Per Variety’s exclusive, Valletta purchased the 1920’s estate nearly fifteen years ago. She then hired designer Ross Cassidy to update it with eco-friendly elements.

Living Room

The 2,400 square-foot abode features original architectural details like vaulted ceilings,  exposed beams, and wide-plank oak floors mixed with contemporary accents like a hand-carved, black granite fireplace.


The pale blue library is outfitted in steel-framed windows—with views of the front courtyard—as well as floor-to-ceiling built-in bookcases.



The walnut-clad chef’s kitchen comes complete with custom cabinetry made from salvaged wood and a solid marble center island-meets-snack-counter that can seat up to six.

Dining Room

The breakfast room boasts a metallic chinoiserie wall covering and opens directly out to a stone-tiled al fresco terrace in the backyard.

Master Suite

The colossal master suite offers a sitting room (with painted ceilings), two walk-in closets, and a veranda with French doors that overlooks the courtyard and gardens.

Guesthouse Kitchen

There’s even a detached guesthouse—hidden behind perfectly manicured hedges—with a private entrance, balcony, and candy-red kitchenette; it earns this Spanish-style residence a permanent spot on our design inspo boards.
