An amazing home

JMA traditional exterior

Location, Location, Location!!!

I think I'm in Luuurve....


JMA traditional patio

Is this the most amazing alfresco area you've seen lately. I can see myself entertaining here year round.     
 It would be lovely to sit in front of the fire sharing a bottle of red wine with friends.

Such a stylish open plan kitchen

JMA traditional living room

A lovely sunny lounge area

JMA traditional family room

or a very private sitting room

Is this the fanciest horse stable on the planet, what lucky ponies to reside in such luxury!

JMA or Jim Murphy & Associates are responsible for building this gorgeous home on 11 acres in
Santa Rosa , CA  USA.
 Take a look at their website for a peek at a few more of there spectacular projects.
Any way I'm off to buy a lottery ticket because my dreams just got bigger,
didn't yours?

Some beautiful rooms in that home...I think its possible to recreate that look in Aus and for it to blend just as nicely with our surrounds.
The kitchen is my fave.

Those stables are amazing!!! I would love to keep my pony in something like that and myself in a house like that one! ha.

It is a lovely house and I would happily sit out on the patio in front of the fire enjoying a glass or two of red wine! Perfect. xx

What a gorgeous house! There is not a room in there that I don't love either. I agree that alfresco area is just amazing, yep you could hold a few pretty good gatherings there.:D

Hi Trish, I would share a bottle of red with you on that patio - how lovely! Have you also had a look at the house kerry at Driftwood Interiors has posted today? Another gorgeous home too... in Australia and for sale if you win lotto tonight. I don't think you will because that is my plan... ;-)
