Welcome to Villa San Angelo, a Palladian-inspired villa designed by Robert Dame and completed in 2009. The exterior features Austin limestone; stucco, copper gutters and chimney caps; a custom-blend clay tile roof fired for an "old-world” look; copper gas lanterns; a front-door camera security system; and an oversized three-car garage. Interiors offer reclaimed 18th- and 19th- century architectural elements; “Old Plaster” wall finishes by Jay Iarussi; reclaimed hardwood and French limestone floors; and rough-hewn ceiling beams. The living and family room have gas-log fireplaces with French 19th-century mantles. The dining room has a limestone floor and walls, a vaulted ceiling, and arched mahogany French doors overlooking a repurposed 18th-century stone trough/fountain. A vestibule adjoining the living room opens into an impressive library with oak book/media/display cases. The main gathering kitchen has professional-grade Viking appliances; a Shaw sink; granite countertops; and Iarussi cabinet finishes. A separate, full catering kitchen offers a reclaimed Chicago Brick barreled ceiling, and a wine vault offers wine storage, stone tasting shelf, and a pair of 18-century entry doors. Accessible by staircase and elevator, the second floor offers a luxurious master suite, three additional bedrooms, a media room, and an art studio. The master bedroom has a beamed and vaulted ceiling; an 18th-century limestone fireplace mantle; alder wood cabinetry; surround-sound system; and a lavish, spa-inspired, marble-clad bath. Outdoor living includes a spacious loggia with an antique-wood fireplace mantle and gas log fireplace; full summer kitchen; and a half-bath with 18th-century marble sink and deck. The one-bedroom casita includes a kitchenette, walk-in closet, and full bath. Additional outdoor amenities include a dark-bottomed pool and spa; professional landscaping and tree and path lighting; and a brick staircase from the pool area up to the master balcony.
