Furnished Long Term Rental. Elegant Tuscan villa has been exquisitely designed and inspired by Tuscan master craftsman. Each exterior stone was hand selected from the stone yard and then custom stained to replicate an authentic "Old World" Tuscan villa facade. The unique exterior stucco is a custom color mix of olive green with Monterey finish.
The interior tastefully blends Mediterranean-style furnishings and accessories with state-of-art technology. The entrance opens onto a light-filled two-story foyer featuring a grand circular staircase and a formal living area elegantly furnished with pieces echoing the Firenze style and a stone fireplace with a carved mahogany mantlepiece. Mahogany French doors open onto the front yard balcony overlooking the beautiful edible landscape. Adjacent to the living room is the formal dining room. The exquisite dining table has inlaid deep mahogany veneers with tressel barley twisted legs and features expanded seating for eight and is paired with a matching china cabinet and server. The finishing touch in this room is the coffered ceiling of pecan/walnut paneling. This area of the main floor also includes an in-home office or extra bedroom with built-in cabinets and drawers, closet and an attached full bathroom.

Many of the summer edibles included in the property's garden spaces are three varieties of grapes (Chardonnay, Cabernet and red table), artichokes, heirloom tomatoes, blueberries, corn, pumpkin, watermelon, cucumber, peppers, cabbages, eggplant, lemons, herbs and a heritage olive tree. The garden is transformed as the summer fades to fall to reflect the best of the cool season produce like Winterbor and Tuscan Kale, Romanesco cauliflower, winter red cabbage, leeks, peas, lettuces, fennel to name a few. No need to visit the farmers market!
The perfect addition to any gourmet's artisan pasta sauce or ragout is within just a few steps of the front or back doors. In the early spring, the front yard is carpeted with red Firenze poppies that are reminiscent of the hills outside of Florence, Italy. Sit on the balcony at dusk, sip some wine and enjoy the sounds of the fountain and wind chimes as you imagine yourself in the courtyard of a Tuscan villa.
