An Italian villa on a hill...This exquisite custom home is a block off Duval in an X-flood zone. Divided into two structures joined by a covered, tiled portico, no expense has been spared. The common area features cathedral ceilings, Venetian lighting, oversized glass patio doors and a chef's European kitchen. Thick Cararra countertops with two carved sinks were imported from Italy. Cabinets are solid mahogany, and all is supported by reinforced concrete floors topped with black granite inset with hand-painted tile. The first floor of building 2 is home to the master bedroom/bath which opens to the patio and pool, a guest bedroom/bath and a laundry area. Upstairs are 2 more ensuite bedrooms which open individually onto a balcony. Make this unique home your family compound or B&B dream!Floors throughout are either Italian tile, Roman anastone or hardwood. The captivating great room chandelier was crafted by Archimedes Seguso and suspended from the reinforced ceiling with anchor chain swathed in silk. Outdoors is the large salt-water, solar-heated pool surrounded by a tiled patio. The owner is an avid orchid gardener; the custom arbors and an extensive irrigation system will tempt anyone with a green thumb. Amazingly, this home is quiet despite being a block from Duval, thanks to its combination of the solid concrete bedroom wing and the wood-frame and stucco living wing (completed in 2003). A concrete wall and double entry doors surround the property. The oversized doors of African mahogany were imported from Italy and fitted with American impact glass and feature secure European locking systems. Bahama shutters protect the streetside windows. With four ensuite bedrooms, a separate great room with kitchen and another full bath, and located in this prime neighborhood, this property makes a very special family compound or vacation rental. Add the pool, plenty of storage and off-street parking, and you have the complete luxury package.
