Renowned architect John Simon Sabatino took well over a year to design and build Casa Mura, making sure he understood how sunlight and its angles, bounced off each side of the house. His house was built amid 100-year old ruins, left behind from an unexpected fire. Casa Mura is a visual and historic delight to all who visit. Sabatino's showmanship and talent are apparent after his collaboration with colorists and the use of pavilions as a model. A Reception Pavilion, a Bedroom Pavilion and a Utility Pavilion provide everything you need to enjoy each aspect of this home. The Reception Pavilion has been cleverly designed with a winding staircase and overhead loft, providing an ideal location to greet your guests. Lead your guests down the hallway through an art gallery from which Sabatino himself displayed and sold his artwork. The current owners, one of which is an award-winning landscape designer, had the new pergola built after a visit to Italy inspired the design. Words fail to capture the uniqueness of the grand Casa Mura ... you must see it to believe it!
