Imagine a Tuscan Villa with panoramic views from the downtown skyline to the Blue Ridge Mountains and dramatic sunsets. Now imagine this villa located in a gated neighborhood in Greenville with fabulous amenities and a stone’s throw from downtown. Welcome to 320 Sorono in the Villaggio of Montebello.
A custom, quality built home by J. Francis Builders. The attention to detail is evident as you enter through the lush landscaped courtyard with mature plants, columned front drive area and pass the waterfall and fountain to the custom mahogany front door. As you enter the view will be the first thing that catches your eye, along with the high end finishes. The foyer boasts Venetian plaster walls. The interior is warm and inviting with stained beamed ceilings, distressed hardwood floors and 10' ceilings on the main floor. The dining room is located just a few steps from the kitchen and great room for easy entertaining. Just off the Dining Room there is a wonderful wine niche with a custom wrought iron gate and wine cooler.
The great room is the heart of this home with a vaulted tongue and groove ceiling as well as wood beams, gas log fireplace with stone and a built-in cabinet. Lots of windows to let in the natural light (as well as the dynamic views). 320 Sorono is an entertainer's dream with a gourmet kitchen and breakfast area all combined for ease of living. The gourmet kitchen features custom stained cabinetry, beautiful granite counter tops, tile back splash, center island with breakfast bar, large walk in pantry and top to the line stainless steel appliances, including a convection oven, warming drawer, microwave, gas five burner cook-top, wine cooler & refrigerator. Just off the kitchen there is a huge laundry room with a computer desk area for a private home office. Also the custom cabinets washed in a warm glaze surround the washer/dryer area to close off the appliances from view. The back foyer area has a coat closet and access to the back covered grilling deck. The large powder room is conveniently located in this area and boasts a custom cabinet with a vessel sink. The upper two garages are steps away from the back foyer/mudroom area which is also finished with Venetian plaster and is steps away from the kitchen.
