'Villa Della Pace' Boasts Picturesque Pool and Panoramas in Kentfield, Calif. (House of the Day)


A second #housepornthurs victory goes to @PacUnion (Pacific Union International) for tweeting this mind-blowing California villa. The runner-up was a listing submitted by @Ryan_Estately (of the Estately blog).

Perched over Phoenix Lake and Mt. Tamalpais, "Villa Della Pace," listed for $11.495 million, boasts jaw-dropping views of a rolling swath of hills and parkland in Kentfield, Calif. From stone terraces and manicured lawns to radiant gardens and outdoor fireplace, the home's exquisite landscaping packs quite the punch.

But the villa's pool takes the cake: Set beneath an ivy-draped terrace and nestled into a flagstone-checkered lawn, it seems to practically float over the countryside that sweeps out before it.

The interior features limestone and hardwood floors, soaring ceilings, touches of granite and floor-to-ceiling windows. And the family room opens onto a covered terrace that overlooks the pool, offering stunning panoramas of the home's intoxicating environs.

As if that weren't enough, the 2.25-acre residence also has a guesthouse that's brand-new. It shares the main home's villa-style design and has a wraparound deck with glass railings.

Pacific Union International has the listing. Like what you see? Have a look at @PacUnion's other #housepornthurs winner.
