For this magnificent residence, I conceived a vision to transform the family’s dream into a remarkable reality. The final outcome masterfully sculpted a brand new abode into the solid granite hillside on five sprawling acres, granting captivating views of Folsom Lake. Honoring the client’s desires, their previous structure was razed to clear the path for an exquisite Tuscan-inspired villa.

The architectural marvel elegantly embraces a central courtyard, seamlessly blending the realms of nature and the indoor living spaces. The combination of wooden beams, intricately crafted ironwork, and towering granite stonework creates an exquisite ambience. Through the retractable family room wall, a portico frames breathtaking views beyond the vanishing edge pool. These outdoor living areas, epitomize elegance, ideal for entertaining and savoring moments of pure bliss. Bellissimo!
