The owners of this residential estate envisioned a Tuscan inspired residence that met the needs of their demanding family and lifestyle while preserving the fantastic views surrounding them. The prime location within the Southern Highlands residential development adjacent to the 12th hole fairway of the golf course appealed to the owner and thus desired to integrate the dramatic views into the property design. The design of the home required that the exterior site elements fit seamlessly and blend to the interior spaces for year round use. The site elements included the following: a symmetrical pool with dramatic focal points, shallow ledge areas, play zone, and swim lap capabilities, a heated spa near the master suite, multiple entertaining areas, shaded patio spaces, rose garden, courtyard with old world fountain, and decorative paving/sitewall elements, a dog run, landscape lighting and Italianate furnishings and planting containers
