A Taste of Tuscany in Tennessee with the incredible Vineyard Wedding Venue & Estate named Villa Nove. The dream began with a field of dandelions and a view beyond words. The Italian Farmhouse nestled in the Appalachian High Country is a unique and authentic representation of an exquisite Tuscan home. Upon entering the wrought iron gates you will feel as if you have arrived in Tuscany. Surrounded with awe-inspiring views and vineyard laced hills this property is unrivaled in Northeast Tennessee. Villa Nove Vineyards encompasses 34+ rolling acres with eight acres of grapes that supply award winning wines for Watauga Lake Winery - part of the Appalachian High County American Viticulture Area. The winery, also included, was converted from the historic Big Dry Run Schoolhouse and serves as a fully-equipped venue for wine tastings, blending and bottling parties, cooking classes, tours, festivals, and many other events. Along side of the vineyard is a timeless Wedding/Event Venue. The Vineyard Pavilion will accommodate over 200 guests for weddings, reunions, corporate events, or other special occasions. A three bedroom Vineyard Cottage sets at the foot of the Vineyard and serves as a welcome retreat for guests. The private residence originally inspired from a Southern Living design home in Ft. Worth, Texas and adapted by a local architect in Boone, North Carolina, features approximately 5,000+ square feet of elegant yet comfortable living. Sourced from nearby hills all of the woodworking throughout the home was custom made and distressed by the owners. Soaring ceilings dressed with hand-made maple beams, hand-cut imported stone, thick walls made of porous Texas limestone, Italian floor tiles, groin ceiling, hand painted murals, arched doorways and the Versace Italian chandeliers all contribute to the carefully selected materials to compliment the European castle design. By Italian architectural standards it is "just a farmhouse" however the mix of the very old and slightly new creates a perfect montage of farmhouse charm. You cannot help but be transported across the world. A rare opportunity with a rich history and unlimited potential for the next owners to carry on the tradition and continue the dream.
