Influenced by Tuscany’s rustic farmhouses and crafted from the finest European-sourced stone and timber, this contemporary Italian-inspired estate in Southern California radiates splendor while still reflecting warmth and elegance; along with a couple’s love of traveling and hosting family and friends.

Richard Landry, a Los Angeles architect, was commissioned to design and build on 4 acres overlooking Lake Sherwood in Westlake Village, Calif. Landry visualized a six-bedroom, 10-bath, 23,000-square-foot Italian-influenced estate dominated by a rustic stone facade, portions of which were excavated from the site. Complementing the stone villa, is a roof composed of 21,000 Coppi tiles, made more than a century ago by Italian artisans who shaped the clay by hand over their legs.The landscaping design firm surrounded the house with Italian cypress and olive trees and meandering ponds and waterfalls with planks for the bridges that came from Coney Island.
The home’s 28-foot-high entrance hall has a hand-forged chandelier by Gregorius Pineo, and leads to the soaring great room, which affords striking views of the lake. The expansive loggia, crafted entirely from old-world items brought in from Europe abuts the family room creating one continuous space that is open to the elements. The master bedroom, which opens to the rear terrace, offers prime lake vistas. Subtle touches include a flat-panel TV that pops up and floor sensors on either side of the bed that, given the slightest pressure, trigger low lights leading to the adjacent bath.
Beneath a vaulted-beam ceiling is one of four en-suite guest bedrooms in the main house that look out to the surrounding mountains or the lake.
An estate of this magnitude should certainly have a kitchen workspace worthy of the finest chefs. Enough said.
On the main floor, near the master suite. sits the amazing home theater. With a backlit onyx-and-walnut ceiling and a glass floor, which enables theatergoers to admire the gentleman’s car collection in the garage below. the show is not merely on the screen. The home’s Crestron audio, video, lighting, climate-control, and security systems are acoustically tuned to the theater with surround sound and hidden reinforcement subwoofers
The suberranean garage is a 7,500-square-foot space that highlights the fabulous auto collection. Investment grade collector cars from Ferraris to Bentleys occupy the multi bay Tuscan barn motor court. At one end of the garage is the gentleman’s man cave, which is designed for poker parties and watching sporting events. Flanking a Lamborghini is a 1937 Packard 115 C Convertible with a rumble seat.

You will not find a more elegant and inspiring setting than this amazing villa on the lake. Ideally suited for large cocktail receptions or slightly smaller sit-downs. No guest will leave un-inspired.
