High-tech touches weren’t the only thing decked out in the HGTV Smart Home last year.

The 3,000-square-foot house with three bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms also featured a state-of-the-art kitchen, wet bar, wrap-around porch, pool, pergola and more. And the modern cottage – built by Charter Building Group – showcased looks by interior designer and HGTV host Tiffany Brooks.

The national channel picked Wilmington, or more specifically Castle Hayne’s River Bluffs neighborhood, last year as the site of its annual sweepstakes. (This year’s house is in Santa Fe, New Mexico.) A teacher from Columbia, South Carolina, won the giveaway, which also included a Mercedes-Benz and $100,000.

The house later went on the market and sold in October.
