Inspired by travels, our Tuscan Villa home transports our client back to a relaxing vacation in Tuscany – every day. It blends classical architectural elements with modern touches to give it an old world European feeling.
Although this is a single family residence, we designed the exterior with multiple building-like masses to surround the whole house and give it the appearance of being a place for many to stay. Guests and visitors would never know that this home is actually two remodels done in two different phases, as the exterior invites you into a home where classic Tuscan architecture blends seamlessly with modern living.
The home has a big estate feel such as when you’re going to a resort; like you’re on vacation, at home. The landscaping lends it a European quality as much as the building itself and ties together nature and building.
