Many associations have started using the Southwestern styles in their groupings of homes. This style of home lends itself to earth tones and shades that blend and match. The tile roofs now come in a greater number of colors, all adding character and quality to the look of the homes. Such a design is the San Carlos (D6806). It has two gabled areas, one over a window and one as the front entrance. The pillars match each other and add symmetry to the home.
The San Carlos has 2,647 square feet, with the center of the home being an open great room. The three-car garage has a side entrance. The many angles to this home provide a unique look that invites one to explore inside.
Through the entry finds the great room in front, a formal dining room to the right, and a den to the left. The den has 10-foot ceilings, book shelves hidden back in the corner, and lovely French doors. The dining room has coffered 10-foot ceilings and large windows. This room is separated from the kitchen and can be used a formal dining area when friends are being entertained.
The great room has tall 11-foot ceilings, a fireplace on the left side and a huge kitchen/nook on the right. Through the back is a screened porch with cathedral ceilings.
The elongated nook and kitchen is open and provides an abundance of counter space and cabinets. There is a corner pantry, along with a center island that is divided with an eating bar on one side and a sink and dishwasher on the other. The nook, lined with windows, is bathed with light for early risers.
Two bedrooms are found on the left side of the home with a shared bath containing dual sinks and a tub. The linen closet is located in the hall, accessible to both rooms.
The master suite is on the opposite side of the home, nestled down the entire side. The master bath is large with an enormous walk-in closet at the end. It has an oversized shower, corner spa tub, dual sinks and a linen closet. A half-bath and the utility room are located just outside the suite.
