Fratta also won a $100,000 check and a Mercedez-Benz E Class Sedan.

The win seemed to be a family effort, as Fratta was encouraged to enter the contest by her middle daughter, HGTV said on its website.

Fratta’s oldest daughter is already living on Florida’s East Coast, so they thought nabbing the home would be a good way to bring the family together.

Action News Jax first told you about the home in November just before the contest went live in December.

We also told you in February that the home was still awaiting final approval from city leaders.

It was still an issue in March, when the city brought up concerns about the home’s pool and pool deck. In April, the home was finally approved.

HGTV previously said if the winner of the Dream Home didn’t want it, there’s a $650,000 cash option, instead.
