A Stunning and Luxurious European- Inspired Estate on 100+/- Acres


Just a short drive into the countryside of Venice, Florida lies one of the most palatial and remarkable homes in the region. Villa De Vita, the “House of Life,” is a Tuscan-inspired villa rich in architectural detail and beauty. Upon entering through a private gate, the wonder of this 100+/- acre estate is evident with a Spanish oak tree-lined drive that exposes the serene, pastoral setting of the property’s pristine grounds. Tucked within beautiful well-manicured landscaping is the stunning residence with its porcelain Spanish tile roof and European influences.

The main entry’s double mahogany doors open up to a breathtaking two-story cathedral-esque great room that offers a vaulted and raftered 35 foot ceiling, floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, grand lighting, and soaring arched entryways. Featuring a spacious and open layout, the home contains five bedrooms, seven full baths, and four half baths. Elegance is paramount throughout with extravagant fireplaces, mahogany woodwork, exquisite stone and marble flooring, intricate iron work, commissioned murals, and beautiful wood built-ins. The residence boasts a handsome library, home theatre with adjacent concession bar, personal gym, steam shower, elevator, and a billiards room with bar.

A spectacular gourmet kitchen is a chef’s dream with top-of-the-line Viking appliances, walk-in refrigerator, built-in brick pizza oven, dual dishwasher, large central cooktop island, granite countertops, copper sinks, French limestone flooring, and so much more. Wonderful for entertaining, the kitchen is complemented by a rustic dining room that features a wood beamed ceiling, stone fireplace, and double glass doors that lead onto a Verona patio.  

Indulge in the lavishness of the private master suite that showcases marble flooring, stone fireplace, cypress rafters, his and her baths, and a personal outdoor balcony. The lady’s master bath exudes opulence and luxury with a central Jacuzzi tub, fireplace, and a multiple jet shower that are all covered in Italian onyx marble. Just off of the dressing area is a wood staircase providing access to a charming widow’s peak.

The luxuriousness of this fabulous home extends to the outdoor living and entertainment space. A fountain hot tub waterfalls into a heated and lighted swimming pool that is surrounded by a scenic patio. This space also includes an outdoor kitchen and lovely covered dining area. In addition, the villa features a tennis court and children’s playground. If further space is needed to occupy guests, a sophisticated two-story guest cottage is nearby and features a 3-bedroom, 2-bath floor plan.  

Additional improvements include an eight-car garage, a twelve-bay customized equipment/collector’s garage, and two large tool or hobby rooms. This property is also ideal for equestrian endeavors with an immaculate 22-stall stable that’s fully equipped for thoroughbred training and contains two stable apartments. In addition to a 5/8 mile horse track, the training facility includes an observation room, offices, dressing area, tack room, and staff kitchen.

Villa De Vita is just ten minutes from the Venice Municipal Airport and Venice Beach. Surrounded by other countryside estates, Villa De Vita is a private 100+/- acre paradise that’s just a short drive from downtown Venice.
