It makes sense that the merit and grand winners in the 3,000 to 3,499 square foot category of the Gold Nugget Awards play up their large windows, courtyards and indoor/outdoor spaces. All four homes are located in areas famed for their great vistas.
Enchantment, a merit winner in Sedona, Ariz., has a great room connected to a courtyard, along with an elevated view of the desert and red rock surroundings. The merit-winning Haus Two features a wraparound porch that lets its residents see the adjacent Denver neighborhood. The remaining merit winner, 1 Channel Island, is located in Encinitas, Calif., and the house plays up the coastal vibe of this surf-side locale.
Grand-winning Revelle at Clancy Lane tops them all. Located in Coachella Valley, Calif., the house features variations on desert modern architectural style, which. It's not all desert, though: the house is situated in the heart of plush green golf course country.
Of course, all four homes are pacious and inventive inside their four walls, too. Come take a look.
