An Italian inspired villa in the Pittsburgh community of Upper Saint Clair, this new home combines luxurious living with traditional materials and building practices. The villa has been designed with careful thought in combining classic Italian villa elements with the modern luxuries of American life.
The home is located in a neighborhood with similarly sized homes atop a hill at the end of a heavily wooded street, providing both privacy and quiet scenery to the residents.
At the center of the home is an open courtyard complete with a central reflecting pool. The main entry living areas of the residence surround this courtyard. A large, vaulted great room sits to the side, with views out all sides toward the surrounding countryside. Attached to the master suite is a private garden, a staple of many Italian villas, with more views to the surrounding countryside. The lower level contains many of the modern amenities, including a media room, workshop, in-ground pool, and a home gym. A mother-in-law suite is included on the property, detached from the main residence and nestled into the surrounding hillside.
