Happy Holidays from Associated Designs!
The Carrizo's Mediterranean style red-tiled roof and white stucco exterior brings forward images of sun and warmth to mind on even the coldest of winter days.
Corner window bays, accented by elevated columns, add an extra dash of spice to the home's Moroccan flavor. Identical columns in the Carrizo's interior support elegant arches that mark the entrances to the living room, family room and eating nook.
Arched, multi-paned windows in the entryway, study and living room add graceful lines to the exterior, while creating drama when viewed from within. The effect is most striking in the living room, which boasts a lofty 11-foot ceiling, a see-through fireplace, and arched entryways on two sides. (Nine foot ceilings throughout the rest of the Carrizo are a foot higher than the norm.)
The eating nook is on the other side of the fireplace. This combination of hearth, eating nook and kitchen serves as a magnet for family life, drawing everyone together at the beginning and end of each day. The range top is built into an angled counter extension, allowing cooks to converse with people in the nook as they work.
Amenities in the sumptuous master suite include a walk-in closet, spa, and twin vanities. The guest bathroom has a separately-enclosed water closet, allowing two people to use the bathroom at once.
The Carrizo is a single-level home, an attractive feature for individuals with impaired mobility.
