This 2009 Parade Home won every award in the People’s Choice awards at the Parade of Homes. These include Best Kitchen, Best Master Suite, Best Outdoor Living, Best Overall Design, and Best Architectural Design. This Italian style villa was inspired by the warmth and casual comfort of European Architecture. The home has a welcoming courtyard in the front and a spacious pool in the back. It perfectly balances the feminine side with the masculine, working well for the homeowners. 

The courtyard is mirrored beautifully in the back of the home. Outside, the pool area opens up to the golf course, while still providing privacy and access to the outdoors. The home features a large game room that has a private poker room, as well as an interior rock and brick arch (a Jenkins trademark). Also inside is a state-of-the-art home theater, as well as a fabulous guest quarters, and creative use of the outdoor living spaces.

Since this client was a wild game hunter (who’d won the “Muy Grande” award several times), the Game Room was a priority. He wanted space for a poker table and wet bar, and she wanted a pinball machine. They got it all, including the poker table in its own round room surrounded by stone.
