Inspired by the famous La Suvera villa in Tuscany, this grand hallway is reminiscent of Old World Europe, featuring expansive steel windows and antique light fixtures that illuminate the interior portico. “The grand entrance
hallway is without peer in Southern California,” says
Pries. “I know of no other
home that incorporates the size, depth and quality of new and repurposed materials that went into its construction.”
Reclaimed brick accents the arches; flooring is rare imported Italian herringbone marble. Antique ceiling lanterns provide ample evening light.
