Santa Clara has plenty of style, space
Soaring rooflines and a square-columned portico create a dramatic entry in the Santa Clara, a contemporary two-story home by guest designer Tim Thompson of Springfield, Ore. A brick planter adds color, while simple bargeboards and decorative windows give the eye plenty to appreciate.
Vaulted ceilings in the living room and dining room bring a feeling of spaciousness inside. The angled foyer is a full two stories high, and brightly illuminated. Multipaned windows sweep up the left side of the door, and stack up on top. A balcony overlooks the entry, which has a plant shelf over the coat closet.
The foyer puts you smack dab in the center of everything. Straight ahead, an open balustrade rises to the second floor where all the bedrooms are located. Formal rooms are to the left, family room, utility room and a bathroom with exterior access are to the right. The kitchen is at the back, between the dining room and family room.
An arched opening marks the entrance to the family room, which has French doors that open onto a small patio covered by a wooden arbor. Wide bay windows expand and brighten a large cheerful kitchen with every modern convenience. Features include an appliance center, desk, pantry, built-in oven, range and dishwasher, and an eating bar with a sink facing into the family room.
Upstairs, the vaulted master suite has a huge walk-in closet and skylit private bathroom with twin lavatories, a garden tub, and an enclosed water closet. The other two bedrooms share a bathroom which also has a double vanity.
