A gated drive ascends through manicured lawns and lush, landscaped grounds in the hills of Southampton to arrive at Villa Romantica, a magnificent residence in a completely private setting. Designed with European sensibility and a contemporary aesthetic based on classical principles by architect Peter Wrangel, attention has been paid to every single detail of this extraordinary home, and no expense was spared. Masterfully constructed by builder Richard Flood of OPH and designed indoors and out by Charles Pavarini III, the home surrounds you with quality and luxury. An eclectic mix of custom, modern, traditional, designer and antique decor complements each room. Furnishings by Dorothy Draper & Company add bright, exuberant color. Enter to a gracious foyer, from which a staircase of custom forged iron with brass and oak railings ascends to the second floor. Principal rooms are spacious and bright, with high ceilings and large windows. The elegantly appointed living room features wide plank oak flooring, a fireplace and large windows. Through an arched doorway is the exquisite formal dining room. The spacious eat-in chef’s kitchen, by St. Charles of New York, is well equipped and includes a La Cornue range with beautifully detailed custom hood, paneled Sub-Zero refrigerator and wine cooler, a large central island with seating, and skylight above, Brazilian granite countertops and a light-filled breakfast area. French doors open from these three principal rooms to a spacious stone terrace overlooking the grounds and providing seating and dining areas for al fresco enjoyment. The sublime master suite is a haven of serenity. The light-filled bedroom offers seating, a sumptuous bath with custom cabinetry and vanity, skylight, custom dressing table, and glass-doored shower with bench. Four additional bedroom suites are all tastefully appointed, each themed differently and all with luxurious baths. From the rear terrace, stairs descend past stone retaining walls of consummate artistry to beautiful grounds designed by landscape architect Michael Spitzer, surrounding a heated gunite pool and architecturally stunning pool house featuring a bath with marble vanity and full kitchen with Brazilian granite counters. Outdoor seating and dining areas are situated under romantic vine-covered arbors on either side of the pool house. A separate cottage provides a gym on the main level, second floor studio with full bath, and room for a small car. Offered for the first time, this home is created with meticulous taste by the owner and completed to the highest standards.
