This architectural gem was inspired from a Tuscan Hillside Villa. The property’s natural setting in the hills of Southern California resembles that of Tuscany with its rolling terrain, oak trees, sage and rugged valleys. The single story floor plan and design resulted from the client’s desire to have this home personify his love for art and his leisure lifestyle. The casual symmetry of the 4,000 SF floor plan revolves around a central cloister patio that also defines the casual living spaces. A sleek, contemporary Italian interior design is juxtaposed against the exterior’s rusticated Tuscany motif. The playful contrast of random size stone and smooth plaster walls, modulating plate heights, towers with peek window accents and tiled gable roof elements were all inspired by the romance of the Tuscan farmhouse. Rich landscaping is enhanced by individual private garden patios, low planter walls, fountains and terraced entry features.
