    Finally! A better than decent home from Texas. I really like the exterior. Good mix of formal and informal, and the exterior lighting is gorgeous. Interior needs help, but nothing major. Anyone know what the strip of dirt in the back is for? Archery range?

    I would classify this one as “Goldilocks” because it is just right. It’s not huge and over the top. And it’s not boring or completely bland like some cookie cutter Mediterraneans. It’s a good size and all the rooms are proportionate and usable. All the typical major amenities are present.

    The exterior is pretty nice. It’s subtle, traditional, and well weighted. I love the kitchen, the office, and the dining room. My favorite parts are the outdoor areas. You can tell the previous owners loved being outside and having good times. The backyard is damn delicious. 🙂 I really like the home theater except I would change the blue lights to a softer hue. The office screams high tech without being too over the top.

    I’m not fond of the all brick wine cellar and some of the interior could use a tiny tiny bit more zing. I would probably change some of the paint schemes to more 2012 and less 2007 but I’m really splitting hairs here. And this particular home is very traditional Spanish looking and that’s not my style. I can’t fault the home though – it’s just not my thing. Okay I’m going to stop because I’m getting too picky.

    Be sure to check out the listing! There are many, many more pictures there! Overall it’s a really nice Med and I would be VERY happy to have this as a vacation home. 🙂

    It’s a lovely house, both inside and out. I’d do some interior redecorating to make it feel a little less staid, but the bones of the house are very nice. The first thing to go would be the cross above the living room fireplace. When entertaining, it’s somewhat depressing to have an ancient execution device hanging above your mantle. Plus, it’s way too ecclesiastical for my tastes. The room sizes seem nice – livable without being cavernous – and the detailing looks nicely done. I do like the Memorial area, if’n I were forced to live in Houston.

    Beautiful home, really nice. Love the exterior and interior. I’d leave the cross, I look at it as a symbol of God, not some ancient execution device! Lovely home all around.
