Welcoming Vercelli brings Tuscany home

Looking at the tile, stucco and overall details of the Vercelli, you might imagine you’ve been transported to Tuscany. This Mediterranean-style villa is clearly evocative of sunny climates. A fountain and graceful wooden arbor welcomes you as you walk under a stucco arched entry at the front porch.

Inside, the Vercelli continues to amaze. Arched openings lead off of the foyer into the dining room and combination gathering room/kitchen.
Both the cooking and dining areas have unique features. When a meal requires just the right wine, the host or hostess needn’t go far. An arch-top door in the dining room leads into a large wine cellar with a barrel-vaulted ceiling.

And in the kitchen, the wood-burning pizza and bread oven has equal billing with the modern gas range and oven next to it. The extra-long work island boasts a veggie sink and is rimmed on one side by a raised eating counter. Two large walk-ins-pantry and cooler-are nearby.

Light spills in through windows along the rear wall. Arched openings on both sides of the free-standing wood stove lead into a large play room with built-in storage cabinets. A gas fireplace could be installed here, if desired.

The Vercelli’s owners’ suite has a fireplace along with two walk-in closets, one double the size of the other. Other luxuries include: a spa tub, walk-in shower, private toilet, dual vanity, and direct access to a private patio with a hot tub.

A guest suite is also on the lower level. Upstairs, three vaulted bedrooms share a large central bathroom. The balcony that overlooks the foyer and gathering space leads to two more spacious rooms: a vaulted theater/exercise room, and a roomy library/office.

Visit AssociatedDesigns.com for more information or to search our home plans. A review plan of the Vercelli 30-491, including floor plans, elevations, section, and artist’s conception, can be purchased for $25. Our home plan catalog, featuring more than 550 home plans, costs $15. Both are available online, by mail or phone. Add $5 s/h.
