The owners of this home gave great thought to every aspect of the construction & design of this elegant, spacious, charming, & private estate villa in a magnificent, over 1 acre setting with stunning views. Inspired by travels throughout Europe, particularly Italy & France with added inspiration from colonial Mexican architecture, every detail is thought out and brilliantly executed. They have created a masterpiece. The owner explains, ''What we love most about each of these places is the sense of history that one lives with on a daily basis through the beautiful craftsmanship displayed in the building architecture and art itself. There is a sense of comforting permanence in these things. Once you enter the property, the intent is to instill a sense of peace & calm, which is further enhanced upon entering the courtyard where you pass a serene Koi pond on the way to the front door. The colors of the main living area were taken from dishes bought in Ravello, Italy. The rest of the house colors are based on Czech artist Alphonse Mucha's Four Seasons painted in the round on the dining room ceiling customized by Georgana Ireland. An artist friend designed the custom Italian Sicis mosaics in the kitchen & powder room. The house is meant to be a living art treasure.'' And it is.The gifted architect Juan Carlos Ochoa oversaw the entire project. Some excellent features include a magnificent kitchen, beautiful carved Cantera fireplaces, pillars, iron sconces,and stone arches.
