But when the perfectly aged, 12-foot arched wooden garage doors open to reveal an 11-car, 3200 ft² garage with cut marble mosaic flooring and Austrian crystal chandeliers, all of which converts to a Venetian-style ballroom with the touch of a button, you soon realize that nothing is as it appears at Villa d’Este, Orange County.
The original Villa d’Este (Tivoli, Italy) was inducted into the UNESCO World Heritage List of cultural masterpieces in 2001…ironically, the same year that construction was completed at the Villa d’Este, OC.
