Spanish Mission Style Guest House
Spanish Mission Style Guesthouse
Meandering through this guest house is a journey coupling past Spanish inspirations with modern sophistications. From the outside, the building has an arched stucco centerpiece which connects the guest house to a mirror image pool house. The Spanish terra cotta clay roofing tiles rest upon the exterior stucco walls. All the steel framed windows flood light and warmth into the inner space. One can entry this guesthouse through a small tower with arched column openings. Underneath is the knotty alder, distressed door underscoring the sense of history before entering. The guesthouse and mirror image pool house wrap around a central pool. The main house is at the opposite end of the pool, creating a central courtyard for the compound. The wrought iron fencing with stucco arched entry openings, create an enclosed comfort from the wild county side in this rural central California region. Strolling into the guest house is a great room adjoining the living, kitchen, and dining areas. Keeping true to the mission inspiration, the ceiling is plaster with natural distressed stained wood beams. The entire space is lit with 4 wrought iron handmade chandeliers blending the delicate sophistication. The natural stone fireplace establishes the comfort at one end. While, at the other end of the room, there are two arched windows welcoming an outside gaze. Entering the warmth of the kitchen are stained mahogany cabinetry with a dark stained concrete top. The island gently separates the kitchen from the main space, allowing for informal dining. The two bedrooms in the structure invite the outside in. They bring a feeling of sleeping outside minus the cold and bugs. One serves as the master bedroom with a larger bed and the other has two twin beds. Each bedroom has its own bathroom which have Spanish mission style brightly painted tiles. The flooring for the entire building are natural limestone tiles.
