New Mediterranean House Plan Rosabella Exudes A Sunny Ambiance0 Comments
Rounded roof tiles and stucco exterior of the Rosabella house plan can’t help but evoke the sunny climes of Spain and Italy. Gentle arches cap window and door openings, adding to the Mediterranean ambiance. Bold stucco-clad columns frame the lofty entry porch, and keystones add a classic element.
Entry doors open right into a high-ceilinged entry where light washes in through an arched transom. Moving forward brings you to the highly glassed hexagonal great room. The inside is completely present-day, and nowhere is the fact that more visible than in this extensive and expansive house.
Arched transoms crown wide banks of glass that fill most of three walls. All but the windows flanking the fireplace slide open to allow in gentle breezes, or offer use of a patio that spans the whole rear of the home. The poatio effectively enhances the living area, if the weather allows.
A angled pony wall bounds one side of the G-shaped kitchen. Entering the great room, you are able to look over it to see what’s cooking on the range. The sink hides behind a raised eating bar that rims another peninsular counter. While washing up kitchen ware, you can take in the great room plus the patio and the landscape beyond.
The vaulted owners’ suite fills the whole left-wing. Luxurious features include an interestingly shaped shower, double vanity, walk-in closet and totally private bathroom. Sliding-glass doors in the sleeping area allow direct deck access.
A large utility room, a bathroom, as well as two more rooms are in the right wing, which links with the Rosabella’s two-car garage. A deep walk-in pantry at the back of the utility room adds to the kitchen’s ample space for storage. Steps for the basement are next to the garage.
