The Merlot is a classic design balancing structure with a dash of panache. The open floor plan is airy and bright with gorgeous windows offering an unobstructed view of your covered patio. Grab a chair and sip your coffee while an impromptu nature scavenger hunt keeps the kids occupied. Mud-splattered clothes are no problem with the utility room tucked conveniently behind the gourmet kitchen. Once your intrepid explorers have eaten, send them upstairs to a game room equipped with desks and cozy reading nooks to continue their scientific studies. At the end of the day, they can curl up in the media room to watch “It’s a Bug’s Life” while you pull the camping equipment out of storage for further adventures.
