Kiawah Island site of 2013 Dream Home
As if the 2012 PGA Championship is not enough to put Kiawah in the spotlight, along comes the well known cable channel HGTV to set up camp on the Island. That’s right; Kiawah will be the site of the 2013 HGTV Dream Home sweepstakes. The site of the home’s construction will be at the new development of Indigo Park which is located in a secluded eastern section of Kiawah just off Governors Drive near the River Course. I have biked past this beautiful stretch of marsh and river on numerous occasions and can easily see why Kiawah would develop a quaint neighborhood in such a picturesque setting. The Indigo Park developers are keeping the marsh environment and scenery intact as these homes are built with the marsh still as a focal point of the neighborhood. This dream home like the others within Indigo Park are built upon LEED concept guidelines, which means every facet of environmental stewardship and sustainability will factor into construction. I am excited to see how this environmentally friendly project turns out and will definitely enter this contest as many chances as I can get. Keep the pictures coming, HGTV!
