The 2023 Springfield St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway house style is a blend between traditional and modern craftsman. Full of modern details that will surprise guests, there are so many luxe design details for dreamy design inspo. Scroll on to get inspired by this estimated 3,200-square-foot, four bedroom, three bath retreat.


St Judes Dream Home

Make your Entrance A Dramatic Focal Point

The house’s plans are titled the Magnolia House, and its stunning facade definitely shows it’s no Fixer Upper. Its first impression makes a grand one, says Brad King, homebuilder and founder/president of King Built. “The three sets of French doors make the house striking from the street but also gorgeous from the inside,” he says. “This is a unique layout for the front of a house and offers a great source of natural light, combined with the function and purpose of expanding the already open kitchen, dining and living room area to a massive front porch.”

Elevate and Expand Your Living Areas with Opulent Outdoors

Elevate your outdoor living space with curated, outdoor friendly furniture and strategic all-year landscaping choices. “A well-designed outdoor space becomes a hub for spending quality time together and creating meaningful memories,” said Kenny Minor, vice president of sales and business development for Outdoor Home, which crafted the space. “Our favorite feature is definitely the front porch. It’s very inviting with all three French doors front facing. A comfy porch swing extends the entertainment space from the inside out, which we love.”

Outdoor Home will be providing special tickets on sale, a $10,000 Backyard Shopping Spree Package for one person who purchases a ticket to the St. Jude Dream Home by April 7th.

Pamper Yourself in a Luxurious Primary Suite

The heart of the home may be the kitchen, but we’re obsessed with the Dream Home’s primary suite. Located on the back side of the house, this large bedroom includes a door to the back patio, two walk-in closets and a sprawling bathroom with a swoon-worthy soaker tub, all designed by Abby Luebbert, owner/principal designer of Heirloom Design Company. “The primary suite is designed as an oasis,” she says. “Plus, it’s the only bedroom on the main floor, making it a true sanctuary even within the home.”

Elevate Your Home Office

Work from home in style. Create an oasis for email, video conferences and everything in between. Fresh plants, sunshine-soaked sheer window dressings and limiting the color palette all help a home office feel refined and relaxed. Plus, this dream home’s office is located just off the mud room, separated from living spaces. “Even though people work from home, a little work/life separation is nice to have. The whole house is designed to provide unique experiences in each location throughout the home, and the office is no exception. It’s a space designed with purpose.”

For one lucky ticket holder who reserves their ticket by April 21, the winner of the drawing will drive off in style. Frank Leta Acura of Springfield will be giving away a 2023 Acura Integra, a gorgeous, traditional sedan with modern touches throughout – just like the Magnolia Dream Home.

“At Frank Leta Acura of Springfield, we believe in supporting the people and community that support us by generously giving back in meaningful ways,” said Lucas Hart, Managing Partner. “We know that cancer affects so many people, including members of our organization and their friends and family. Donating a car in support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital allows us to not only gift a winner in our community a brand new luxury vehicle, but help raise money for an organization that will impact so many more lives.”
