Re­mem­ber the 2018 HGTV Dream Home over­look­ing Hen­der­son Bay in Gig Har­bor?

It’s back on the mar­ket. Chase Jones and hus­band Shawn Selby bought the house at 11628 70th Ave. NW along with its fur­ni­ture and decor in June after the per­son who won the house in a na­tional con­test opted for the cash prize.

Now, Jones and Selby are re­lo­cat­ing for Jones’ work.

The 3,591-square-foot house, along with fur­nish­ings and decor as seen on TV, is listed at just un­der $1.9 mil­lion. It has four be­d­rooms, three and a half baths and 90 feet of water­front with bulk­head. It was built in 1974 and re­ceived its makeover for the HGTV an­nual project and sweep­stakes.

The net­work’s 2019 dream home is in White­fish, Mon­tana, with that com­pe­ti­tion also un­der­way.

Jones and Selby told The News Tri­bune via email they’d moved to the area last spring from British Columbia and were at­tracted to Gig Har­bor for ac­cess to golf­ing and bik­ing trails. When they orig­i­nally checked out the home, they didn’t know about its HGTV sig­nif­i­cance.

“All we knew was that it was sleek and mod­ern, that the de­sign made sense and that it was fin­ished out to look like it was brand new, and that the open liv­ing style was some­thing that we had been look­ing for in other homes but that we just weren’t see­ing,” the cou­ple wrote in re­sponse to ques­tions.

They noted they’d buy an­other HGTV home “as long as it was also our dream home.”

Ac­cord­ing to their email: “Chase’s busi­ness is based in Texas, and al­though he has been able to run it re­motely by fre­quent flights and daily telecom­mut­ing, 2018 saw growth lev­els that re­quire us to re­lo­cate to Hous­ton.”

The cou­ple said what they’ll miss most about the house is the sun­sets.

“There aren’t many places where you can get to watch the ea­gles fly­ing and the seals swim­ming in the ocean while the sun sets with moun­tains in the back­ground,” they wrote in their re­sponse. “It is re­ally in­cred­i­ble, and ev­ery day since we took pos­ses­sion, we find our­selves rac­ing home to catch the sun­set.”

Emily Mu­niz of sub­ur­ban Nashville orig­i­nally won the ren­o­vated home in April 2018, cho­sen from 123 mil­lion con­test en­trants. More in­for­ma­tion on the house as listed now is at http://www.dreamhome 2018. com/. Deb­bie Cock­rell: 253-597- 8364, @Deb­bie_Cock­rell
