project description

This Greek Revival inspired home was designed with the focus of everyday living functionality plus outdoor family activities and entertainment. The home's exterior consists primarily of stucco and features a front portico with balcony and balustrade covering the brick herringbone paver porch. Arched dormers project from the pitched front roof to accentuate the splendor and feel of Greek Revival style architecture.

Upon entering, guests are greeted with a spacious entryway leading to the bright living area and surrounded by views of the formal dining room to the left and a reading room behind a wainscot wall with nested peninsula fireplace to the right. As you pass the main staircase, the home opens with inviting natural southern light. The open living room, breakfast, kitchen, and hearth room allows for good plan circulation and ease of entertaining large groups. The southern orientation of public living spaces within the home and outdoor living areas enables full advantage of natural light and site views.

Connected by an arched porte cochere, the estate's northeast wing serves as a guest casita and features a generous bedroom with attached full bath, private kitchenette and living room with vaulted ceilings and north facing bay windows. An auto court drive is situated directly behind the northeast wing and provides access to the attached, carriage style three-car garage. The auto court also features a covered corner porch family entry with optional access to various areas of the home. One rout leads through a mudroom hallway with built-in storage lockers, powder room and a rear outdoor kitchen lounge area, while another rout leads to the hearth room and kitchen.

A covered veranda was nested on the back side of the home, running parallel with pool deck and overlooking the natural landscape views to the south.
