Virtually every room in this four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath Dauphino home opens onto or overlooks the veranda. The veranda of the Dauphino house plan is a spacious setting for intimate conversations as well as large gatherings. Interesting outdoor spaces are created by the movement of the house. This effect is achieved by abandoning conventionally shaped square or rectangular rooms for ones with more complex geometric character.
Architectural elements of the Dauphino used outside, colonnades, arches, corbels and columns are repeated inside. Large fixed windows and moveable walls of glass welcome in natural light. This offers expansive views of the home's place in the world, no matter where that place may be. The leisure room seems to float into the veranda. Bayed windows in other rooms of the Dauphino also have double French doors with direct access to these special outdoor spaces.
Mitered windows used in the breakfast nook, the master suite sitting area and a sitting area in the second-floor guest room offer maximum views. A trio of circular transoms top French doors in a first-floor guest room, and transoms accent the dining room. Faux painting warms walls throughout. Architectural ceilings featuring steps, a coffer in the study and a wood-clad pyramid in the leisure room add dramatic interest.
Columns lend a degree of formality and subtle definition between the grand foyer, living room and dining room. A two-sided fireplace is shared by the living room and study. Extraordinary attention to detail is seen throughout the home. This is evident in the wood-and-iron banister of the staircase. The arched windows, the hand carved stone fireplace in the living room, and impressive stone vanity in the powder bath show the unique interiors. Some of the ceilings soar up to twenty-two feet. The house plan has 5804 square feet of living area and it offers a slab/stem wall foundation.
