The Palm

Published on: January 5, 2012

When the enterprising founder, Angelo De Gasperis, of CountryWide Homes, set out to create the company's signature communities, he was driven by a powerful vision — to create an exclusive collection of luxurious residences in spectacular settings for the most discerning customers.

His vision is now yours to experience at King Country Estates in Nobleton, where on December 14, 2011, the company unveiled their first Tuscan inspired home “THE PALM” - a one of a kind home that has become the catalyst for the organizations new TUSCAN SERIES designs. These designs are now being offered at King Country Estates in Nobleton and Upper Thornhill Estates in Vaughan.

The grandeur of features and finishes, both inside and out, are truly extraordinary. The exterior of the home features a Tuscan stucco applied finish accented with smooth limestone, treated copper and wrought-iron details including expansive windows allowing ample natural light into the home. The heated driveway and 4 car garage provides plenty of space for car enthusiasts while the numerous porches, balconies and decks provide for beautiful vistas of the protected valley lands, pine forests, winding creeks and trails as well as the fully landscaped grounds.

When you walk into the interior of home, you’ll immediately be greeted by a 19’ high marble foyer with marble cladded staircase and decorative iron railings that leads to over 6500 sq. ft. of extravagantly finished living space. The 10’ height architectural detailed ceilings throughout the main floor include a varied array of finishes. For example, the homes den and family rooms are waffled while the hallways, living and dining rooms feature tray, diamond and coffered ceilings. Rounded corner details can be found on all archways and windows while the dark stained plank style hardwood floors and oversized oak baseboards are complemented by 8’ extended height vintage style solid doors.

Step into the breakfast area and feel the warmth and comfort from the radiant heated floors which lead into the expansive traditional gourmet kitchen with oversized island featuring leathered granite countertops, stone hood fan, and customized solid maple cabinets including various fully integrated Sub-Zero, Miele and Wolf Appliances.
