The Exterior of Michaels’ Stunning House
A curved driveway lined with desert shrubs and trees leads to the front of the property, where there is a double garage for the homeowner to park their cars. There is then a footpath leading to the front of the house, and the house is entered through a stone archway with rustic wood doors. The exterior of the single-story property is terracotta with a flat roof. To the rear of the property, a red-curtained loggia links the interior and exterior spaces, and it runs the full width of the house. It has a wood-paneled ceiling with beams, and there are terracotta tiles on the floor. The loggia is the perfect space for alfresco dining, and it also has lounging areas and a pool table. Opposite the loggia is a lagoon-style outdoor swimming pool, which has a water slide set against a cascade of rocks. Next to the pool, there is a paved area with loungers and an outdoor eating space. Surrounding the pool area are lawns and stone-edged footpaths.
Other fun features of the grounds are a sand volleyball court, a half-court basketball court, and a dirt bike track. These features mean that the homeowner can have a lot of fun with their friends and family in their free time. There is also a guesthouse within the grounds, so guests can come and stay while retaining the privacy of both the homeowner and their guests. It is built in the same style as the main property, and it offers an additional 1,200-square-feet of space for guests. The guesthouse is accessed via a bridge that crosses a shallow ravine that runs between the guest house and the main residence. Trees line the edge of the grounds, and these offer a sense of privacy to the garden. However, there is enough open space between the trees to give stunning views across the surrounding area from the property’s elevated position.
