Villa Dei Gemelli

Winter Park, FL

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.
