With cream-colored stucco walls beneath a red tiled roof and cedar pillars framing the stone front porch, this home displays the elegant Spanish colonial style.

Reconstructed five years ago, the exterior was transformed from the original single-story rambler. At the same time, the dwelling still provides the convenience of single-story living with the four bedrooms and three full baths on the main level.

The home’s style is featured throughout. At the end of the circular driveway, a wrought-iron balcony rises above the tiled two-story entrance hall. To the left of the foyer, the open great room features wooden window and door frames between the beamed ceiling and hardwood floor. Two sets of glass doors face the front porch and the fountain beyond, while a pond and parkland across the road provide additional scenic views.

Against the rear wall of the great room, there is an adobe stucco built-in bookcase and a stone fireplace. This area opens to a tiled kitchen, which features golden granite counters and wooden panels concealing the dishwasher and Sub-Zero refrigerator. The upscale appliances also include a stainless-steel Jenn-Air range. Knotty pine doors open onto the pantry, which provides a second refrigerator.

A glass door leads from the kitchen to the patio, koi pond and fountain, which are surrounded by lavish landscaping and towering trees. The fenced one-acre lot also includes a shed and a carport.

Adjoining the kitchen, sliding glass doors connect the skylit, tiled dining area with the swimming pool and the nine-person hot tub that conveys. Outdoor speakers and lighting can enhance the summer fun. The dining room also includes a full bath.

To the right of the main-floor entrance hall, the master suite includes a private bath with a decorated tile shower surround and a safety grab bar beside the commode. Further down the hall, the other three bedrooms share a full bath, and all four feature hardwood floors. This level also provides a laundry room with a sink.

To the left of the main-floor dining room, additional built-in, arched adobe bookshelves stand beside the winding wrought-iron stairway. The second-story balcony overlooks the dining area and entrance hall. This level also includes a carpeted room that can be used as an office or fitness center.

Near the kitchen, the two-car garage adjoins the house, while the patio provides another garage entrance. The public schools are Flint Hill Elementary, Thoreau Middle and Madison High. The house is part of the Carriage Hills community.
