With the added versatility of a stylish detached casita, this exceptional Monterey design at La Quinta's guard-gated resort community of Trilogy is a brilliant choice for those who welcome friends and family. The casita, which helps create a gated entry courtyard, is also perfect for homeowners who would like a flexible space for an office, art studio, gym and features a mini-kitchen w/sink and beverage cooler & en suite bath. The 1-story plan spans approx. 1,965 s.f., and is characterized by a custom mural in the dining area, high ceilings, surround sound in the open great room (with TV/media niche), plantation shutters, a den/office, 3 bedrooms and 3 baths. Custom granite enhances the master bath, which offers a walk-in closet, sit-down vanity, and direct access to a master suite with curved bay window. Granite countertops (w/bullnose edging) with a full backsplash also enrich a kitchen that shines with deluxe stainless steel appliances, an island with breakfast bar, double ovens, gas cooktop, and large pantry. French doors off the dining area invite you to relax on the covered patio affording shade and comfort. A separate laundry room includes a large sink and ample cabinetry. Also in the main house is a separate bedroom for guests with adjacent bath. Handsome pavers accentuate the courtyard and a covered rear patio.
