This house is not one of my favorites. It’s really too big. It’s 3579 sf, has 5 BR’s, a 2 Car garage, and 5 bathrooms. That’s 5 bathrooms to clean. It is a monster. It seems a bit outdated and they are still using the earthy neutral tones but with no surprises to mix it up. They also have the bane of my existence – granite.
The kitchen is huge. Like, enormous. On the surface that seems awesome, but the decorator used a small rectangle table in the breakfast area, when clearly she should have used a round one. Also, the island is too big. And it’s perfectly square. I don’t cook, but it seems to me that you’d have trouble getting something in and out of the oven. And the same is true for the refrigerator. The whole family has to walk all the way through the kitchen for breakfast. Seems picky, but this is a big kitchen. Poorly designed. Did I mention the horrible granite? And the backsplash that aggressively competes with granite? Just no.
They also chose to use brushed chrome lighting with white tulip globes that seem quite modern and they don’t match the heavier, Mediterranean architecture and decor. Not only are the fixtures unattractive, but they look cheap, especially in a house they are clearly trying to make “grand”. The whole house feels heavy and very Kirklands.
The bedrooms upstairs are laid out nicely. In fact, there’s really nothing wrong with the upstairs. The upstairs and front porch save this one. Enjoy.
Uninspired and they can do better.
