Are you in the mood for an epic road trip with your own Tuscan-inspired property?
If the seller of this Tuscan-style villa gets the full price of $18 million, they will treat the future owner with a $100,000 trip to Portofino and Lake Como.
While we're not sure which part is more exciting, the villa itself or the journey, we'll start with the magnificent estate, which spans an impressive 1,300 square meters and sits on a lot of almost 1.5 hectares.
Named Villa Serenia, this magnificent California residence is inspired by Tuscan style thanks to designer James Ring. Imagine limestone floors, hand-hewn massive beam ceilings and beautiful terraces. The villa's interior features six bedrooms and 10 bathrooms, including two master suites that overlook the Santa Monica Mountains.
The paparazzi-proof estate has a host of luxury amenities you'd expect from a property of this calibre, along with some extras that are less often seen. Among the usual accompanying amenities are a cinema for 15 people, a swimming pool and a temperature-controlled wine cellar for 800 bottles.
On the other side, there is a 500-gallon saltwater aquarium and a Koi Pond with a built-in waterfall. The villa also has a secret "gentleman's office". This means that the bookshelves serve as an entrance to a separate room. There you'll find 200-year-old beamed ceilings and a state-of-the-art outdoor kitchen.
If you're wondering what awaits you on the $100,000 trip, it's an 11-day adventure that includes airfare, five-star hotel accommodations, and a variety of activities. The journey begins with a first-class flight. After landing in Portofino, Belmond Spendido Mare will serve as your home base as you enjoy everything from a private yacht ride to a cooking class and enjoying the sunsets. On the sixth day, you will head to the Grand Hotel Tremezzo in Italy's lake region where a private boat tour of Lake Como, a helicopter ride to Lake Maggiore and a coastal cruise are on the menu.
