Monte Sereno Tuscan Custom Home

This Tuscan beauty is a perfect family getaway. A grand entrance flows into an elongated foyer with a stone and wood inlay floor, a box beam ceiling, and an impressive fireplace that lavishly separates the living and dining rooms. The kitchen is built to handle seven children, including copper-hammered countertops intended to age gracefully. The master bath features a celestial window bridge, which continues above a separate tub and shower. Outside, a corridor of perfectly aligned Palladian columns forms a covered portico. The columns support seven cast concrete arches.

Don't have that info any longer. Home was built over 10 years ago. Could be built out of any stable, paint grade wood. Paint color needs to be choosen in the room island will be placed due to varying light conditions.

The refrigerator in the picture is a refrigerator only. I believe 48" subzero, but that is a guess.

The image in this fireback is a theme from De La Fontaine: 'The fox in the vineyard', a french fireback, probably from the 19th century. We have more than 500 old and antique firebacks that can be used as backsplashes at
