Painstakingly created with handcrafted, reclaimed, and imported European materials and designfrom the expansive cobblestone piazza, to the elegant salon hosting an authentic Bluthner grand pianothis romantic palazzo is the dream home for any lover of Italywhether through your heritage or your soul. More than a home, Signal Tree is an homage to the exquisite warmth and history of Italia -built to evoke a borgo -an Italian hilltop village that expanded over centuries, merging buildings with diverse uses and architectural styles into a single luxurious home. As you approach the front of the property, cruising over ancient, repurposed cobbles, you pass through massive wrought-iron gates, bringing your new palazzo into view -a striking, unequaled gem -entirely custom built, the stuff of fantasies.

Crossing the threshold of your entry hall, you are greeted by ancient terra cotta tile, set in the pattern of Cerasi Chapel of Santa Maria del Popolo church in Rome. Look closely at the tile--you will see the handprints of the artisans who crafted them centuries ago, preserved in the clay, creating a rich, inimitable patina. The stately two-story hall features stencils from the gracious homes lining the enchanting canals of Venice. To your right, the dining roomyou will feel like you are dining al fresco any time of the yearlook up to see the whimsical coffered ceiling containing a hand-painted vista of fluffy white clouds in a clear blue sky. To the left, the living room, featuring the first of four wood-burning fireplaces with a 500-year-old Italian volcanic stone mantle, and a flexible space containing the 8-foot concert piano -and perfect acoustics -to host performances for up to 120 guests. For the chef in the family, a warm, rustic-style kitchen -housing the most modern professional grade appliances -leading to an eight person breakfast area, and on to a screened in porch, complete with fireplace. On to the two-story family room with a quaint, rebuilt antique woodstove. Opposite is the two-story library, evoking the famous libraries of Europe, with cozy reading room, and plentiful built-in bookcases. Lest you need a glass of Barolo while you read, the area connects to a wet bar with all the amenities.
