Resort-like Residence


I thought I'd show you the next house we visited last Sunday and then I'll save the last two for a later post.  This house looked very much like a southwestern resort.  It was sprawling and designed with a Spanish style.  Above is an entrance to small courtyard on one side of the home.


The pool area was large and wide.  (Sorry about that rain drop on the lens in the upper left corner.  I didn't see it when I was taking the photos.)


This area was on the opposite side of that entrance courtyard above and it leads to a guest house.


And this is another small courtyard on the opposite side of the house.  It was completely enclosed and private.  


Turning around from taking the photo above, I noticed this large window that looks right into the bathroom.  The people who live here can soak in that giant tub while viewing that lovely fountain in the photo above.  Our welcome rain added a measure of distortion but, most of the time that glass would be crystal clear.  What a life!

I wonder how many people live in this "resort." Maybe it's a B&B? It is gorgeous, for sure. But when I see places like this I always consider the cost of upkeep, which would be a pretty penny!

This place is tremendously appealing.

Such beautiful gardens. I don't know if I would be totally comfortable in that bath even though the courtyard is enclosed and private - I think I like to cocoon!

A little too much I think, but if people enjoy it, why not.

Steve Reed said...

I agree with Stefan. A bit too much like a hotel, I think! But hey, if they're into it, more power to them.

Lifestyles of the rich and private. Reminds me a bit of the Arizona Inn in Tucson Dave recommended to us a couple of years ago, only nicer.

Very, very nice. (Hate to mention it, but many homes in Naples are similar in quality and size . . . we both live in places where many residents are financially successful.)
