 Great Family Outdoor Experience in a Stucco Mediterranean House

House plan 136-1014

Do you like the mingling cultures of Asia, Europe and Africa? Are you fascinated with terraces and courtyards? If the answer is an astounding yes, this Mediterranean house plan might be the right house for you. You can have gardens or fountains outside and chandeliers or mantelpieces inside. Your house may be built on hills or by the ocean and may be decorated with landscape plants. Many homes in the West Coast of California and the East Coast of Florida are built using this architecture, because these states have the same climate as the Mediterranean region.

This luxury house plan is defined by an open style with large exterior windows, a low-pitched, tiled roof, and stucco siding. This openness hearkens toward pleasant weather, making the Mediterranean house plan a favorite for warm climate locales. While any house plan seeks a stunning appearance, few equal the raw curb appeal of the Mediterranean design. Its hallmark archways and verandas will provide you with a sense of luxury without going over the top. It will protect your family as well from the scorching sun by using insulation. A remarkable feature of this plan is its stucco finish and tile roof so that they reflect heat rather absorb it. One of the biggest plus in this design also is the hip roof because its aerodynamic design performs better in windstorms and reduced structural damage. It also comes with side entry garage, which now a “must-have” for it keeps the pavement out from the front of the house.

Does your family enjoy the feel of outdoors? A sunroom can be a pleasant addition to your home. It’s a great way to take advantage of the natural light and extend your family’s enjoyment through all seasons and any weather. This plan also features a game room for the kids and adults as well. Its spiral staircase gives it a nice, glamorous look and its balcony overlooking the great room is a sight as well.

Want a moment alone? You can have your peaceful moment in the study room where you can have everything at your disposal – from books, to documents, to a comfy chair to spend your quiet afternoon.

Having your masters bedroom located in the first floor and separate from the rest of the rooms, should evoke an “ahhhh” feeling for it should functions as a sanctuary to relieve the stress from the hustle-bustle outside your home.

Your kitchen is the most used room in your house. For it to be fully functional, kitchen area should be something to consider. This plan has a huge kitchen and walk-in pantry where you can stuff your kitchen essentials. If members of your family like to congregate in the kitchen, or talk to you while you cook, an island can add additional casual eating and social space.

If you want functionality with elegance so it is purposeful and look good at the same time, go for this Mediterranean house plan. It is an architectural style that can be tailored to meet your budget.
