Beautiful Tuscan Home


Imagine arriving home after a long day at work, filled with childlike anticipation for an invigorating yet peaceful paddle in your kayak, that just so happens to be outside your backdoor, meandering through a network of canals within your neighborhood. This is one of the many unique activities that Shawn, his wife Jesal, Jesal’s mother Hema, and their two children have to choose from since building their dream home in the former Homearama subdivision of Long Cove, located in Mason, Ohio.

The three-story 7,400 s.f. Italianate style home boasts five bedrooms, seven bathrooms (no fighting over bathroom time in this home), three kitchens (prep, formal & recreational), dining room, living room, two great rooms, breakfast room, fitness room, meditation room, and a four car heated garage featuring a rock climbing wall, tennis wall, and basketball hoop to boot!

The polished porcelain flooring, quartz bathroom & kitchen counters, and bathroom tiles were imported from India, as well as the abundant statues and sculptures.

Built with a geothermal heating and cooling system, the home is also environmentally friendly.

After working long hours at their separate private professional practices, Shawn and Jesal look forward to time spent together in their contemporary home bathed in light. The majority of rooms have captivating views of the tranquil water.  They’ve managed to fuse Hema and Jesal’s Indian heritage with the modern Tuscan architecture (to quote Jesal, “Bollywood meets Tuscany”). Having brought some of the furniture that Jesal grew up with into the home, brings back memories when she sees her children doing homework at the same table she sat at years ago as a young girl.
