Sunny Solano looks great from every angle
It's not possible to look at the tile roof, stucco walls and generously windowed exterior without thinking of sunshine. High arched windows on every exterior wall of this contemporary Mediterranean style home add drama, inside and out, while capturing light from every possible angle.
In the front, stucco columns with arched openings separate the driveway from a lushly planted entry courtyard. Stately columns flank the lofty gabled entryway. Viewed from the rear, the Solano is equally attractive. The exterior of the hexagonal great room, graced by high arched multi paned windows on three sides, has a panoramic view. A patio adds to the effect, wrapping around the entire back expanse.
The spacious country kitchen is open to the vaulted great room, with only an eating bar between. Other amenities include generous counter and cupboard space, a step in pantry, built in range and oven, and an additional oven and microwave combination.
At the juncture of kitchen and great room, an open stairwell spirals up to a wide vaulted loft that is open to the great room at the rear and the entryway in front. It has a sloping ceiling with storage access on two sides. To convert this space to a cozy library retreat, simply bring in some bookshelves and a couple of easy chairs.
Bedrooms are located at opposite ends of the Solano. The sumptuous master suite features two walk in closets, spa tub, skylights, shower, private water closet and twin vanities. The other two bedrooms each have their own bathroom. Utilities are convenient to these bedrooms as well as the garage.
