When Warren Mongillo and Steve Tingas, of Vantage Partners, decided to build Tuscany Village Townhomes, they knew what they wanted. As stated by the architect, Andrew Woodward, “When Warren came to us to discuss his new townhome development, he came with sketches and ideas. He wanted up-scale, high-end Tuscan-styled homes with a modern twist on the interiors.” From these ideas and sketches, we designed the plans for Tuscany Village. The exteriors’ Italian character was created with details including brick, stone and Venetian plaster, rough-sawn wood, carriage-style garage doors, and Juliette balconies.
One of Vantage Partners’ unique ideas for the interior space was an oval opening that spanned up through multiple floors. Woodward looked all over to see what had been done previously similar to that. He found two-story openings and two-story kitchens, but could not find anywhere a three-story kitchen opening. This was something never before seen. As stated by the architect, “This feature puts the kitchen at the center of the interior space.” A curved staircase that wraps around allowed for the curved opening below. This particular home plan sells quickly, as soon as one is completed and available.
In addition to the curved staircase that creates the oval opening above the kitchen, the homes are designed with curved corners, special ceiling details and medallions, and beautiful niches, all to add to the Italian atmosphere. According to the architect, “Warren set a high bar for us. He had very high-end expectations and the development shows it.” Woodward adds, “Warren and Steve do not cut corners. Normally a builder will put a regular door in a curved wall; Vantage Partners had curved doors custom-made for the curved walls.”
