The Bellusci Home
Nancy and Bruce Bellusci, who met through their shared careers in men’s fashion, have lived in large cities for most of their lives – from Cleveland, Ohio, to New York to Chicago. After 30 years living and working in Chicago, Bruce received a job offer down South, and the Belluscis soon found themselves searching for a home around Cleveland, Tennessee. “This house was really love at first sight,” Bruce says. Nancy affirms, “We had never lived anywhere like this before, and we weren’t planning to take on quite this much property, but we were just so impressed with this home when we saw it.”
The couple’s French country-style dwelling is perched at the high point of a nearly four-acre lot that surveys rolling green hills. For the past five years, Nancy and Bruce have thought of it more as a vacation home thanks to its luxurious setting and the home’s stunning indoor and outdoor spaces, perfect for every season.
