Villa Ruchello is nestled in three acres of tropical gardens, secluded behind antique iron gates.
The Spanish / Moroccan style home features hand-painted ceilings with glass blown chandeliers from Venice.
The main house has eight bedrooms, a hammam, a music room, formal living and dining areas, a chef’s kitchen and private patios. Each of the home’s 13 bathrooms has custom mosaic floors.
Villa Ruchello’s spacious library holds the home’s greatest secret – an onxy-walled speakeasy. Another secret staircase descends into the home’s private fully-stocked wine cellar.
Smith told Manion Global he had poured millions into the property to “preserve and enhance its Old World craftsmanship while updating the home to today’s standards.”
