It’s hard to beat a Mediterranean home for sheer drama and curb appeal. Here are a few of our favorites. Outside, buyers will delight in romantic tile roofs, stucco, and gorgeous arches. Inside, utterly contemporary layouts seal the deal.

Smart Contemporary Layout

Just 42 feet wide, this impressive-looking family home has a smart layout that maximizes space. A two-sided fireplace warms both the dining room and the all-purpose great room. Buyers will love the kitchen’s openness and space at the wide island. The first-floor master suite is great for aging in place, and features a deluxe bathroom and two walk-in closets. Upstairs, three more bedrooms access an additional living space/den. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Splendid Turret

Dramatic style adorns practical spaces in this great new plan. The scene-stealing turret creates quite an entrance. Inside, head right to the study/bedroom 2, or left to arrive at the heart of the house. The spacious gathering room is served by the kitchen’s snack bar, and also opens to the back porch. A private foyer buffers the master suite from public view. A third bedroom near the front uses a full hall bath. See more images, information, and the floor plan.
