In the gated community of Bridle Ranch in Queen Creek, Arizona, Toll Brothers is offering six single-level home designs ranging from 2,900 to 4,200 square feet. Residents of the neighborhood enjoy a community park, an outdoor fireplace, and a playground, geared toward outdoor living and entertainment.
Extending the outdoor living theme to the home designs, the Ambrosia model, with three bedrooms, three baths, and 2,946-plus square feet, includes carefully curated outdoor areas that meld with its interior spaces.
Beginning at the generously sized covered front porch, potential buyers have the option to furnish the area as is or add French doors from the formal dining room to create an indoor-outdoor connection.
Continuing past the formal dining room, foyer, and flex space, the great room connects directly to the rear covered patio through large sliding glass doors. Buyers have myriad door choices, including multipanel pocket doors, stacking doors, and a 90-degree sliding door option, which creates an open corner between interior and exterior.
A detached guest casita is also an option for buyers. The backyard unit includes a sitting area, a kitchenette, a full bath, and a bedroom with its own private patio.
The Ambrosia model showcases the guest casita, a luxurious pool, an adjacent covered dining area, and several other modern structures and features by landscape designer Creative Environments.
The Gold Nugget judging panel compares the project with “a small resort” or “private getaway.”
“It’s just beautifully done,” notes one juror. “It features lots of outdoor spaces that can be used by all members of the family, but everybody is still in the same outdoor area, having a good time together.”
