Winter Park, Florida
The vision for Via Gavannetto was to create a “100 year old” home that would be very much in keeping with the older very established neighborhood, yet at the same time do justice to the magnificent 1.76 acre lake front lot with the most commanding water views in the area. The home was built in a classical design with a brick façade; white washed to age it. The main home features five bedrooms, magnificent views from the kitchen, formal living and dining rooms, the gentleman’s lounge, master bedroom and family room. The basement features a grand theatre plus billiard room with adjoining conditioned wine room and bar area for large family gatherings and entertainment. There are two separate guest apartments and a pool cabana with Summer Kitchen and alfresco dining area. All are set in a beautifully landscaped setting with a putting green and a clay tennis court. Built to enjoy by sports enthusiasts on a magnificent lakefront setting!
Coastal Volusia County, Florida
This magnificent 7,000-square-foot waterfront home with 4 bedrooms and 7 baths, is located on 1.5 acres in coastal Volusia County. The home’s commanding water views are complemented with striking Balinese architecture, which captures the beautiful balance of nature with a high-performance home. The extensive use of expansive mahogany windows and doors is paired with deep overhangs to allow for cooler temperatures and a more tranquil environment. The home includes an art room, contemporary theater room, separate exercise room, mechanic’s garage, catering kitchen, infinity-edge pool, and extensive woodwork and ceiling details throughout. An exotic resort setting in Central Florida without traveling to Bali to experience it!
Ponce Inlet, Florida
This coastal Volusia oceanfront home started like most beachfront homes: Create a tranquil, relaxing environment that will be a magnet for family and friends. Then add in a home office and an additional living room on the second floor, and pair it with an area for a pool table and bar. Now the stage is set for a fun retreat, which enables entertaining space on two levels while also capturing fantastic views of the Atlantic Ocean.
The color palette mimics the colors of nature immediately surrounding the home. White, blues, and greys provide an effortless transition from indoors to outdoors. The kitchen, dining room and first-floor family room all open to each other. Together they create a large gathering spot that spills onto a spacious covered lanai overlooking the pool and ocean. Paradise found!
Villa dei Gemelli
Winter Park, Florida
An impressive two story curved glass piece of art that doubles as a staircase, greets you as you enter the “House of Twins”; aptly named for a family of four who built their dream home consisting of wide open spaces, green construction elements, indoor-outdoor living and a tranquil environment to raise their young family. Energy sensibility, as well as beauty, was the focus throughout the home with ICF block walls, icynene, high seer HVAC, on demand water, energy efficient windows and appliances. The indoor-outdoor lifestyle incorporates extensive La Cantina folding doors to take advantage of cool evenings. Dropped ribbed panels anchor the impressive backlit barrel ceiling in the family room. Accentuating the entertainment area is a wall of stacked stone incorporating a linear fireplace, two large salt water aquariums, and an adjacent impressive wall of glass, 40’ wide, opening onto several large lanais overlooking the pool and entertaining areas. Zodiac urns for each family member flank the pool and an Italian hand carved fountain of the twins graces an inner garden courtyard. Beautiful curved glass rotundas accentuate the master suite, master shower, and breakfast nook. A casita, wine room, study and generous entertaining areas complete the home.
