The mother of five says she toured every space in the house online during the sweepstakes and picked her favorites: the master bedroom and master bath, the kitchen and the screened-in porch. Smith and her family will tour the home in person along with Brooks later this month.
The home features three levels that provide plenty of room to either spread out or gather for family fun. The main level features a master bedroom suite, open kitchen, dining room, living room and screened porch. Downstairs, the home includes an additional bedroom suite as well as a media room and exercise room. Completing the layout, the upper level houses a home office and two additional bedrooms.
Smith says her two daughters, who still live at home, have already picked out their rooms, but for now, she is just enjoying being the winner and sharing the excitement with her whole family. "I'm in a state of complete and total gratitude," she said. "This is the best thing that's ever happened to me, other than having my kids."
