Winner picked for HGTV’s Austin Smart Home

The wait is over … and, sorry to say, you didn’t win the gorgeous Austin home the HGTV cable network was giving away.

Unless you’re Isabel Villarreal, in which case congratulations are in order.

In addition to the home near Zilker Park, Villarreal, a Harlingen resident, got a Mercedes and $100,000. The total prize package was worth more than $1 million, HGTV said.

“I love Austin,” Villarreal says on HGTV.com. “The location of the home was very special, partly because I am from Texas and I was born not too far from the home.”

More than 40 million people entered the contest, according to HGTV.
