“Il Paradiso began as a total remodel of an existing contemporary home. The design is a reverential recreation of the Casino at Villa Farnese in Caprarola, Italy – considered the best examples of its type. Bryant Design Studio collaborated in the design and executed all aspects of the exterior and interior architecture, design and detailing. The primary challenges were to site a 55-foot pool, necessitating massive walls to retain the terrace, resulting in a stunning vista to the pool and ocean beyond and carving of a new entry and driveway into an extreme slope and an existing Oak grove.”
Paradiso, being the third and concluding part of Dante’s Divine Comedy, depicts heaven. Il Paradiso creates its own piece of heaven. The authenticity of scale, proportion and detail is apparent upon entering the grounds up a stone paved drive through oak and olive groves to the large Motor Court, a large water feature reflecting off the glass and iron entry doors invite you in to stay
Inside vaulted ceilings, Venetian chandeliers, stone floors, mantels & Tuscan columns evoke the splendid detail of Renaissance Italy. The Villa was designed to look and feel as though it reigned supreme for generations of fortunate owners.
