Casa dei Sogni means house of dreams, and that is what has been achieved.
The brief for this home was to create an Italian villa.
The exterior is dominated by the half pipe roof tiles imported from Europe. Multiple columns, wrought iron balustrade, copper guttering, an intricate chimney give the house the unmistakable feel of continental Europe.
Marble stairs lead you to double wrought iron entrance doors. The doors lead into the 6.5 metre entrance tower with an arched window giving visitors just a glimpse of what awaits in the alfresco and courtyard beyond. The floors are large marble tiles which feature throughout.
The entrance is flanked by two home offices. The larger having four metre coffered ceilings and external feature fish pond. From this point you enter the impressive living area with decorative four metre ceilings. Handmade wrought iron chandeliers along with moulded archway columns add to the home’s style. Clerestory windows naturally light and ventilate. The living opens onto a spacious covered alfresco. The alfresco has detailed skylights. This in turn overlooks the mosaic tiled pool and spa; all to be enjoyed from the separate pool hut with its own chandelier and decorative ceiling.
