Located at the edge of the Arroyo Seco, 'The Villetta', designed by Paul Loveland in 1924 as his personal residence and studio, is a magnificently appointed Italian country estate. Built around a sun filled center courtyard this entertainers dream showcases many architectural treasures; wrought iron entry gates and balconies, studded oak doors, carved stone fireplace, walnut beams, soaring cathedral ceilings, hardwood floors and an updated gourmet kitchen. The light filled main floor master suite opens to the private courtyard. The main floor also hosts a gracious guest suite. Two ground floor bedrooms, one with separate entrance is perfect for grown kids or a caretaker. The home has been thoughtfully renovated to include a large family room with fireplace and an office/library with extensive built-ins, exercise studio and refrigerated wine storage. The manicured grounds offer mature landscaping, graceful fountains, accent lighting and the intimate courtyards reminiscent of a proper Mediterranean garden.
