This classic Italian Villa with an open center courtyard design was built in 2005 on the grounds of the former McCormick estate.  The owners’ life-long love affair with Italy inspired this treasure of Italian art and gardens. From the moment you enter the property, you feel transported to Tuscany.  Formal Italian gardens mirror the style of the home.  The front courtyard reflects the owners’ passion for Tuscan landscape.  The intent of this design was to be true to the Italian ideal. The tradition of the home is enhanced by the use of authentic materials, old-world craftsmanship and finishes indigenous to old Italy while paying tribute to the surrounding architecture of the neighborhood.
