The HGTV Dream Home 2014, located at Shaffer’s Mill in Truckee, Calif. is said to be a true exemplification of New Mountain architecture.

New Mountain architecture is a home style hybrid where traditional meets contemporary. Exterior finishes include cedar siding and rustic stonework, while large windows, exposed structural beams and minimalist landscaping provide a modern design composition. The expanse of glass windows and sliding-door systems create a connection between indoors and outdoors.

The 3,200-square-foot floor plan includes a living wing and bedroom wing that are separated by an outdoor living space. Two additional bedrooms and a family room/media center are found upstairs.

Schaffer’s Mill is a planned community with exceptional amenities including golf, community pool and hot-springs bathing area, and a shuttle service that taxis residents to and from local world-class ski resorts and to a private, resident’s-only lakefront clubhouse and 48-foot yacht on Lake Tahoe.

The HGTV Dream Home 2014 comes complete with an all-new 2015 GMC Yukon Denali and a $250,000 cash prize provided by Quicken Loans.
