Intracoastal Realty Listing Selected as Finalist in HGTV Ultimate House Hunt 2019

A listing represented by Lynne Galloway with The Mitchell-Lewis Group of Intracoastal Realty has been selected as a finalist in the HGTV Ultimate House Hunt 2019. The Ultimate House Hunt is a month-long online promotion held each year on HGTV.com, featuring extraordinary homes for sale in eight categories: Amazing Kitchens, Big City Digs, Countryside Retreats, Curb Appeal, Homes with a History, Modern Masterpieces, Outdoor Escapes and Waterfront Homes.

All featured homes are represented by members of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® and Luxury Portfolio International®. This is the eighth consecutive year HGTV has aligned exclusively with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® and Luxury Portfolio International® for the popular awards, which run from June 12 through July 17. Last year’s promotion was the most popular in the award’s history.

The Intracoastal Realty listing was selected by HGTV’s editors as a finalist in the Waterfront Homes category.

The home is located on Banks Channel in Wrightsville Beach.  From the eco-friendly features like on-demand hot water heater and solar panels to the A-series windows and doors, Mukulungu tropical hardwood decking, multiple storage areas, and open living area of the exterior to the refined finishes of the interior featuring Wolfe and Miele appliances, Hansgrohe plumbing fixtures, Haiku fans, tongue-and-groove poplar walls w/vaulted poplar ceilings, and custom walk-in closets, this home checks every imaginable design or function box.

“As an affiliate of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, Intracoastal Realty is often presented with incredible marketing opportunites,” said Lake Slacum, Intracoastal Realty’s Vice President of Marketing.  “We are excited for the sellers of this wonderful property, and for the national exposure that the listing – and our region – will receive as a result of this promotion.”

Consumers have the opportunity to tour the 92 homes selected as finalists by viewing photo galleries on HGTV.com and can then cast a vote for their favorite properties. A winner will be chosen in each category based on the highest number of votes received, and an overall favorite will be awarded for the listing receiving the most votes.

The winning homes will receive editorial exposure on HGTV.com, as well as the prestige of being selected as fan favorites. Additional properties will be featured in the Global Homes gallery, boasting homes from ten different countries or territories around the world.

Blueberry Tart

Ingredients

1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cold butter
1 tablespoon vinegar
Filling:
4 cups fresh blueberries, divided
2/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Directions

In a small bowl, combine flour, sugar, and salt; cut in butter until crumbly. Add vinegar, tossing with a fork to moisten. Press onto bottom and up the sides of a lightly greased 9-in. a tart pan with removable bottom.
For the filling, lightly smash 2 cups of blueberries in a bowl. Combine the sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg; stir into blueberries. Spread mixture evenly into crust; sprinkle with 1 cup blueberries. Place tart pan on a baking sheet.

Strawberry Potstickers

Ingredients:

3 ounces milk chocolate chips
1/4 cup half-and-half cream
1 teaspoon butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
POT STICKERS:
2 cups chopped fresh strawberries
3 ounces milk chocolate chips
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
32 eggroll (also known as wonton, spring roll or gyoza) wrappers
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
1/2 cup water, divided

Directions:

Place chocolate in a small bowl. In a small saucepan, bring cream and butter just to a boil. Pour over chocolate; whisk until smooth. Stir in vanilla and cinnamon. Cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally.
For pot stickers, in a small bowl, toss strawberries and chocolate chips with brown sugar and cinnamon. Place 1 tablespoon mixture in center of one wonton wrapper. (Cover remaining wrappers with a damp paper towel until ready to use.)
Moisten wrapper edge with egg. Fold the wrapper over filling; seal edges, pleating the front side several times to form a pleated pouch. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling. Stand pot stickers on a work surface to flatten bottoms; curve slightly to form crescent shapes, if desired.
In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Arrange half of the pot stickers, flat side down, in concentric circles in pan; cook 1-2 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown. Add 1/4 cup water; bring to a simmer. Cook, covered, 3-5 minutes or until water is almost absorbed and wrappers are tender.
Cook, uncovered, 1 minute or until bottoms are crisp and water is completely evaporated. Repeat with remaining pot stickers. Serve with chocolate sauce and whipping cream.
