The three and four-bedroom villas come standard with top-of-the-line custom estate features such as Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, exotic stone countertops, natural stone and marble floors, custom cabinetry, custom hand-forged iron stair railing, 9’ ceilings in second story,  a full masonry fireplace, a private two or three-car garage, a game room with a mini bar, professionally designed walk-in closets, his and hers bathroom vanities, a Jacuzzi bathtub in the master bathroom and a climate controlled wine room.

All 12 estate villas are being built at once with completion expected in late 2014.

Buyers took notice of our value-driven approach and our rapid sales success proves it was the right decision.”
