Gold Nugget Winners 2015: Best Homes Between 3,000 And 3,499 Square Feet
These award-winning homes make full use of the surrounding scenery.
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.
