Diamond Custom Homes has announced the completion of a new estate home at 16615 Firenze Way in Talis Park.
The 16,047 total square foot private residence features architecture by Thomas Jones of WDG Architecture, interior design by Lou Shafran and Mark Vanagas of Pacifica Interior Design, custom cabinetry by EDGE, and landscape architecture by Christian Andrea of Architectural Land Design.
With an extensive use of columns and French doors in the front and rear of the residence, this palatial estate has a French country exterior with six bedrooms, six baths, three powder rooms, and an in-home theater.
Guests are welcomed into the home through a walk up entry from the paved half cylinder driveway. Perpendicular to the foyer is a gallery hallway running horizontally throughout the first floor living space. Almost immediately upon entry, the home boasts incredible views through the living room to the outside living area, which occupies the majority of the first floor space.
The outdoor living area has a full kitchen with gas grill and ample seating all under the covered lanai. The outdoor kitchen includes cabinetry from EDGE’s Danver outdoor kitchen line. The custom product is stainless steel construction with powder coating on the doors, drawers and panels. The exterior cabinetry is maintenance-free and will last many years.
The lanai opens to the luxurious pool design, with a sun shelf, daybed, spa, and reflective pool with stepping-stones. The outdoor living area is complete with a fire pit and powder room.
To the right of the living room sits the great room and kitchen with attached breakfast nook. Key features of the spacious kitchen include an oversized range hood, two center island bars, and double door refrigerator flanked on each side by built-in ovens.
An open dining room with attached wet bar is also located off the great room, with direct door access to the front terrace. On the opposite side, the great room offers six doors of access to the back porch. Left of the living room sits the fitness center and attached powder room, with its own six doors of access to the second back porch.
The right wing of the home features the two additional downstairs bedrooms both with en-suite baths and walk-in closets, in-home theater, and two garages each with space to accommodate two cars. The home theater hosts a 10-foot screen, island and snack bar. Homeowners are able to enter the home through the first garage, which opens into the utility space, mud area and powder room.
An elevator or staircase offers access to the second floor. A horizontal gallery hallway expands across the second floor living area as well, connecting the three upstairs bedrooms, lounge and loft. Each of these upstairs bedrooms is appointed with en-suite baths, closet spaces and balconets facing the street. A lounge sits between the bedrooms and hosts a wet bar, computer desk, and expansive balcony opening up to the front of the home. The staircase window has its own balconet, creating a symmetrical front elevation with four balconets with a large, expansive balcony in the center. The upstairs loft features a gas fireplace and balcony with views to the backyard.
“The construction of this custom-built residence epitomizes the Diamond process – prioritizing the details to build our client’s dream home,” said Diamond Custom Homes President Michael Diamond. “We are thrilled with how the project came together, and with our team’s ability to create an elegantly well-appointed and equally functional home for our clients.”
In compliance with Diamond’s superior construction methods, the estate has a concrete second floor rather than a traditional wood floor truss system, adding another luxurious and practical enhancement to the incredible estate. In addition, the entire second floor exterior wall is made of concrete block, which offers a safeguard against water intrusion and is particularly favorable for two-story homes in this climate.
