Italian Escape

What is Tuscan architecture? The names of various architectural styles often get thrown around with little knowledge on what the authenticity of those styles actually looks like. Originating in the Italian region of Tuscany, this style of architecture when designed accurately is a stunning combination of natural materials and Old World craftsmanship. Richly textured stones, wooden beams, hand-carved finishes and warm hues are to be expected.

A sense of romanticism is felt from the immense attention to detail found in a Tuscan home.

One of the latest Southern Highlands’ homes to hit the market, 2 Olympia Hills, is a beautiful example of Tuscan design. Exquisitely executed, this home embodies all elements of Old World Europe in a modern livable way. The layout is centered around a stunning interior courtyard and includes long hallways that are lined with wood-framed portrait windows to showcase the brightly colored garden.

Large archways, hand-carved Knotty Alder wood finishes, and elegant mosaics can be found throughout. The feelings evoked by this home take you far from Las Vegas and into a dreamy Italian escape.

There is something to be appreciated at every corner of this nearly 10,000 square foot home. The main part of the property includes 5 bedroom suites each with its own balcony/patio, as well as 2 detached casitas.

The kitchen is rich with stone and stunning cabinetry, as is the entire home, and the fireplaces throughout are each uniquely detailed. There is a second family with a full kitchenette that is great for entertaining on game day or gathering around on movie night.

The property is situated on the Southern Highlands’ golf course with immense privacy, beautiful landscaping and Strip views that twinkle in the distance. Artistically designed, the pool, spa and surrounding outdoor spaces are truly picturesque. Additionally, the community clubhouse with gym, spa, a restaurant and more is only a 5-minute walk down the road.

If modern and contemporary homes feel cold to you, rest assured this property is the exact opposite. Inside and out, the design stays true to the mystique farmhouses found throughout the rolling hills of Tuscany. The beautifully blended palate of warm colors and decadent fixtures are sure to please.
