Hot Property Majestic Mediterranean atop plateau in desirable Westover

May 14, 2019 GMT

Situated atop a plateau in desirable Westover, this majestic Mediterranean home presents itself — stately, elegant and timeless.

Custom designed by renowned architect Rainer Schrom to mimic the beautiful and historic Roman Villas, this 53-year-old entertainer’s venue offers a sensational presence outside, and the European character and allure flows right through the door to enhance and color every room, according to co-listing agent Catherine Richardson of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty.

This exquisitely crafted, one-of-a-kind property has five bedrooms, four bathrooms and sits on a 1-acre lot. It presents a Utopian atmosphere tailor-made for upscale entertainment and everyday enjoyment, Richardson said.


“European influences and fine details accent the easy flow of specially accented rooms, lined with arched doorways, all of which open to the Tuscan-inspired courtyard, with luxurious heated pool, multi-colored, Southbay stone patio and lush and flowering perennial gardens,” Richardson said.

French, arched and carved front doors of imported Mahogany wood from South America open to a glamorous foyer of Travertine floors, Richardson said.

This inviting and airy entry gives way to an offering of gracious formal rooms, a chic and contemporary-styled living room with fireplace and a warm family room with exposed brick, French doors and a wood-burning fireplace.

The open dining room has archways, 200-bottle La Cave wine refrigerator, hardwood floors and imported Canadian wood windows.

It leads right to the gourmet kitchen, complete with a center island, a breakfast nook, smashing stone countertops and professional grade Thermador appliances. Coffered ceilings, custom lighting and glass tile make this the room in which you will love to create meals and enjoy eating them.

A romantic and indulgent main level master suite, complete with a Juliet balcony, separate nursery/office/exercise space, spectacular custom closet/dressing area, decadent bath with jetted tub and comfortable radiant heated floors, also overlooks the private pool sanctuary.

The main level of this show-stopping home also features another bedroom wing, boasting two accommodating bedrooms, a cozy den/library/music room, a full bath and access to separate private patio and fenced herb garden. This wing is ideal for overnight visitors, children or teens who might want to enjoy a sense of their own separate space.

Upstairs, you’ll find another loft-style bedroom area, which features two additional bedrooms, a deluxe, walk-in hallway closet and a newly renovated sparkling white and contemporary full bath. This space is ideal for sleeping, resting and getting away from the everyday family action.


The interior flow and glow of the fireplaces create an inviting and festive atmosphere in the colder months. In the summertime, you’ll be known for hosting the finest memorable poolside affairs in the beautiful moon-lit courtyard.

This home, which has stucco exterior siding, offers surprising ease of living and every day maintenance. The perennial gardens, well-designed landscape and fenced pool area allow for light and simple exterior upkeep. Inside, 12 inches of insulation, substantial wood Thermopane windows, propane gas heating fuel, zoned heating and cooling and a heated three-car garage ensure everyday comfort comes with a manageable budget.
