“Villa del Paradiso” — a Palladian-inspired masterpiece on Siesta Key with 120-ft. waterfront on Coconut Bayou. Lovingly designed and orchestrated by the owner, a connoisseur of architectural history and importer of European antiques, this residence surrounds you with beauty, comfort and an authenticity where every detail is finished to perfection. The entire structure is mathematically perfect, with each room reflecting geometric ratios between other rooms, establishing a sense of order, reason and balance. Gentle arches, intricate ceilings, artistic finishes and architectural accents attest to the home’s impressive nuances. The arched double front doors are three-inch thick Russian pine with hand-forged wrought iron hardware, all the light fixtures are repurposed antiques, the marble fireplace in the grand room is a faithful 17th century reproduction, the powder room sink is an 18th century Italian grotto fountain with clam shell basin, the coffered ceiling in the library is hand-carved plaster, and the hand-chiseled no-grout travertine flooring is set in different patterns to delineate spaces. Every room is designed so there is a beautiful view to the outside as well as an architecturally beautiful view inside.
