Love the stucco/tile roof
Tower-like chimneys. No detail is too small. This functional chimney is given special treatment with moldings and little windows.
Arcades. A series of arches supported by columns is called an arcade. This is an old architectural feature which originated in Rome. In the Mediterranean, the arcades sheltered walkways in town squares.
Natural stucco. Though it costs a little more and requires a little more maintenance, there are many reasons to use natural stucco over synthetic stucco — the best of which is that natural stucco will take on a patina as it ages that a synthetic stucco just won't. So rather than all uniform and monolithic, I'll choose uneven and full of character.
Clay tile. Like the stucco walls that support them, clay tile roofs are created by mixing natural materials and forming the mix into a special shape. As each tile weathers and ages differently, the whole roof takes on the feeling that it has been there forever and will continue to be there for some time.
You might want to try one of my favorites, a pink rugosa rose, for a rugged, tough plant that will grow in harsh conditions.
Love the exterior look
Love the blue door
A simple stone pathway leads to a perfect waterfront view. Fragrant thyme and beautiful Siberian irises complete this dreamy outdoor space.
