Pittsboro, NC – HGTV announced on Friday that the winner of the HGTV Urban Oasis® 2022 is Regina Richardson of Pittsboro, NC. The prize package is valued at over $1.3 million and includes the newly built and furnished home, a new Mercedes-Benz C-Class and $50,000 from Ally. The home was designed by Tennessee architect Turner Binkley, constructed by the Mitchell Builders Group with interior design by Brian Patrick Flynn.
Richardson was randomly drawn from over 77 million entries to the sweepstakes, which lasted from October 4, 2022 to November 23, 2022 and garnered the highest number of content views in HGTV Urban Oasis history. Richardson has entered all the HGTV Home Giveaways for the past 17 years. In fact, every time a new house would become available, she would sign up for daily reminders to enter the giveaway. Richardson was most impressed with the layout of the home, especially the outdoor and indoor entertaining areas. She regularly loves to host which made this a standout space in the home for her.
“When the camera crew came over in front of us, I thought that my daughter had set up a video for me, then I looked to my right and Brian was standing there. When I saw his face, I just knew, and I think I said, ‘I won it!'” said Richardson when asked about winning the sweepstakes. “Unreal…a dream that came true for me and my family.”
Richardson is a retiree who lives in Pittsboro, North Carolina with her husband and high school sweetheart of 42 years. Her daughter, and her daughter’s family, were all there for the big surprise. Richardson described it as a perfect moment experiencing it with her tight-knit family. Richardson is a huge fan of HGTV and always has it on. Some of her favorite shows include Married to Real Estate, Help! I Wrecked My House and 100 Day Dream Home, among others.
