La Toscana, Where Tuscany meets Genoa
Nestled at the foothills of the magnificent Sierras lies one of the most majestic homes in Northern Nevada. An extraordinary property custom built utilizing some of the finest materials, craftsmanship and design elements available. Reclaimed wood beams and stone floors from France, groin vault ceilings, honed marble counters, custom ornamental iron railings and beautiful hand painted murals instantly give the feeling of being transported to an Italian countryside.
Sitting on a private lake, overlooking the 5th tee on the Genoa Lakes golf course, La Toscana casts an impressive refection of unsurpassed quality. The exterior features a classic stucco and solid stone design; typical of Tuscan architecture. As you approach the home through a dramatic towering stone breezeway, you will find an inviting courtyard just off the entry. Passing through a fortress-type arched wooden door to a grand entry hall with 20′ ceilings, impressive chandelier, beautiful stone floors and captivating lake views, you instantly feel the warmth of this stately home. Custom designed furnishings, Venetian plaster, arched passageways and unique high-end finishes create the Tuscan atmosphere.
The heart of the home is the kitchen and La Toscana’s is the perfect place to gather friends and family. An old world Tuscan style is captured with rustic reclaimed beams, lustrous custom cabinetry, honed marble counters, artistically crafted range hood and wide plank hickory hardwood floors. High-end appliances; including 2 Miele dishwashers, 6-burner double oven Dacor gas range, additional Dacor oven and warming drawer, separate GE Monogram refrigerator and freezer provide a professional level of functionality. The kitchen adjoins a stone enhanced, curved breakfast nook with arched windows framing picturesque lake and mountain vistas between the panes. Opening on to one of the homes most impressive features – a covered flagstone patio, complete with built in barbecue featuring a custom hand painted chimney, ideal for dining alfresco. The flagstone terraced patio expands to include a large stone hot tub where you can enjoy a moonlit soak overlooking the pristine lake and artistic landscaping designed with privacy in mind.

“One of the most majestic homes in northern Nevada, this custom-designed property has six bedrooms.
It covers 7,320 sq ft and is nestled at the foothills of the magnificent Sierras, bringing a sense of southern Europe to this American city of Genoa. It has reclaimed wood and stone beams and stone floors from France and Italian-style hand-painted murals, as well as a tile-pitched roof, groin vault ceilings and ornamental iron railings.
Outside there is both covered and uncovered patio decking, an in-ground hot tub and built-in barbecue.
The resort has two championship golf courses – one over the lakes, full of wildlife, and the other with a desert-style layout with views of the Carson Valley.”
