Being constructed circa 1950’s by a famous Hollywood film director for his wife, this home is a gem of a family home. The design was based upon the style of Shirley Maclaine's home in Los Angeles, where there is every great sense of elegance from the elevated position of where it sits. 30 years after the home was built the owners at the time extended it considerably and it became the residence of a member of the Kuwaiti Royal family.

More recently Zaldia has undergone refurbishment by the current owners, who have given the home a fantastic authentic Italian yet present influence.
