Castello della Costa d'Oro

The principal structure of the estate is the transcendent main residence, a lavish home designed as both a comfortable sanctuary and an incomparable backdrop for entertaining.

Inspired by Italian Renaissance and neo-classical design, the architecture combines the confident power and scale of Roman architecture with the lyrical beauty of the high Renaissance. 

Architects Christopher H. Belknap, David Brown and Stephen R. Sutherland crafted a sublime residence of transporting beauty, hewn of the finest natural materials and now embellished with magnificent fine art, craftsmanship, and regal furnishings.





The two wings of Castello della Costa d’Oro extend out from the Grand Ballroom at a slight angle, visually embracing the terrace that runs along the rear exposure, and opening the rooms to the ocean and forest views to the south. The East Wing houses the residence's private domain, including the enfolding luxury of the Master Suite, while the West Wing showcases hospitality--from the stylish Onyx Bar to the light-hearted

Theatre Room with its "Punchinello" murals.


Beneath the classical design, a state-of-the-art security, intercom, internet, music and lighting system allows complete environmental control and enables the homeowner to visually monitor the home via internet from anywhere in the world.
