A bit of Italy, in the form of a Tuscan-style villa in Quiogue, is on the market for $8.95 million. The owners had the house, built in 2005, designed to reflect their love of all things Italian, says Evan Kulman, listing agent with Sandy Beuerlein of The Corcoran Group.
The 8,500-square-foot stone and terra-cotta hued stucco home, complete with red tile roof, has many Italian architectural details, including a loggia-style outdoor dining and living area with a fireplace. It can be accessed through arched wood and glass doors from the eat-in kitchen, formal dining room and library.
A terrace, off the second-floor master bedroom, overlooks a courtyard with gunite in-ground pool and pool house. There are eight bedrooms, seven bathrooms and two half-baths. Following Italian tradition, most of the rooms face the courtyard.
Other features include a paneled library, travertine marble floors, four interior fireplaces and a stone-and-brick wine cellar with tasting room. The 2.15-acre property comes with a two-bedroom cottage, a tennis court and detached, two-car garage.
