Tuscanpines, our award winning villa is situated on the edge of Tuscan Hills. It has limited through traffic because it is a small gated community. The villa is a deceptively spacious 5 bedroom single storey property and affords wonderful views to the rear (south) out onto an area of pine trees. Our guests experience greater privacy than provided by the majority of properties within the community as there is a full plot's width (approx. 40ft) between our villa and the next one to its right hand side and it has mature hedges on all three sides of the pool deck.

Great American Homes describe our villa as having 2893 sq.ft. under roof. This is made up of a living space of 2228 sq.ft; a garage (games room) of 447 sq.ft; a lanai (covered patio area) of 171 sq.ft. and a covered front entrance of 47 sq.ft. In addition to this the internal screened pool area is 721 sq.ft.

The villa is filled with colourful silk flowers and has been decorated and furnished to an extremely high standard. We believe we have succeeded in conveying a bright, happy, Floridian feeling for our guests. That is certainly what we wanted to experience and we hope you do to.

There is a covered entrance at the front of the villa to protect guests from the elements whilst they open the lock box on the wall in order to obtain the front door key and open the villa.

Inside the foyer is a part tiled and carpeted floor protected by a door mat and rug.

The foyer is furnished with a shoe rack for the benefit of guests and a cottage style sideboard incorporating a wine rack. The sideboard displays information folders provided by our management company as well as our own welcome pack which helps you get to know our villa and the local area. The sideboard also has a guest book which we have provided to encourage your feedback.

The foyer is decorated with a floor standing silk plant and two pictures which introduce you to the Floridian theme of our villa.

You will notice that all wall switches are labelled for your convenience.

Ambient light is provided by a table lamp found on the sideboard. During the day natural light is provided by an ornate semi-circular window above the front door and by a vertical glass panelled area beside it. The panel has been covered with an opaque film for your privacy and security.
