Bella Clancy Homes, Villa I and Villa II
Rancho Mirage - Bella Clancy Homes, Villa I and Villa II
Two lavish estates off Clancy Lane showcase two different sides of Italian-style architecture and design
Two Italian-style estates located across the street from each other offer 4,536 and 5,150 square feet in a private enclave of 20 similar homes. Villa I, in Old World Tuscan style, is less formal than Villa II, which is in a more classical Italian style, yet both are equally comfortable. Luxury treatments were used throughout the villas on the floors and walls, and custom ceiling treatments including handcrafted beams, triple crown molding, and coffers. Brick streets lead to each home, drawing you into their entry courtyards through impressive private porticos. Each has wonderful outdoor living spaces with full kitchen, dining, and living areas.
Villa I is enhanced with brick and wood extensively throughout. The 20-foot-high stone wall portico with hand-carved doors leads you past a courtyard with a stone fireplace and fountain. Off the courtyard, you enter the great room with its coffered ceilings and a wall of French doors overlooking a beautiful stone pool and a full outdoor kitchen. Hickory-wood floors add to the Old World charm. The chef’s kitchen features a butler’s pantry, walk-in wine cooler, and a large wet bar that divides the kitchen from the great room. The master suite is completely private in its own wing down a stone hall that is lined with built-ins and a cozy fireplace. This room is complete with a private patio with its own fountain, lending itself to serenity.
Villa II — with more formal designs, accents, and colors — also combines the best of desert living with several patios, a saltwater pool, and an outdoor kitchen/dining/living area. Inside, there is an expansive living and dining area off the open kitchen. A hobby and a media room are also part of the spacious design in this two-bedroom plus casita home. Indulgent amenities throughtout include a steam shower in the master bath, and a built-in 24-inch SubZero wine storage cooler and copper sinks in the kitchen. Several sets of floor-to-ceiling French doors open to reveal a patio or an enclosed atrium that features water fountains or waterfalls for nuture’s ambiance and soothing sounds.
