Tuscany’s jewel-box villas and Wallace Neff’s exquisite California Mediterranean houses of the 1920s and ’30s inspired this symmetrical Tuscan residence in Beverly Park. The two-story entry surround, with columns below and Baroque scrolling above, was inspired by the “risalto” motif found in villas outside Florence. The front door offers a view straight through to the gardens and pool beyond. Doric columns, corner quoining and roof overhangs with carved wood rafter tails continue the Tuscan theme.
