Santa Rosa embodies Southwestern spirit
A bright tile roof caps the smooth stucco of the Southwestern-style Santa Rosa. Designed for construction on a slope, this home has three levels. Gathering spaces are on the main floor, and bedrooms are above. A roomy two-car garage and two large storage areas are below, and some of those spaces are windowed.
An inviting arched opening leads from the garage on the right to the handsome railed staircase that climbs gently to the main floor. A wider arch, opening onto the entry porch, frames the front door, along with a windowed bench to the door's left. Inside, art niches on both sides of the door flank the short passageway into the foyer.
After entering, you have three choices. To the right is a den or home office. Straight ahead, an arch marks the passageway that leads to a spacious dining room, windowed on three sides. That hallway also runs past a large utility room, which, in turn, accesses a covered patio with skylights. Sliding glass doors in the dining room open to the patio as well.
To the left of the foyer is an arched opening that leads into a foyer extension outfitted with a coat closet and a bench for shoe removal. The next arch opens into the welcoming living room, which has a corner fireplace and recessed home entertainment center. This space is open to the gourmet kitchen, and also offers access to a side deck.
Upstairs, owners' suite amenities include a railed balcony, a large walk-in closet and a bathroom with a shower, spa tub, dual vanity and private toilet. Each of the Santa Rosa's other two bedrooms has direct access to a private basin, then on to a shared toilet and shower.
