Villa Cascia is one of Huntingdon Valley's most beautifully designed homes, a tasteful nod to the builder's European heritage, carried out with a sense of proportion, elegance and quality rarely found in newer construction. Situated on 2.5 acres with views of the country club's lush, rolling greens to the front and professionally designed gardens and expansive lawn surrounding the sides and back of the property, the gated estate features courtyard-style parking finished in custom hardscaping and flanked by two sets of garages for a true, villa-like feel. Enter through immense, custom double doors into a residence grand scale with exquisite craftsmanship throughout. Limestone and wood floors, superb millwork and moldings, custom lighting for artwork, tall windows and numerous French doors to a full-length rear terrace demonstrate the workmanship and care put into this home's design and construction. The octagonal formal living room with double-height, coffered ceiling, fireplace with gorgeous surround and three sets of French door opening to the terrace is stunning. The home's main living spaces are open and sun-filled, including the formal dining area, finished with custom plasterwork and timeless Murano glass chandeliers. A family room with sunk-in wet bar, custom-built media center and fireplace opens to the kitchen. There, the home cook or pro chef will find ample workspace, a walk-in pantry, a six-burner gas range with pot filler, warming drawer, two new dishwashers, two wall ovens and Sub-Zero refrigeration plus additional drawer-style refrigerator and freezer. To facilitate entertaining on any scale, there's a butler's pantry with warming drawer and two drawer dishwashers, and chilled wine storage for 100 bottles to supplement the 1,400-bottle wine room on the lower level. Though Villa Cascia has an elevator to all floors, the main bedroom suite is on the first floor. This sumptuous retreat with a gas fireplace and French doors to the terrace provides two walk-in closets, a luggage closet, a fitness room and a fabulous bathroom finished in travertine with his and hers toilet rooms, a Bain Ultra soaking tub and cleverly designed seamless glass-enclosed steam shower with body jets and multiple shower heads. An all-concrete and travertine stairwell with custom wrought-iron railing leads to an expansive landing with four large guest bedrooms and three baths. A guest apartment with complete living quarters is located over one of the garages. Bellissimo!
