Italian villa – Ocala, Florida
This Mediterranean-style classic offers incredible curb appeal with its triple slump-arched front porch. A paved courtyard sweeps past the entrance to access the 3-car garage, above which the Bonus Room rests with its balustrade balcony. The staircase tower is topped with square windowpanes and exposed rafter tails, creating an element of height pinning the home’s two main wings together.
Upon entering the Foyer a wide-open view awaits in this beautiful Italian villa. Across the rear, a set-of-three French doors mirror the front doors, each lending beautiful views of the covered lanai. A barrel-vaulted ceiling adds height and drama to this grand open space. The Parlor and Dining Room areas are defined by a row of tapered columns.
The secluded Master Suite is separated by a private entry with lighted niche. The Master Bedroom is topped with a vaulted ceiling, while its sitting room is well lit by three tall arched windows. An extra large walk-in closet leads to the Master Bath with dual vanities, soaking tub, large walk-in shower with its private garden views.
The public areas remain on the other side of the Italian villa home, a hallway directs guests to either the rear public areas or the Guest Bedrooms. The gourmet Kitchen is at the heart of the home with easy access to the Family Room and Nook. The breakfast bar offers a casual dining option and also makes for easy entertaining. The Family Room opens completely to the rear Lanai thru two walls of glass sliders, and its coffered ceiling adds an elegant statement. A convenient Powder Room is tucked around the corner next to a secondary Pantry.
The Guest Bedrooms share a Jack and Jill Bath near the Garage entry of the home.
The Utility Room offers a sink and plenty of counter top space. The Garage entry makes room next the stairs for a Mud area with walk-in closet.
Taking the stairs up the well-lit Tower reveals above and below views all the way to the 28’4” ceiling. The Bonus Room could be anything you want, a Game Room, an Office, even a 4th Bedroom. It accommodates a full bath with walk-in-closet and morning kitchen. French doors open to the courtyard balcony while drama is added with the vaulted ceiling above.
