Immensely big mansion
Recently in August 2016, Draya Michele and her fiance Dallas Cowboy hottie Orlando bought a huge mansion – 5 bedrooms beautiful home for around $2.8 million in Los Angeles, California.There is nothing that’s missing out on this manor : Design, pieces of furniture, equipment, beautification – all intact. The house is fully colored in white and it really is a dream house anyone could dream of.
Draya’s fiance chose the right home for a family of 6, four children and the parents. 5 bedrooms would just be enough for the cute little family right? The house is spread across 6300 sq. ft. and is located at a private and quite society in Tarzana – in San Fernando Vallery region. Tarzana is mostly known to be a residential community site.
Once you peek into the house, I can bet that you will definitely get lost with the beauty it presents. Just when you enter, it looks no less than a palace, the wide spaces, illuminating stairs would remind you of the mansion showcased in the movie ” The Great Gatsby”. The stairs are spread out on two sides which separate from the first floor. The designs in the stairs are incorporated in a beautiful manner which provides extra glam to the entrance hall.
The most striking feature of this house is that there are more than one living room – the uncountable number of chairs, tables and resting sofas. The walls are painted with white on the top and lower ends and the rest is filled with beautiful light muddy brown color.
While the halls are floored with marbles, remaining rooms are parketed with wooden flooring. The curtains match with that of the wall coloring too. The living room is just absolutely lovely.
The sofas complement the walls, the cushions are silver, black and white in color. There is a beautiful piano situated right in front of the window arena. And how would an American home miss out on a Firewood section?
Moving on to the kitchen, the size is just fit for their family. Everything is intact. Since there are children in the family, glasses and cups are safely stored in the cupboard – out of reach for their children. The cupboards are painted white while the cooking area and preparations slabs are granite-polished.
The bedroom is absolutely phenomenal, a king sized bed with LED TV right in front and a treadmill for fitness. There is a big window in the room which provides more than enough warmth and brightness to the room with a beautiful view of the front yard.
My personal favorite among all is the front yard! It obviously is clean but moreover, there is a small pool located, enough vegetation to keep the area fresh.
A slide is attached along with the pool where the children can enjoy themselves at home – a personal water park. In front of the pool is a resting area, shaded with a triangular hut. Draya and Orlando can definitely take a rest there while their children enjoy at the pool.
The bathroom is absolutely mesmerizing. Did you know that Draya’s home sweet home has 7 bathrooms! That’s like more in number than total bedrooms! The lightings look expensive, the bathtub is covered with designed stones and there are two mirrors with bathroom cabinets under each.
On the one end of the mansion, there is a section specifically separated for Barbeque preparation. The equipment is pre-installed and there is ample space with chairs and tables to enjoy a nice barbecue session with family and friends.
The dining table is right behind the huge living room where the chairs are covered in white and the table is coffee brown in color. A chandelier is attached on top of the table and an antique candle holder is in the middle of the table. The table is just right for the number of members in Draya’s family.
A fascinating section in their home is the BAR section! Yes, you read it right! There is a corner which has been separated for alcoholic beverages. We could guess quite a lot of parties to be happening in their house.
Even though Draya’s lover Orlando is a football player, it would not be surprising to see a basketball court in his house, would it? After all one of the main benefits of basketball leads to fitness. There is a right-sized basketball court at their home for the children to help themselves stay fit.
