Stucco covers most of the exterior, so this home is sure to put viewers in mind of sunny climes. Formal rooms are on both sides of a foyer that channels people directly into a large, richly windowed living room. The kitchen and nook are both open to this space, while the dining area is linked but separate.

Mendocino looking cool under sunny skies
Looking at the Mendocino puts the viewer in mind of sunny climes, like the Mediterranean, Florida, California, or the Southwest.
Cool-looking stucco covers most of the exterior, and bold stuccoed columns highlight a trio of lofty arches that frame the front door and windows. The porch ceiling soars to 12 feet. Immediately inside the door, ceilings in the dining room, foyer and parlor are equally high.
Formal rooms are on both sides of the foyer that channels people directly into a large, richly windowed living room at the rear. An arched opening on the left leads into a dining room. The parlor, on the right, is in an ideal location for alternate use as a home office.
Both the kitchen and nook are open to the spacious living room, where windows, high and wide, fill most of the rear wall. This will be most appreciated if the home is built on a lot with a view.
Standing at the kitchen sink, you can enjoy that view. Or you can look out across the raised eating bar into the large living area in front of you, check out activities on the patio, or watch flames dancing in the gas fireplace across the room. Other kitchen features include: a walk-in pantry, work island with prep sink, built-in appliances, and plenty of counter space. A door in the nook leads out onto a partially covered patio, perfect for outdoor dining.
Wide windows in the owners' suite also take advantage of the rear view. Other notable features include: a deep walk-in closet, dual vanity, spa tub, walk-in shower, and private toilet. Two more bedrooms and a bathroom fill the opposite side of the Mendocino.
