minute commute from Salt Lake City.
And some lucky person will win the whole thing.
The cable channel has chosen to build a 4,000-square-foot modern western ranch house at the River Meadows Ranch development, north of Heber City and Midway in Wasatch County, for the annual sweepstakes.
The location of the still-to-be-built "Dream Home" was announced today on the HGTV website. It's the 16th year for the channel's giveaway. The first house, chosen in 1997, is in Jackson Hole, Wyo. The 2011 house is in Stowe, Vt.
The development, on the banks of the Provo River, is about 45 minutes' drive from Salt Lake City, and 20 minutes from Park City.
"The Provo River corridor is a spectacular site and will inspire the extraordinary home design that HGTV viewers have to come to expect in the HGTV Dream Homes." said Jack Thomasson, HGTV's professional home planner, in a statement.
Entries for the sweepstakes can be made between Dec. 30, 2011, and Feb. 18, 2012. Traditionally, the "Dream Home" is highlighted in a special on HGTV on New Year's Day.
