Magnificent Stone Home with Gated Courtyard

Resources / Other Articles / Magnificent Stone Home with Gated Courtyard

On the exterior of this gorgeous home, native slurried stone, dry-stack stone, and traditional stucco lend their enduring beauty and are warmed by red cedar on the soffits and porch ceilings. A gated courtyard ushers guests inside. Sunlight streams through the large, arch-topped windows into the great room, highlighting an impressive stone fireplace. The kitchen features more stone on the arched cooking area. A thoughtful island functions as well as it entertains, with room for guests to sit and socialize with the chef. In the private master wing, the spacious bathroom with a two-person shower and corner tub combine with the His and Hers walk-in closets and a cathedral ceiling in the bedroom to form a thoroughly relaxing space. This wing also houses a guest bedroom, which could easily serve as an office or nursery. Upstairs lie two bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as a game room that could be converted to a fifth bedroom. Bedroom two features a romantic Juliet balcony overlooking the courtyard, while the game room has an interior balcony overlooking the great room and reading tower. A bonus room over the garage could be finished for a variety of uses.

Stone pillars flanking the courtyard entrance and exposed rafters above attest to the home’s Craftsman influence, while the balcony hints at Mediterranean romance.

In the great room, the motif of arches appears in the transoms over the doors and in stone niches that house built-in cabinets.
