Villa D’Ambra

The Decorators ShowHouse returned to Shelby County in 2014.

This year, Villa D’Ambra, a stunning 12,000-square-foot Mediterrenean home, was chosen as the showhouse for the annual fundraiser, which benefits the Alabama Symphony Orchestra.

Located in Greystone, Villa D’Ambra was built in 1994 by its current owners, Michelle and Michael D’Ambra. The home has six bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms and four fireplaces.

The D’Ambras relocated to France for four years when Michael was transferred by Time Warner Cable.

“When they came back, they completely redid the exterior,” Decorators’ ShowHouse publicity chair Nan Teninbaum said. “It’s patterned after the grand mansions of Europe.”
