If Clooney can’t get to Lake Como, he’ll bring Lake Como to him! George and Amal Clooney are reportedly in the process of renovating their Los Angeles home, a six-room Studio City villa the actor purchased back in 1995 from Stevie Nicks for a modest $2.2 million.
“He and Amal spend more time than ever in L.A. these days,” explains a Star source, “so he’s making their home there more comfortable and more in line with his aesthetic.”
The reno will be a spare-no-expenses, multimillion-dollar job, the source adds. George is building two additional living quarters and has commissioned a well-known Italian architect for the job. “It’s like he’s bringing his favorite place, Italy, to L.A.” And if the finished product resembles George and Amal’s lavish compound in Laglio even remotely, it’s sure to be impressive. Chimes the insider: “He already has the permits, so it’s a go!” Fans can expect an homage to all the Italian architectural elements he loves: “He’s adding a bridge and water features, and a funicular, of all things!” Seems the couple truly are enjoying la dolce vita.★
