LA QUINTA, CA
This elegant home appears as a Tuscan Village in the desert. The home is uncompromising both in classic Tuscan detailing and its floor plan layout for the desert/golf lifestyle. Inspired by a Tuscan farm house village concepts, this villa's entry courtyard lives and interacts with a multitude of spaces, including two exterior stair cases, one leading to a casita, the other to an office. A defined entry tower anchors the courtyard and an elevated terrace off the Motor Court extends the Great Room to the courtyard, much like an ancient Italian village where the central court becomes the gathering place. But this is only half the story, once you enter this home, you are greeted by a breathtaking view of the golf course and picturesque desert mountains. The home's central living area is uncompromising in its indoor/outdoor lifestyle, accentuated by a series of disappearing doors. The owner's bedroom suite has the best of all worlds with both viewing opportunities to the golf course, and a bathroom that lives to an additional private courtyard with spa. Another key feature is the unique sky deck, accessible by an intimate spiraling passageway leading to additional living space including an office and entertaining space. With the drama of the courtyard, the indoor/outdoor living floor plan, the addition of a sky deck and the perfection of architectural detailing, this home has optimized golf/desert lifestyle living with Tuscan flair.
