Kitchen & Great Rooms
Through the front door, enter the foyer and descend a few steps to the beautiful great room with sofas and a stone fireplace. A large stone arch separates the dining table from the chef’s kitchen.
The kitchen is set up for those who love to cook and for those who prefer to watch. It includes a large granite island, commercial six-burner gas stove with a lovely travertine hood, refrigerator, freezer with ice machine, wine cooler, large, hand-carved stone sink, dishwasher and microwave.
The great room has three French doors that open to the outside terrace with a stone “cooking” fireplace. The terrace is furnished to provide an additional dining room that can seat 12, and covered living room with exposed beam ceilings that include paddle fans.
The veranda is a great spot from which to take in the 50 mile views of the valleys and lakes. It overlooks the gardens, olive trees and the stunning infinity edge pool. The windows and doors in the house are fully screened to allow the wonderful Tuscan air to flow throughout, but on days when AC is preferable, every room has individual thermostats.
Another entertaining space can be found on the second floor. At the top of the stairs, situated on the same level as the Cortona and Siena bedrooms, is a large family room and balcony. Enjoy seating for 10, a large, room-heating fireplace, an HD LED 55” TV with Sky Cable, universal DVD player, DVD library for entertainment and a variety of games and books. French doors lead to the balcony with a round tile table and handmade iron chairs that is shared with the Siena bedroom.
