This eclectic architectural home is styled similar to a Craftsman influenced, Mediterranean home as would be seen in the early 20th Century California. The play of textures is evident from the exterior where slurried stone is contrasted by dry-stack stone and stucco, and craftsman inspired, cedar open rafter tails, cedar decked soffit and beams add textural warmth. The interior finishes continue the textural play by contrasting the slurried and dry-stack stone with stained concrete floors, granite, wood and subtly plastered walls and arches.
The courtyard invites you into the home with the sound of a bubbling water feature and colorful landscaping. As you enter the home you realize that this home is designed for a family who loves to entertain, because there are large open areas that flow from space to space for many people to enjoy. The home extends to the exterior pool and hot tub area in back for entertaining, but the home also allows for privacy by separating the more intimate spaces.
The homes Kitchen is large enough for large gatherings yet functional for everyday family needs. The exterior texture and design is reflected in the stone arched cooking area. The island is large enough to have a vegetable sink, warming drawer and cabinets with pull outs on both sides for extra functionality. The Mud/Mail Room between the Garage and more public spaces helps keep the familys everyday clutter out of the rest of the home as well.
The Master Bedroom is vaulted with a beamed cathedral ceiling and this wing includes a Guest Bedroom which could also function as an Office or Nursery. The Master Bath is spacious, including His and Hers walk-in closets as well as a two person shower and corner tub.
The upstairs has two Bedrooms and Baths with a Game room or optional 5th Bedroom, Balcony overlooking the Great Room and Reading Tower. Also available is a Bonus Space over the Garage which could be converted into a Theater Room. Bedroom 2 has a private Bath and also has a romantic Juliet Balcony.
