Schaffer’s Mill, a 475-acre, 400-homesite gated community and home of the beautiful HGTV Dream Home 2014, donated $51,047 to the Tahoe Forest Health System Foundation from proceeds raised through HGTV Dream Home tour ticket sales.
“We’re excited and proud to donate more than $51,000 to the Tahoe Forest Health System Foundation,” said John Marlin, Managing Partner for Schaffer’s Mill. “We had more than 5,000 HGTV fans tour the Dream Home and can’t thank the Tahoe Forest Health System Foundation enough for their volunteer efforts in helping us manage Dream Home tours.”
The Schaffer’s Mill community, located just east of Truckee, was chosen by HGTV as the location for the HGTV Dream Home 2014 last spring. HGTV decorated the beautiful 3,200-plus square foot modern mountain retreat at Schaffer’s Mill. The HGTV Dream Home 2014 was revealed on HGTV on Wednesday, January 1st during a one-hour show. Fans entered to win the beautiful home on the HGTV website through the HGTV Dream Home 2014 Giveaway. The winner will be announced during the HGTV Dream Home Giveaway 2014 special on April 15, 2014, at 6 pm ET.
The HGTV Dream Home was designed by Truckee-based Ward-Young Architects and was built by Tanamera Builders. Blending traditional and contemporary forms, the home is designed with two wings: a living wing and a bedroom wing with large expanses of glass and sliding door systems to create transparent and direct connection between indoors and outdoors.
Past locations for the HGTV Dream Home include Kiawah Island, South Carolina in 2013, Park City, Utah in 2012, Stowe, Vermont in 2011 and Sandia Park, New Mexico in 2010.
The Schaffer’s Mill community features home sites from the $200’s, Mountain Lodges from the $900’s and estate homes and luxury cabins from $1.2 million. Open since 2008 and named after the “Father of Truckee,” George Schaffer, Schaffer’s Mill pays homage to Mr. Schaffer, his ideals and vision.
