Villa dei Fiori rests on a 3.3-acre promontory in the tranquil expanse of lower Bel Air. Discreetly secluded behind private gates on prestigious Bel Air Road, the estate spans three legal lots, featuring two distinct addresses and entrances (725 and 729 Bel Air Road) on serene park-like grounds. Once owned by financier and philanthropist Robert Day, founder of Trust Company of the West, this Palladian Villa boasts a rich history of illustrious gatherings, including visits from former U.S. presidents. A long ocean-view driveway gives a grand sense of arrival leading into a circular motor court. Through towering double doors, a two-story oval foyer boasts a soaring skylight and a bespoke chandelier, while floor-to-ceiling glass windows offer breathtaking views of the city skyline and ocean beyond. Outside, a vast covered terrace invites intimate gatherings, while an adjacent outdoor dining room terrace sets the scene for glamorous soirees under the stars. Wood-carved doorways lead into the timelessly elegant formal living room, featuring a grand fireplace, elaborate ornamental plaster 14-foot ceiling and floor-to-ceiling glass pocket doors unfolding to the dramatic loggia. The adjacent library exudes old-world charm, complete with an 18th-century chandelier, intricately carved wood ceiling and cozy fireplace, while a discreet door unveils a kitchenette blending practicality with refinement. The East Hall boasts two distinctive powder rooms, perfect for parties. Double doors unveil the expansive primary suite wing, featuring custom shelving, fireplace, adjacent private sitting room and an arched loggia with city and ocean views. The bright luxurious bathroom offers mountain views from the marble soaking tub, heated mosaic tile floors, a garden-view shower and an expansive walk-in closet. An additional dressing area with rich wood detailing hosts a walk-in closet and powder room. A custom office rounds out the wing, opening to a secret garden sanctuary with cityscape views. Off the West Hall, the grand formal dining room features an elaborate coffered, suspended ceiling illuminated by a Meissen porcelain chandelier, and walls adorned with 18th Century French wallpaper. The gourmet chef's kitchen is equipped with top-of-the-line appliances, butler's pantry and auxiliary kitchen. The adjacent staff quarters offer two full-bedroom suites, powder room and a staff break/dining area. A large house manager's office suite with full bathroom completes the wing. Descend to the entertainment level, with a wine cellar, screening room, disco/lounge with built-in bar and kitchenette. Two sumptuous guestroom suites allow rose garden views and direct access to the lavish swimming pool and cabana. An impeccably groomed croquet lawn is surrounded by fruit and mature trees. The secluded 2-story guest house with dedicated separate entrances, presents 1BD/1.5BA on the upper level and 1BD/1BA on the lower level. The cascading landscaping enchants with lush tiers descending into terraced layers. A soothing bougainvillea and wisteria arbor walkway leads to a botanical garden with a serene small lake housing specimen Koi. Majestic tropical flowers, plants and palm trees adorn the surroundings, while a woodsy forest invites exploration. A Cypress-lined promenade leads to a stone-lined pathway flanked by bamboo, ending at a formal rose garden. The East side of the estate reveals a private 2BD/2BA Guest House with captivating city views and separate gated entrance/parking. Villa dei Fiori offers a symphony of luxury living, with amenities including a dedicated guard station, 6 wood-burning fireplaces, gym with sauna, private garages for automotive enthusiasts, Argentinian padel tennis court with pavilion, 8 fountains, 2 Koi ponds, ample storage and more.
