Colonial Villa in Las Ventanas$309,000 USD FOR SALE
Something about the simplicity of repeating patterns has always captured my eye. Not surprisingly, it was the first detail I noticed about this home. The square cut outs in the upper walls are a unifying motif that is repeated in the small square windows cleverly placed throughout the house, as well as in the square panes of the various windows and French doors. Paired with a minimum number of high end finishes that appear throughout the house, the overall effect is one of class and style.
As you enter this home, you’ll notice that the faux finish paint provides a rich, warm depth to all the rooms. The living room is particularly inviting, as the vaulted ceiling allows for two levels of windows that bring in much welcomed sunshine. Shallow rectangular nichos, a contemporary take on the traditional arched nicho, create the perfect spot to highlight a special piece of art or flower arrangement.
The adjoining dining room looks out into the patio through a multi-paned, sliding glass door, which, when open, creates a breezy flow to the backyard garden patio that includes mature plants and a relaxing ambiance. Facing the dining room is the kitchen. The granite countertops, silver appliances and black cabinets give it a sleek, contemporary feeling, while the natural wood accents maintain its warmth.
The ground floor bedroom maintains this clean classic look with crown molding, floor to ceiling closets of fine cabinetry, plantation shutters and its own nicho framed by two windows. The bathroom boasts travertine tile, a raised sink bowl and specialty trim tile in the shower.
The upstairs landing is generous and looks down over the living room. Off this landing is the master bedroom, a serene spot with tejamanil ceiling treatment, muli-paned sliding French door and a small private terrace with views to the surrounding countryside. The en suite bathroom features the same elegant travertine tile and raised sink bowls.
The second upstairs bedroom, with its own tejamanil ceiling treatment, is currently purposed as an office and its bathroom is finished in the same style.
In addition to all of these wonderful indoor spaces, the rooftop garden provides yet another area for gracious living. The wood beamed arbor with cantera column accents creates a shady seating area, and the kitchen, complete with wood burning fireplace, grill, mini-fridge and sink, makes entertaining easy. Whether you’re just lounging or enjoying a meal, you’ll appreciate the expansive views of the hills and the mature greenery nearby.
Other details worth mentioning include the security that living in the gated community of La Ventana affords, Diamond Membership to Nick Faldo golf course, access to the club house, a shaded carport and a turn key package for an extra $15,000 USD.
