Sited on a woodsy four-acre plot, the red-roofed mansion offers all the hallmarks of a genuine Italian country estate. Corinthian columns support endless balconies, while custom millwork lines its interior under 18-foot-high ceilings. Outside is a piazza that offers a pool, outdoor kitchen and fireplace.

Some of the home's additional luxuries: guest cottage, media room and fitness center.

Kathryn Bateman of Heritage House Sotheby's International Realty has the listing.
