In the middle of Indian Hill, there’s an Italian-inspired mansion you’ll never want to leave. The secluded property is hidden behind a set of gated entrances, a driveway made from imported pebbles, and a fountain in the center.
The stucco-constructed home boasts an impressive Italian aesthetic, atypical from homes built in the Midwest. Symmetrical in the front, there’s a six-car garage with heated floors and a high ceiling space to accommodate a basketball court. The entrance resembles the movie home from The Holiday with black-pane windows contrasted with light stucco, a dark front door, and a copper-tile roof.
Inside there are six bedrooms (each with an en suite bath and laundry), eight full bathrooms, and three half baths with varied styles. When you walk in, even the entrance is impressive with heated Italian stone and a chestnut wood-panel wall with a doorway leading to the living space. Here, the stylish room features pearl subway tile with built-in open shelving, high ceilings, and a wall of windows offering a glimpse out front.
Nearby, the dining room-slash-kitchen includes similar elements with a wide open floor plan. Floor-to-ceiling windows brighten the whole space, but the kitchen might be the star of show. A focal point is the La Cornue stove that acts as an island with eight burners, three ovens, and a steamer, plus a massive stainless hood above. The kitchen includes other high-end stainless appliances like the Subzero freezer. Like the living room, there’s subway tile on the walls and ceiling, a fireplace, and what we now think is a “must have” in all homes: a swing! The pantry is massive with its own fridge, sink, and glass cabinets elegantly displaying dishes.
A conservatory channels more Italian vibes with multicolored tiles, built-in seating, and a fountain in the middle of the space with loads of light where house plants will thrive. There’s also a sunroom with coffered ceilings and skylights perfect for a year-round entertaining space with a walkout and a library with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. If that isn’t enough entertaining space for the hosting guru, there’s also a chic theater with wood beams, tiered seating, and wood plank floors.
Each of the bedrooms are on the second floor, including the master. A little different from the first floor style, the main bedroom has wood walls, motorized shades, two walk-in closets, and a laundry room. But the master bath is about as luxe as you can get. Think bronze soaking tub, limestone flooring, a dreamy shower space with three showerheads, and a fireplace; you’ll never want to leave.
The rest of the bedrooms are unique with different elements in each, like hand painted tile, beamed ceilings, and stone brick walls. The lower level is basically an extension of the house with ornate details and walkout to the pool, which boasts a fire pit with seating, pizza oven, kitchenette, a pergola trellis, and a covered patio.
