Let your senses be your guide….as you discover this iconic Italian villa, Casa De Leone, a 4+ bedroom custom estate, resting majestically among the hills of Cielo. Enter through the stone bell tower into the private sun drenched courtyard complete with fireplace, Vietri ceramic fountain, intricate stone and mosaic tile work. Designed with a vigilant eye. No detail in this home has been over looked.
The formal entry, with romantic ceiling mural, opens up to the formal living and dining room where one can relax by the centerpiece of the room, an intricate carved stone fireplace. Open beam ceiling with gorgeous chandeliers adorn this great room with doors opening onto the covered loggia—ideal for dining alfresco and taking in the panoramic southwesterly views. The kitchen features a sun splashed breakfast room, a stained-glass ceiling, an iron firebrick backsplash, farm sink, butler’s pantry and over-sized center-island, all opening to the family room with cozy fireplace. Two bedrooms found downstairs with the regal master retreat upstairs complete with view balcony, roaring fireplace, and spa bath with mosaic tile “rug”, stained-glass window, and pillars framing the soaking tub and an over-sized dressing room with custom furniture grade cabinetry. Across the courtyard from the main living space is the ultimate guest retreat; large bedroom with full bath and an additional room that is currently serving as an office, complete with custom storage and shelving.
Entertain in style with the summer kitchen with bar seating, private spa and lush lawns all overlooking the breathtaking views. Casa De Leone lives up to its name, resting high on the hill, keeping a watchful eye on all below, robust and strong on the outside, with intriguing artful nooks and niches inside.
