The spectacular and expansive Casa Piena (meaning Full House) may be located on 4.5 acres of land in San Diego, California, but the Italian-inspired estate is as authentic as they come. To say that the 39-room estate was a major “labor of love” for all parties involved during its construction could never be considered an understatement.
The 11 bedroom, 17 bathroom Casa Piena took almost 5 years to complete and brought together some of the world’s finest artisans and craftsmen to create one-of-a-kind murals, wood paneling, mosaics and other high-quality handcrafted touches.
“The amazing quality of craftsmanship and attention to detail in the Casa Piena estate is unparalleled in any other property that I have had the opportunity to work on,” stated Ed Earl of Priority One Properties. Earl served as the Owners Construction Project Manager for this estate and represented the homeowner in all interactions with the contractor, architect, designers and tradesman during the construction of the estate home and is now performing as the broker.
Hand forged iron gates usher visitors into the palatial estate, which is composed of four separate buildings. The main house, pool cabana, guesthouse and detached garage total 26,862 square feet under roof. Outdoor features include a sunken tennis court, 3,000+ square foot pool with exhilarating water features, a gazebo, terraced areas, an olive orchard and a private jogging trail that surrounds the estate.
The interior of this private estate showcases and array of classic details, such as carved wood moldings, solid walnut doors, elaborate beamed and hand painted ceilings, ancient stone floors, exotic wood-paneled walls, authentic Italian lighting, and imported hand-carved stone fireplaces.
The materials used for Casa Piena come from over 20 distinct countries all over the world, including Egypt, Tunisia, Madagascar, Bali, China, Brazil, Greece, Spain, Italy, France, Germany, England, Canada, and Mexico.
Old-world styling and imported materials are a large focal point of Casa Piena. Not only do they add value and a rich uniqueness to the home, but they bring all of the ease and grace of an Italian countryside villa to the lush green setting of Southern California.
