Life in the fast lane calls for an exit - the one that leads to a calming of the soul fed by the strength of the mountains. No two families are alike, no two getaways are alike, but the yearning for such a refuge is the same. Villa Cascata offers such a refuge.
Angled toward the 75-foot waterfall named Highlands Falls this graceful home communes with nature. With its front toward the manicured English garden and its back to the natural waterfall, this home provides an oasis of tranquility. Completely updated in a shower of affection, the spirit of this house evokes an ambiance of luxury combined with a touch of playfulness.
The generous rooms offer several gathering areas for intimate conversations and lively debates. The floor-to-ceiling windows bathe the dining room with light overlooking the falling waters. Large decks on both levels expand the space for entertaining. The gourmet kitchen is open to the cozy hearth room with fireplace. A private library is on one side of the home and the enticing master suite with his and her baths sits on the opposite wing.
The terrace level has a second great room with antique heart pine floors and another fireplace. The three large guest suites are complete with ensuite baths. The three-car garage and a large recreational room provide plenty of storage and room for grand-kids to play.
