MONTEVERDI

FOR SIMILAR DESIGN SEE PAGE 132

FRONT EXTERIOR

With its multiple-hip roofline, intricately fashioned cast-stone detailing and copious arched windows and entryways, the Monteverdi typifies the quintessential Northern Italian estate home. A pair of wrought-iron gates draws the eye toward the magnificent arched entryway, which is flanked on either side by two balustradeenhanced terraces.

FOYER/WET BAR

A profusion of natural sunlight enters the foyer through a wrought-iron sheathed transom, accentuating the stone art niche. Adjacent to the foyer, the centerpiece of the wet bar area is the gorgeously painted and hand-stenciled groin ceiling.

KITCHEN

While the octagonal-shaped, beamed and coffered ceiling draws the eye upward, a dramatically sloped, stone-and-tile hood acts to balance the room's height. Stunningly veined granite countertops, including a cleverly split center island, complement the room's custom milled cabinetry.

REAR DECK VIEW

When designing this home, the goal was to embrace the spectacular views and incorporate them into the overall design. The outdoor fireplace, with its faultless detailing and two-way hearth, strengthens the relationship between the adjacent family room and outdoor living room by bringing the two rooms together as one.

FA M I LY R O O M

The family room opens onto the covered loggia through an expansive wall of retreating glass doors. The natural transition between the indoor living spaces and the outdoors is paramount to the intrinsic design and flow of the home.

LIVING ROOM

The fireplace, with its elaborate cut-stone surround, is flanked on either side by a pair of deep-set display niches. Just like a beautifully framed painting, the threepanel window draws attention to views of the stunning pool area.

MASTER BEDROOM

A succession of decorative columns seemingly supports the triple-stepped coffered ceiling, creating an intimate, canopy-like setting. Above the bed, a corbel-enhanced, arched niche blends into a tier of crown moulding creating a memorable milieu.

STUDY

A glass window separates the tub from the spacious walk-thru shower, which is accessible on either side through a pair of arched openings. Astute detailing, including the arched and mirrored vanity and several beautifully tiled surfaces, further enhance the master bath.

The centerpiece of the study is the magnificently carved marble fireplace. The façade, a fusion of linear influences and organically themed carvings, is one of the home's many focal points. Mullioned windows with corresponding arched transoms invite the outdoors inside.
