Modern Hacienda is a collection of Mexican styled homes that consider the beauty of the tropical patio, and what it brings to the enjoyment for the rest to the house.  Discover the sense of security and tranquility from the sound of falling water that comes from a central fountain, and soon realize the flexibility gained by being able to expand your living area to the outdoors.

The entry courtyard is accessed through wrought iron gates then leading to an open air courtyard. The delightful outdoor courtyard is available for dining with features like a fireplace and fountains.
