7 Faraway Place Greenville SC 29615 | 1463374

The Villa on Faraway Place is an Italian-styled home based on architecture found in the north of Italy, particularly the Veneto region, near the southern part of Lago de Garda and the village of Lazise. Inspiration is heavily drawn from homes in this area of the Cangrande of Verona. A large circular driveway of pavers and dimpled concrete greet you at the Villa’s entry. A terraced fountain inside the circle welcomes your arrival. The Villa’s exterior is stucco with hewn timber trim and washed vanishing stone accents with an internal courtyard centered around a small saltwater plunge pool, and surrounding deck of tiled concrete pavers. Capping the courtyard is an octagonal screened porch with a flagstone floor and arched column portico as a breezeway between the master suite and the gathering/living room. The portico has a dimpled concrete floor and column-bounded arches stepping down into the courtyard and backyard. At the back of the portico near the screened porch is an outdoor cooking grill. Columns, arched windows with stucco embossings and stone lentils accentuate the Villa’s architecture. Dark bronze metal highlights and trim add to the warmth built-in to this retreat. Roofing is a clay-tile look architectural shingle with bronze metal accent sections. The Villa entry is porched with a flagstone floor, a hammered copper threshold and a large hand-carved arched mahogany double-door into a double groin vaulted foyer – beginning an arched theme throughout. A gallery across the front of the courtyard leads to the east-wing to the kitchen, dining and gathering/living areas. A butler’s pantry and double-groined vault wine cellar are at the edges of the east wing along with a utility room, access to the garage and the free room over the garage.

Access to the octagonal screened porch at one end of the portico is from the gathering/living room. A hall from the gallery to the west wing brings you past the powder room to two bedrooms and the master suite.
