Grand Prize Winner: Brian and Traci Martin, Clovis, CA - St. Jude Dream Home, valued at $425,000 in the De Young CountrySide Community in Clovis
The 2014 Central Valley St. Jude Dream Home, built by major donor De Young Properties, was given away to Brian and Traci Martin of Clovis who were selected as the lucky winner of the 3,100 sq. ft. home on an expansive 10,485 sq. ft. homesite in the De Young CountrySide community in Clovis during the November 9th live television broadcast on KMPH FOX 26.
This year’s event successfully raised $1,075,100 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Since 2007, De Young Properties has been a major donor and builder of eight St. Jude Dream Homes, helping to raise $7,608,345 to help the kids of St. Jude fight cancer and other catastrophic childhood diseases. One hundred percent of the proceeds were donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, which works around the clock to develop cures to save the lives of boys and girls, including children in the San Joaquin Valley.
De Young Properties combines their contribution and efforts with the generous help of our trade partners who donate their time, labor and resources to build this De Young EnergySmart home with the goal of raising money for this important cause. Special thanks to our largest donors, 84 Lumber, G&G Construction, Tri-Valley Plastering, Inc., Ferguson Enterprises of Fresno, General Electric, MV Style Electric, SolarCity, Kitchen Kraft and Cabinet Connection.
“It’s beautiful, it is above a dream home! We saw it for the first time tonight and everything is absolutely gorgeous, from the kitchen to the master bathroom, all the landscaping outside. De Young Properties does an A+ job, no doubt about it,” said Brian Martin, winner of the 2014 Central Valley St. Jude Dream Home. His wife Traci added, “what a wonderful job De Young Properties did.”
De Young Properties is deeply rooted in the San Joaquin Valley and gives their time and resources to the community whenever possible. “Our De Young team believes in our responsibility to help others and we feel privileged to be able to help such an important cause,” said Ashley De Young of De Young Properties. “I am inspired each year when our community comes together to show their support for St. Jude. We are appreciative of everyone who contributed their hard-earned dollars to purchase a ticket.”
This year we experienced a tremendous amount of interest in the St. Jude Dream HomeÒ because it offered five bedrooms, three bathrooms and a formal dining room. The winner’s dreams will come true with the home’s long list of special features, including a beautiful Italianate elevation with stone accents, a floor-to-ceiling tile fireplace, Granite Mountain durable quartz counters, stainless steel General Electric appliances with gas cook top and refrigerator. In addition, the home offers eco-friendly and elegant dual Brizo SmartTouch premium faucets, an Energy Star-rated Rinnai tankless water heater, premium-grade hardwood and 18” tile floors by Shaw Floors, spacious 11’ ceilings and 8’ doors, professional front and back yard landscaping, Energy Star approved Eagle Cool Roof tiles, a SolarCity 3kW Solar Power System with a 20-year pre-paid lease and beautiful wall mural by professional artist Sandee Cohrs.
As with all De Young EnergySmart homes, the 2014 St. Jude Dream Home will come with a host of earth-friendly features and apply green building practices that create a healthy environment in which we live. These building practices include high energy efficiency standards, improved indoor air quality, water conservation and utilizing sustainable building practices.
