For 16 years, HGTV has been giving away a brand new, custom-built dream home to a lucky viewer. This year, the network brings its design and building expertise to Kiawah Island, near Charleston, South Carolina, with a home so "green," it earns a Platinum LEED certification.

The three-story home is part of the Indigo Village green-living neighborhood, and boasts a streamlined kitchen with bamboo flooring, a master bathroom suite with a nearly two-foot deep soaking tub, an outdoor shower, and a front deck built from sustainable hardwood.

For 2013, along with the luxurious zen cottage, HGTV is throwing in $500,000 and a new car. What more could you ask for? Maybe a butler to serve you shrimp and grits in bed?
