This beautiful Tuscan inspired home overlooks the ponds at Walden Preserve, with Pikes Peak as a magnificent backdrop. Combining Old World charm with modern amenities, this home has the best to offer of both worlds- timeless comfort and beauty with high end appliances, metal clad wood windows, climate control and home automation. This five bedroom, four and a half bath home with dramatic three story tower has the charm of times past, but the comfort, energy efficiency, and quality provided by using the best building materials and technology of today. Enter through the gatehouse, into the cobblestone courtyard and listen to the cascading water fountain, as you continue through a custom cherry front door lit by an authentic gas lamp. Pass through the arched openings of the foyer, into the great room, to see the beauty of Colorado through two stories of glass, and feel the warmth of a stunning stone fireplace and timbered beam ceiling. Enter the adjoining gourmet kitchen filled with custom cabinetry, separate baking pantry, Thermador appliances, and a hand-crafted, copper range hood, you’ll see why this home truly has the best of both worlds! Move outside to the covered deck to enjoy the outdoor living, or continue downstairs to see the custom wet bar, wine vault, gym, and dry sauna. Come see why we want you to “live the custom dream”!

About the Interior Design of the Home:
Kirella Homes and Kemper Design Studio partnered to bring you this quintessential Tuscan farmhouse. They built upon the owners' recollections of Tuscan sunlight, brilliant green and purple-hued vineyards and the natural surroundings of timber, stone and stucco. Guests feel a warm hug entering the loggia with beautiful Venetian plastered groin vault ceiling and terra cotta tile flooring. A grand wrought-iron staircase with Juliette balcony sets the stage for rustic forged iron lighting throughout. The spacious open floorplan allows one to appreciate rustic wooden beams traversing across to the immense European stone fireplace, and panoramic windows granting breathtaking views of Front Range and Pikes Peak. For every chef's dream, a dramatic granite-topped island brings your attention to the custom copper hood, leading you to the walk-in baker's pantry, retaining the charm of Italy with two-toned cabinetry, tumbled travertine and a farmhouse sink. The main-level master, with rustic tongue and groove wood accent wall adjoins the euro-spa master bath. The clean-lined espresso cabinetry, along with the sparkle of chrome and mirrors, perfectly complement the natural tones of marble and stone. Continuing downstairs, the game-room showcases a striking bar under a grand stone arch. This walk-out boasts a sleek exercise suite. Kemper Design Studio places dreams into reality. Saluti!
