Rustic meets modern in this amazing countryside home in Italy. The building echoes with farmhouse tales and huge family dinners, but it also has a cool, modern edge not immediately apparent from the outside.

As you enter the home through one of its many doors, in a single eyeful you're welcomed by exposed stone walls, wide open windows and wood beams, contrasting clean, minimalist walls in white and finished with few details.

The living room and kitchen boast standard-height ceilings, giving them a warm, intimate feel. At the heart of the kitchen, a contemporary stainless steel island offers plenty of prep space, storage and a cool edge. The walls are kept free - why would anyone want to cover up this stunning feature with cabinets? Overhead, contemporary pot lights twinkle with modern simplicity.

On either side of the kitchen, the ceiling disappears to reveal a large, two-storey space flooded with natural light. As you look to the kitchen from either end, you'll appreciate the dropped ceiling that reminds us of a bridge. The rough stone wall is peppered with grays, browns and sandy variations, towering to the ceiling and dotted with deep windows framing the outside views.

Even outside, this brick country home is decidedly Old World, but complemented by a modern swimming pool with a bold white frame. The evenly spaced rectangular doorways at ground level and windows overhead provide visual interest to this stone monolith, while illuminating interiors with warm sunlight.
