The Tuscany region of Italy is known for its wonderful wines like Chianti Classico, Brunello di Montalcino and the ever popular Collo dell’Etruria Centrale. Florence is recognized around the world as the most distinguished city for art, architecture and education. The Tuscan region was home to some of the renaissance greats such as Filippo Brunelleschi, Dante Alighieri, Luciano Laurana and of course Michelangelo. You can find many of their works of art and architechture they influenced in the museums of Florence but also see their influence throughout the Tuscan countryside south of Florence in the villas that speckle the hills between the towns and villages of Siena and San Gimignano.
Americans travel in droves to enjoy the beauty and culture of Tuscany every year. One particular resident of the Main Line of Philadelphia loved it so much that he chose to build his own Tuscan villa right here in the Great Valley area of the Main Line. This beautiful blend of Baroque and Florentine style architecture rests on over 21 acers of property in Chester County and it too is built to stand the test of time just as those found in Tuscany. A rich use of stone and marble adorn this entryway. If you listen closely, it is as if you can hear Romeo calling to Juliet in the balcony.
Once inside, this home boasts six VERY spacious bedrooms and seven full bathrooms. Included in there is the In-Law or AuPair suite complete with its own kitchen, dining and living facilities. A spiral staircase connects all three levels on one side of the home linking a game room and indoor pool facility to the master bedroom suite.
As many of you know, the outdoor spaces are always the areas of a home that catches my eye. Can you picture yourself enjoying a nice bottle of Brunello di Montalcino with your significant other on this pool patio at sunset? Or maybe you would prefer reading the book, “Under the Tuscan Sun” on a quiet evening?
From your own private lake and natural spring house, you can view this Tuscan style villa in Chester County from a distance.
