Star (USA) - - STAR DISH -

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.★
