The Santa Barbara, CA, Local is the Recipient of the Grand Prize Package Valued at Over $1.5 Million
NEW YORK, July 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- HGTV, a member of Discovery, Inc. family of brands, announced the winner of the HGTV® Smart Home 2020 in Pittsburgh, PA, is Jyll Doubleday of Santa Barbara, CA. Doubleday is the recipient of the prize package valued at over $1.5 million, which includes the brand new, fully furnished and technologically advanced home, the first-ever 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB and $100,000 from LendingTree. The home was constructed by local builder Infinity Custom Homes and designed by interior designer Tiffany Brooks.
Doubleday was randomly selected from over 103 million entries to the HGTV Smart Home Sweepstakes, which lasted from April 22, 2020 through June 12, 2020. Doubleday entered twice a day on HGTV.com and DIY.com, a routine she has been in for all three HGTV Home Giveaways, including HGTV Dream Home and HGTV Urban Oasis, since she first learned about them.
"I was just dumbfounded! It's still really hard for me to wrap my head around it," said Doubleday. She expressed her motivation to continue to enter, despite her husband's skepticism about the chances of winning. "Somebody has to win, and it might as well be me!"
Doubleday lives with her husband, teenage son and daughter, and goldendoodle in Santa Barbara, CA. Her family loves the smart aspects of the home, but Doubleday is focused on the beauty of it. She is particularly fond of the stonework of the home, as well as the artwork and the communal spaces. She admires the love and attention that went into the craftsmanship.
