As a proud sponsor of the HGTV® Dream Home 2019, Belgard is excited to offer you this virtual tour of the spectacular views and inviting outdoor living spaces of this fabulous mountainside retreat. Located in the picturesque outdoor paradise of Whitefish, Montana, the 2019 HGTV Dream Home was designed to take advantage of the dramatic mountainside views. With an abundance of picture windows and stack-back folding glass walls, this modern mountain lodge offers contemporary indoor-outdoor flow that allows the breathtaking outdoor living areas to be a seamless continuation of the indoor environment.

The outdoor living room and patio were positioned at an offset angle so as to not interrupt the panoramic skyline of Glacier National Park. The design is anchored by a Bordeaux™ Series Outdoor Fireplace with matching wood boxes. The stacked-stone look of the Bordeaux pieces blends well with the natural environment, adding a rustic elegance to the design. Avalon Slate pavers are laid in a contemporary ashlar pattern to add a modern touch, and feature a slate-like texture and color blend that mimics tones found in the surrounding mountainscape. Wicker sofas, additional bench seating and rustic accessories enhance the eclectic look.

The outdoor living room patio steps down to the dining area to create two distinct outdoor rooms. A Bordeaux™ Series Grill Island coordinates with the stacked-stone look of the adjacent outdoor fireplace. The grill island is positioned to allow the outdoor chef to take in the lovely view of Whitefish Lake during meal prep. The ample patio allows for additional gathering space for entertaining larger groups. Rustic wooden dining furniture lends a classic touch to the space.

The chiseled-stone look of Tandem® Modular Grid coordinates with the tones and textures of the paver field, providing the framework for post columns and a built-in bench seat at the foot of the dining area. The seat wall and columns not only add a sophisticated touch to the porch, but provide permanent seating. Throw pillows soften the look, add a touch of comfort and help tie the design together.

Indoor-Outdoor Flow

Every first floor room facing the back of the home features folding glass doors that act as picture windows during the winter months and open to create seamless indoor-outdoor living during the milder months. The kitchen window also features bar seating for indoor-outdoor entertaining. The porch is divided into distinct conversation zones, including a Scandanavian-style hot tub and a cozy private sitting area off of the master bedroom.

 Striking Entryway

In addition to the backyard, Belgard also provided Noon Porcelain Pavers for the HGTV 2019 dream home’s dramatic entryway. The eclectic design of the entry sets the architectural tone for home’s contemporary/rustic design theme. Stone veneer provides a classic mountain look, but with contemporary color blends. The front door, beams and light fixture offer classic touches that are offset by the landing’s contemporary paver design. Planters add pops of color and a finishing touch to the eclectic look.

  1. The dream home 2019 is absolutely beautiful, with breath taking views on the master bedroom and stairway up to guest room!! I love it that it’s in Colorado, where I have always wanted to live!!

    • We think it’s breathtaking, too! But the home is actually in Montana. Both states are amazingly beautiful.

    • I meant to say that I have always wanted to live in Montana– not Colorado!! I totally enjoyed the tour of the construction of this awesome house and the wonderful views!! Was so impressed on how the massive beams were put into place!! My husband and I would love to have the opportunity to live in this beautiful home!!

  2. This is a gorgeous home and I’ll be researching your products for a remodel we’re planning. I have a question tho. In the section where the kitchen is open via the windows folded back (to pass food thru)…how do you keep insects and/or birds from flying in?

    • When the folding doors are completely open, there would be no protection against insects or birds. That’s why this type of indoor/outdoor living scenario would only work in certain regions. This blogger lives in Louisiana, where we have a lot of flying insects. We also have a lot of humidity, which would be another issue. So, this design is definitely not ideal here and may not work in your neck of the woods, either.

  3. Beautiful house location amazing and a chance to win an awesome new Honda now the only thing missing is an Apple Pie. This ones for me. Retired ready to relocate.

    Must I say more.

    If I don’t win can you send me lots or Belgard to use in my back yard? I know but unless you ask you never know. Right

    Good Luck 🍀 everyone 🇺🇸

    • I didn’t have that data in any of my project information, but submitted the question to our contact and can let you know what I find out.

  4. My heart, my heart. I would love to win the absolutely beautiful home. I was an RN for 47 years and would love to relax and take in all that fresh mountain air.
