This year’s HGTV Urban Oasis will give away not only a beautiful home in scenic Asheville, North Carolina, but also $50,000 cash and a 2016 Acura TLX. HGTV has been giving away city apartments in its annual Urban Oasis contest since 2010, but 2015 marks the first year that a small city and house will be featured.
HGTV has chosen the ideal site for a home-renovation project. Asheville, the largest city in Western North Carolina and one of the 15 largest cities in the state, experienced a population boom in the 1930s, and many of its most historic and picturesque homes were built almost a century ago.
HGTV’s renovation has taken a 1920s bungalow into the 20th century in style. The over-1,300 square foot home has been opened up substantially from its original floor plan, and the house is full of naturally-lit, brightly colored spaces and furnishings combed in part from local artists and antique shops.
Yet as gorgeous a job as designer Brian Patrick Flynn has done renovating the property, nothing got us as excited as what was parked in the garage. The 2016 Acura TLX looks right at home alongside classic architecture with modern styling, and $50,000 in prize money should go a long way with the new TLX’s impressive fuel efficiency.
Asheville has more in common than our very own Ashland, Oregon than the first syllable of its name. Both towns are frequently featured on lists of America’s best small cities, and both are home to thriving art scenes.
If a beautiful house, $50,000 cash, and a premium luxury vehicle sound like your cup of tea, you can enter to win HGTV’s Urban Oasis 2015 twice a day from now until September 24th, 2015. Even if you would never consider leaving Southern Oregon, a free TLX is hard to beat!
