I am excited to show you the homes on this years Street of Dreams in Arizona. It has been 10 years since the last Street of Dreams was in Arizona and I was SO excited to tour these fabulous homes!
My own personal disclaimer: I am not a photographer and I only have a point and shoot camera. I tried my best to capture the rooms for you guys. I hope you enjoy the tours as much as I did. :)
First up is Casa Del Mio Coure (Home of my heart)-A blend of Santa Barbara Architecture and Spanish Tuscan Cohesion.
Design Profile, Inc.
After coming through the trimmed archways to the home we find a lovely front porch complete with an outdoor fireplace. In Arizona we have very mild winters and I love the outdoor fireplace. My home gets cozy enough with all my holiday baking!
Upon entering through the solid black walnut front door our eyes are drawn to the rear glass wall of windows to the beautiful pool with waterfall features. (which sadly I could not get a good shot of during the time of day I was there)
I did get you a beautiful shot of the beautiful wood work on the ceiling!
To the right of the entry there is the den/office
There was very interesting tile work through the home. Chevron pattern in reclaimed looking wood tile?? Yes please. :)
I loved the attention to detail even in the return HVAC vents. Beautiful!
Down the hall from the den is a bath. I loved the color, and the added plus is that it was done in Venetian plaster! Such a wonderful added texture.
Around the corner is the master bedroom.
Another fireplace, this time in the master bedroom. Such a luxury, and let's face it a little romantic. Tucked away in the ceiling are LED lights that provide even more ambiance :) And did you see that gold ceiling? Swoon!
Through a beautiful tiled archway we enter the master bath.
This shot makes me laugh, because everyone that came in the room while I was taking pictures kept commenting about the lit area under the vanity and how cool that was. It took a lot of effort for me not to look like a crazy person.....do you see it?
THE COUNTER TOP IS BACK-LIT PEOPLE!!!
Yes I meant that to be in all caps. Ha ha ha. The beautiful glow this created was unreal. The brochure we got says the counter is granite but I have never seen a back-lit granite top. They are most commonly Onyx, it might be a typo.
The other side of the bath was equally beautiful. The etching on the mirrors and shower glass was something I had not seen before. I like how it is referenced in the drapery as well.
Check out the ceiling of the shower! Beautiful tile work again!
Across the hall from the master are the kids rooms.
Such bright colors for the kids rooms but FUN! My daughter especially loved this room, and yes, she is a pink lover!
The kids room are joined by a jack and jill bath
Back to the entryway. The beautiful tile work continues to....
The dining room. Check out that mexican brick ceiling! Again back lit with LED lights, so beautiful. The tiled "rug" was a clever way to have a rug in the dining room and makes the clean up easy! The french doors open up to the front patio we saw earlier. What a beautiful way to have indoor-outdoor living that is so common here in Arizona.
Down the hallway towards the kitchen we have a beautiful pass through and a little extra storage worked in. Also, here is a view into the living room that I couldn't get before.
In the kitchen we find high-end appliances, Wolf and Subzero. The cabinetry is a white wash glaze with a sand through finish that reveals a hint of the wood color that we find in the home.
Off the kitchen is a butlers pantry/ wine cellar
Such beautiful colors in such a small space!
Here is a close up of the kitchen. the countertop is leathered and has a wonderful texture.
The wood on the island is all a single piece of walnut!
Off of the kitchen is the family room. Again the beautiful beamed ceiling made of Pennsylvania mushroom wood.
Off of the family room is the guest room and bath.
Complete with an en-suite and spacious closet.
Past the guest hallway is the laundry center/mudroom and exit to the side yard and the garage.
I hope you enjoyed the tour! I loved the privacy of the guest quarters yet the accessibility to the social areas of the home. What was your favorite part of the home?
Do you feel the home captured the blend of Santa Barbara Architecture and Spanish Tuscan Cohesion well?
Check back soon to view house #2!
Here is a sneek peek!
