Tuscan Cliffs to open today

At the end of the day when it’s time to relax and recharge, your home is your refuge. It’s the place you’ve chosen to unwind or entertain, to share or seek solitude. It should be a place of peace and beauty that enhances your life; of style and character that expresses who you are. It should be at Tuscan Cliffs.

The three two-story home designs offered at Tuscan Cliffs are the result of classic architecture that’s been regenerated for our time. Updated for the millennium, these plans possess a timeless familiarity woven into an updated contemporary style.

“These homes are truly captivating,” said sales agent Julia Giordani. “While the Tuscan-influence is clear, more impressive is how the designs offer a new perspective — drawing the best elements from both architectural styles while creating an easy-living environment that is at once elegant and romantic, yet also dynamic and chic.”

“And the setting is really quite special. Lush, green and picturesque, in an area that’s easily accessible, but secluded from the rush of the city,” she said. “Near enough to all you need in town, but with a real sense of a quiet, personal place.”

Located within the Southern Highlands, a master-planned community, they range from 4,256 to nearly 5,000 square feet. Tuscan Cliffs offers a multitude of lifestyle configurations that spark the imagination.

Buyers can choose up to six bedrooms with 6½ baths, making each home wholly their own by adding a multigenerational suite, lofts and bonus rooms or a cigar/wine room, wet bar, or a classic Italian loggia.

Plan One offers as many as five bedrooms and 4½ baths, and flows into a spacious entry with a interior courtyard garden, plus a covered loggia. The ground floor showcases the courtyard features at every turn — from the expansive kitchen and living areas, through the esplanade to the master suite secluded in its own first-level wing.

A multigenerational suite on the first level with a covered porch is available, as well as split two- and one-car garages, with a bedroom with two optional bonus rooms above.

Plan Two includes a ground level configuration that is perfect for casual living and entertaining. Complemented with a welcoming bar and generous kitchen space, this entire portion of the home is flooded with natural light that blends seamlessly with access to a relaxing covered loggia.

Separate formal dining and an optional cigar/wine room further add to the entertainment value, while a single bedroom suite is found on the first floor.

Upstairs, the spacious master suite allows views across the entire rear of the home, and includes a covered balcony and a master closet.

As many as three more bedrooms are found on the upper level with options for a fifth bedroom, fifth bath and a bonus room.

The third of these inspired designs has been masterfully crafted for functionality and comfort, with a nod toward a relaxed European way of life in as many as six bedrooms and 6½ baths. A foyer leads you to separate dining and living areas and to a great room that vaults through the height of the second level.

These main living spaces, as well as the downstairs master suite and sitting area, open onto a sizeable covered loggia, complete with optional fireplace and multislide glass doors, increasing the atmosphere of a merged indoor/outdoor environment. Vaulted ceilings and a front balcony enhance this unique architectural style on both levels.

The setting for this exclusive neighborhood is as breathtaking as it is secluded. Panoramic views from the model homes allow you a visual sweep from one end of the valley to the other, while the green surroundings of landscape and water features perfectly complement every element of these designs.

To visit Tuscan Cliffs, exit Interstate 15 south at Southern Highlands and head west. Turn left on Stonewater Lane where you’ll find the entry gate on the right.
