$2.7M buys your own Italianate villa in Kennesaw

You don’t need to move abroad to experience exotic architecture. You just need $2.7 million and a willingness to move to Kennesaw. 

Right now the Villa de Cielo is one sale. Its 7,958 square feet live on a massive 20-acre estate that includes “Tuscan-like fields” and a lake. 

The house itself was built from materials flown in from all over the world to create a blended Old and New World style. The house has hand-chipped limestone exteriors with hand-flashed-fired terra cotta clay shingles. 

Being handmade seems to have been important to the home’s builders, as it also features hand-carved mahogany doors, solid walnut hand-crafted stairs and cabinetry and hand-painted frescos and venetian plaster walls. 

Simply put, you’ll find few houses like this on sale in Atlanta. Check out the gallery for more photos and the full listing for more information.
