Sunny Mesa Verde has Southwestern look
Inspired by the sun-warmed Native American pueblos of the Southwest, the Mesa Verde exudes an air of freshness and simplicity. Its bright, stuccoed walls are softly rounded at the edges. The flat roof is rimmed by eye-catching stepped parapets, and accentuated by decorative log ends. Exposed lintels and smooth posts add additional eye appeal.
Inside, the sense of openness is totally contemporary. Light washes into the high-ceilinged great room through a wealth of windows at the back, and another on the side. If desired, a fireplace could nestle into the far corner, and a wet bar could extend along the nearby wall. Triple sliders access a covered patio that spans most of the rear.
A two-foot drop in ceiling height marks the transition from great room to kitchen and dining room. In the kitchen, a long work island fronted by a raised eating bar also provides partial visual separation. Other than these two indicators, this spacious room is entirely open.
Standing at the cook top, you can stay fully involved with family activities, and keep tabs on backyard goings-on as well. Laundry appliances are mere steps away, in a fairly large utility room that connects to the garage. A generously sized pantry adds to the storage space, and a utility sink can easily be built into the long counter.
Bedrooms and bathrooms line up along the left side of the home. Interesting angles shape the Mesa Verde's owners' suite. Sliders offer direct patio access, which will be even more appreciated if the owners install an outdoor hot tub or spa.
Bedrooms two and three share a two-section bathroom that can also be reached from the entry.
