Few real estate destinations can match the beauty found in Italy’s Lake District. Red-roofed villas and ivy-draped dwellings overlook shimmering blue waters and purple-tinged mountains, igniting wanderlust in even the most staid of hearts. And while Italy’s natural beauty can rarely be rivaled, a Tuscan-style villa in Bel Air, Calif., will make homeowners feel like they are in the Italian countryside.  

Casa Lago—which just listed for $32.5 million and is debuting exclusively on RobbReport.com—overlooks Los Angeles’ Stone Canyon Reservoir. The 21,000-square-foot home features eight bedrooms (including two staff spaces) and fifteen bathrooms. Its formal living room showcases a double-sided fireplace, ornate wood detailing, and massive glass doors that lead to an open-air loggia offering a sweeping vista of the Los Angeles skyline. Arched doorways, carved stone moldings, stained glass windows, and marble accents sprinkled throughout the home harken back to old-world European decor.

Upstairs, the master wing has its own kitchenette, a fireplace, and an expansive sitting area with French doors that lead to an outdoor terrace. Beautifully appointed his-and-her bathrooms feature built-in walnut shelves, steam showers, and deep soaking tubs. Culinary possibilities abound as a butler’s pantry, catering station, dining room, and gourmet kitchen grace the grounds. Adding to the estate’s over-the-top amenities are a 12-person movie theater, a billiards room with a wet bar, and a glass-enclosed wine cellar with room for more than 1,000 bottles.

Inspired by ancient Roman baths, the indoor pool is a cut above most residential pools. Elaborate stained glass skylights allow natural light to filter into the swimming space, and blue-and-white mosaic wall patterns provide soothing visual allure. A nearby bathroom, sauna, steam shower, gym, and dressing area elevate the area to a spa-like retreat.

Outside, two infinity pools overlook the scenic sprawl of Los Angeles and the Pacific Ocean in the distance. A bevy of bridges and pathways connect al fresco terraces and hillside gardens adorned with rose bushes and lavender plants. Nestled among olive groves, the estate is ideal for anyone seeking la bella vita. (Inquiries: Branden and Rayni Williams of Hilton and Hyland; 310.278.3311. Aaron Kirman, 424.249.7162; aaroe.com)
