The client wanted a gracious, elegant and unique custom home for his large family. An eight-acre tract of undeveloped land was situated at the end of a cul-de-sac in a neighborhood of large homes.

The spacious dwelling welcomes visitors with a grand entry foyer with a monumental staircase and a domed ceiling overhead. The house has many large rooms with tray ceilings, barrel vaults, groin vaults, arches, and columned arcades throughout.

There is a large billiards room with a private patio, a grand dining room with an oval ceiling, and an extensive butlerís pantry. The custom kitchen is highly functional and art at the same time. There was also a target shooting range provided in the large, open basement.

The home also has several fireplaces, and rooms with interior and exterior balconies. The exterior is designed as a modern Italianate villa style. It is adorned with detailed stucco and stone finishes. It also has a grand columned entry, large arched windows, and French doors. A raised patio with a balustrade faces the rear yard and swimming pool.
