Renovated by Louisville, Kentucky-based Twin Spires Remodeling with interiors by Brian Patrick Flynn, the HGTV Urban Oasis 2023 boasts four bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms across approximately 2,259 square feet.
"This year's home is a cozy bungalow that melds the natural Kentucky landscape with modern, city living, providing the best of both worlds to the winner," says Flynn. "Louisville is a big, small town, and the HGTV Urban Oasis captures the energy of the city through its nods to local culture and colorful, comfortable spaces that act as a relaxing escape from the hustle and bustle of the city."
From horseshoe wallpaper in the guest bath to bourbon-inspired artwork in the living room, touches of Louisville dot the home’s finishes. The open-concept first floor offers a living room with mustard custom-made cabinetry, a dining room, and a kitchen with dark blue cabinetry and brass accents.
A convenient powder room is hidden by a secret door, while the backyard patio is accessed from the kitchen. In the backyard, a porch, dining area, and a large lawn space are ideal for the gathering of family and friends.
Inspired by the green rolling hills of Kentucky, the primary suite includes two walk-in closets and a large main bathroom with dual vanities. Upstairs, a multifunctional loft space is centered among two guest bedrooms, a guest bathroom, a multipurpose room, and a second-floor outdoor patio.
The fully furnished home is situated among Louisville’s bustling downtown with year-round entertainment from festivals to the Kentucky Derby. The winner of the sweepstakes will also receive a 2023 Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV and $50,000 from Viva along with a five-year supply of paper towels, a prize package valued at over $850,000.
"The HGTV Urban Oasis provides a balanced lifestyle for the modern homeowner, offering the culture of an exciting city like Louisville as well as the comfort we look to find in a home," says Loren Ruch, head of content, HGTV. "This HGTV Home Giveaway shines a spotlight on another great American city while also showing millions of fans across the country unique design inspirations and ideas."
