Tom Petty's lakeside retreat. Casa Della Madonna is a stunning stone villa on the shore of Lake Sherwood. 125' of Lakefront. One of a kind retreat on Lake Sherwood's coveted Trentham Road. Close to Sherwood Country Club and Westlake Village. Soaring living room walls built of local fieldstone make an immediate impression. Approximately 5,300 square feet and nearly an acre, it boasts 125 feet of lakefront to enjoy swimming, fishing and boating from your private dock.
The original historic structure was completed in 1931 and a 2004 addition created a new master suite with deep stone tub & a balcony with fireplace, also 2 bedrooms, kitchen, dining/family & balconies, all with lake views. This deep end of the lake provides boating, fishing, swimming and spectacular sunset views. Only nine miles from the ocean, this location is blessed with afternoon breezes and is also above the fog zone, ensuring sunshine all summer.
An inspiration to musicians, actors and writers, this home inspires all and evokes memories of favorite summer vacations.
“The designer of Casa Della Madonna caught the spell of Ticino architecture… He learned the living room is really a room to live in. So here before the fire are generous chair for quiet talk and kindling silence, a grand piano beneath the high south window, a desk for flooded with Lakeside light…and the sunlight is lavish and the air is clean 1000 feet above the sea…”
