As you walk up to the front door of this custom-built Valmonte home on an elevated corner lot, it is easy to feel the inspiration from Villas in the Hills of Tuscany in this heirloom-quality home. From the custom mosaics and wrought iron details, to the wood beamed ceilings, there is an old-world charm and craftsmanship not found in many homes today. True to form, this home was built around a central courtyard that embraces the afternoon sun. Both the living room and family room open to welcome in the sounds of splashing water and the scents of lavender and orange blossoms on the afternoon breeze. Relax with family and friends around the fireplace inside, or around the fire pit in the privacy of the courtyard. The chef of the house will be right at home in the kitchen that offers a 48” Viking range, center island with granite counters, and sunny breakfast nook – all of which is open to the family room for friends and family to gather. For more formal occasions the spacious dining room is the place to host intimate dinner parties, and it connects to the kitchen through the butler’s pantry equipped with wine fridge and sink. Upstairs, the master bedroom features wood beamed vaulted ceilings and a private balcony overlooking the courtyard. The elegant master bath includes dual vanity, soaking tub, and a walk-in shower. You’ll also find 2 light filled bedrooms, an office, and laundry room off the upstairs hallway. Downstairs there is an additional bedroom with a private entry and en suite bath perfect for overnight guests. The kids and pets will find plenty of space to play in the grassy backyard just outside the family room. From the solid hickory floors and custom stonework and mosaics throughout the house, the pictures don’t do this home justice – you need to see it in person to truly appreciate it!
