Grand Foyer: As you enter the home circular walls of meticulously placed limestone graced by two Italian antique Savonarola chairs greet you and your guests. An elegantly curtained passage of gold velvet and Renaissance-inspired prints hide a spiral staircase that leads from the ground floor to a private retreat above. Custom designed Travertine flooring is hand chiseled into a Versailles pattern that runs from the entry courtyard through the bottom floor and out to the garden patios.
Colonnade: This is the core of the home. At the very center of this space, set into the travertine floor, is an imported hand-carved floor medallion based on a German Renaissance rosette design. An oil painted mural executed in 15th century Renaissance style graces the pendentive dome ceiling; a strong rich palette of jeweled tones portray classical figures and painted landscapes and the 'Joys of Life': music, dance, courtship, and family. Through the oculus sits a gold-leafed cupola with cobalt blue windows divided by hand carved marble columns. Four soaring arches frame the eighteen foot square space that is sectioned into several conversation zones. Comfortable, intimate seating flanks the enormous fireplace on either side along with an oversized leather ottoman. Two curved Renaissance-inspired couches covered in fabrics of gold, cobalt blue, and deep red beckon visitors to sit.
Living Area: The walls of the main living areas are hand rubbed with inviting, warm golden tones. Large comfortable sofas covered in velvet and overstuffed chairs create a more relaxed environment. Eight specially designed forged-steel torches scale the wall as if in a medieval castle and bathe the room in a warm amber glow. Fabric covered groin vaults grace the perimeter of a deeply coffered ceiling supported by hand-carved, imported marble corbels. Light filters through the cobalt blue clerestory windows above, projecting a magical translucent blue light to the floor. Four ceiling fans drop from the 17-foot ceiling to stir a refreshing breeze, and a pair of bronze mythological figures stands guard over the home. An 10'x27' wall of hanging glass panels slide along a track and disappear from view, providing unobstructed passage from the Great Room into exterior pool area: pool, spa, gardens and a view of the golf course and the lake.
Bar: The entry bar is adorned with hand-carved marble architectural elements that support the granite counter tops and cabinetry. A soothing and relaxing wall of bubbles entertains guests.
Dining: With a groin vaulted ceiling of cobalt blue and eight-point gilded stars, the dining room is done in a medieval castle decor. Heavy wooden furniture establishes a solid presence in the dining room featuring a hand-carved table and twelve crested high-backed chairs. An oversized, hand-carved wood hutch hugs the golden, hand-rubbed walls arched windows are trimmed with crimson velvet curtains and amber beaded fringe and a fresh water aquarium lined with cobalt blue glass tile finishes the effect.
Kitchen: The expansive kitchen with hand-rubbed antiqued walls in shades of burnt orange, old-world travertine floor and countertops, and an abundance of natural light make this one of the most inviting parts of the house. A sweeping bi-level center island with a massive travertine countertop offers seating for twelve. A gilded domed ceiling echoes the shape of the center island below. The islands cook top is a commercial four-foot Teppan grill over which hangs a custom designed, hand forged copper and brass hood.
