Villa di Tutti Santi - Luxury Home For Sale

by Nate Martinez

Villa di Tutti Santi - Luxury Home For Sale

Villa di Tutti Santi lives up to its meaning, “home of all Saints,” as this Italian-inspired villa truly speaks to both the mind and spirit. It elevates your senses and takes you to a different time and place, where art and design come together to create a space of drama, light and function.

Welcome to the private community of La Strada Del Lago, located in north Peoria, where twelve highly designed and unique homes are nestled behind the security gates, including this spectacular home. True to its Italian heritage, the front courtyard of Villa de Tutti Santi is surrounded by a privacy wall and second security gate. Here, you will discover one of the finest luxury homes in the West Valley. 

The award-winning custom-designed front door sets the stage for all that is to come.  Inside, you’ll step into a large, formal foyer featuring a twenty-one foot ceiling that’s framed by custom crown molding. It also serves as the backdrop for a crystal chandelier that glimmers with the sparkling lead crystals of Preciosa crystal. Like the many chandeliers and sconces throughout the home, this special piece was designed and imported from the Czech Republic. But no doubt the focal point of this welcoming hall is the spiral staircase with the upstairs balcony. Custom designed to match the front door, this iron railing is accented by a solid brass hand rail to compliment that incredible chandelier.

To the left of the grand foyer, you will find the library. True to its heritage, this quiet space features maple wood paneling, alder wood beams and cabinetry, and a remote-controlled fireplace to create warm light by which to read. This is truly a library that can be enjoyed by any level of reading enthusiast.

To the right of the grand foyer stands the formal dining room. This luxurious dining space features uniquely designed walls to dramatic reflect the light of the crystal chandelier and sconces, while the alder paneled ceiling above creates an intimacy that is typically reserved for only the most exclusive dining experiences. But with space to comfortably seat sixteen or more people, the only limitation to the size of your dinner party is your imagination.

Like the entry ways to the library and dining room, the arches throughout the home are enriched by hand-trimmed alder wood treatments that wrap around each one. You’ll also discover subtle details true to the home’s Italian lineage, such as custom-painted ceiling domes in soft shades of gold or recessed niches perfect for displaying those special pieces of art.

Continue roaming the hallways of the spacious first level and you’ll also discover the formal living room; one of three master retreats in the main house; and, of course, a gourmet kitchen that any professional chef or amateur cook would envy. Notice the hand-carved vent hood over the eight-burner gas cooktop, the hand-carved cabinets on the nine foot long kitchen island or the hand-tooled cabinetry on the many other cabinets and drawers. All are host to a quartz countertop that beautifully blends the old world features with new amenities.

And, as you would expect in a home of this caliber, Wolf appliances and Subzero refrigerator and wine cooler are the mainstay. No Italian villa would be complete without a built-in cappuccino machine, double ovens and for those more modern needs, double microwaves. From the kitchen you can enjoy the spacious family room where indoor and outdoor space becomes one with the help of retractable pocket doors that lead you into another world

Not to be outdone by the magnitude of the interior of this home, the back yard of this palacious spread is nothing short of impressive. Hosting two lounging cabanas, a full outdoor kitchen, spacious main house patio, oversized pool and lush vegetation, this is no ordinary backyard. This is life in a resort-like setting. The total property consists of 1.57 acres and all is lushly landscaped and completely fenced for maximum privacy.

Also enjoying the views of this incredible, lush setting is a private guest cottage, featuring a separate living room, large separate bedroom and a luxurious bath with a jetted tub and separate shower. This is no ordinary guest space. This is living space.

The same can be said of the three master suites in the main house - each not only features sitting spaces, amazing views of the grounds from their private decks or patio, en-suite bathrooms with soaker tubs and separate showers. Like all the rooms throughout this special home, the fine details are seen in the crown-molding, the specially designed paint schemes to complement each room’s theme, and custom-made draperies and sheers to beautifully frame large windows. It’s these features and so many others that truly make Villa di Tutti Santi a home where mind and spirit come together.

by Nate Martinez

Located in the exclusive gated community of Copper Creek Estates, this one-of-a-kind custom home is sitting on well-over an acre lot with amenities that you just don’t find every day. Oozing with old world charm, you’ll be led by brick pavers to the rustic courtyard which opens to the formal dining and family rooms with sliding glass pocket doors.


With 12,303 square feet there is quite literally something for every need you can think of. From the craft room, complete with built-in cabinets, granite counters and sink station…to the entertainer’s delight play room…to the elegantly designed library…to the finished basement which has an Irish Pub Style bar with green buffed onyx counters, game room and private movie theater…and that is just for starters.


It’s obvious at first glance, that this home screams posh style and a taste for quality, especially when it comes to good eats. The gourmet kitchen will not disappoint your demanding culinary needs, with premium Wolf Ovens, 6 gas burner range complete with grill and a built-in subzero refrigerator and freezer. Oh but wait, those are just the practical features – let’s not forget about the sinfully gorgeous cabinetry in two different woods, plus a copper stamped backsplash, two islands, one with Brazilian Walnut Wood and the other with granite and convenient breakfast bar seating. The kitchen design also includes a formal dining room, Butler’s pantry and a cozy breakfast nook.


With 8 bedrooms and 9 ½ baths, throughout the home is floor to ceiling faux paint and each room has its own elevation and hand-painted accents. The seller spared no expense with 7,500 square feet of premium wood floors which are ¾ inch thick and 7 ¾ inches wide. Other interior amenities include, wood beamed ceilings, custom window treatments, upgraded lighting package, Boveda ceilings and a secondary wet bar on the main floor with gold and white onyx polished counters and wood trim.

Although, it may feel a bit like sensory overload, we have yet to tour the master’s quarters. Remnant of a setting in an upscale resort, this master retreat will leave your taste buds salivating. Rich, comforting tones and elegant faux paint combined with quality craftsmanship at every turn, you’ll also appreciate the functionality and solid design. The features include a private laundry room, jetted soaking tub, his-and-hers vanities, built-in closet storage space galore and a walk-in shower that is to die for. Relaxing after a long day is made easy with a private wet bar and a two-way fireplace which gives you the option of lounging in the sitting area or bedside.

Accessible from the master suite is the covered patio…which could be quiet arguably the best patio this side of the Mississippi. Overlooking the pool and spa, the patio floor is stone and the ceilings made of dark wood. The pillars and walls are adorned with real stone, which gives this patio the look and feel of a vintage countryside villa in Italy.


The massive rock waterfall over the heated saltwater pool laps into a negative edge feature which bauds well with the separate spa and sunken fire pit seating area. Extensive stone and brick accent the lush landscaping. It is true that the magnificent pool is the focal point of the backyard, but beyond that is the lush greens that make up the rest of the grounds. With 48,454 square feet of land, there is a putting green and large open grassy space suitable for a multitude of outdoor activities.

Also within the grounds of Bellissima Casa da Sogno is plenty of parking to meet your sports and recreation needs and a full guest house with a separate front entrance. There is room for four vehicles plus an RV garage and loads of additional storage space. And the one bedroom, one bath guest house has a fully functional kitchen and living area plus access through the garage.


If you are worried about your need for technology or your carbon foot print, don’t be. Designed to be a SMART Home, there are five air conditioning units and a “pre-cooled” system that provides instant comfort and the utmost energy efficiency. With just one remote, everything is controlled and accessible via a computer or television…programming the pool, lights or sound is literally a click away with this state-of-the-art home system.

Translated to English, Bellissima Casa da Sogno means “beautiful dream home”…sort of has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? For a private tour and the chance to purchase one of Peoria’s exclusive custom estates, please contact me today. This is a rare opportunity that simply will not last long.
