Sunny vaulted hexagonal core in Sonora
The Florida-style Sonora is designed for full appreciation of the outdoors. Inside, wide expanses of glass offer panoramic views from the kitchen, living room, dining room, and great room, while outside, a wide deck wraps across the entire rear expanse.
Probably the most notable feature is its overall shape. A sunny vaulted hexagonal space forms the core, with wings on two sides that extend toward the front like two welcoming arms. Instead of hands, each of those arms culminates in a two-car garage, one of which has three skylights. Half or all of this bright space could be used for a shop.
To enter, you pass through a wide courtyard before stepping between the sets of twin posts that highlight the entry. Sidelights, a transom, and skylights brighten the vaulted entry, and twin coat closets nestle into alcoves on both sides of the door.
Passing straight ahead brings you to the vaulted hexagonal space, where a living room with a fireplace is on the right, great room is at center, and dining room and kitchen are on the left. A long peninsular counter offers partial separation between the kitchen and the rest of the space.
The Sonora's kitchen offers an abundance of counter and cupboard space, including a roomy walk-in pantry. Basement stairs are right around the corner, along with a den that could be used as a home office or third bedroom. It's next to bedroom two and a full bathroom.
The deluxe owners' suite fills the other wing, along with a large utility room. Owners' suite amenities include two large walk-in closets and a private bathroom with spa tub, oversize shower, and twin lavs.
