Inside Sandy Weill's 'Ancestral Enclave in Tuscany'...in Sonoma

Enchanted by what Architectural Digest calls a "sun-splashed" villa and "fields of sprightly California poppies and live oaks," former Citigroup CEO Sandy Weill and wife, Joan, sold their legendary NYC penthouse in favor of 360 acres of rural tranquility of Sonoma, Calif. While the vineyard property already boasted an expansive two-bedroom main residence, the real estate whale added on a four-bedroom guesthouse—equipped with an indoor pool and a wine library, naturally—that connects via shaded walkway. The entire compound got full interior makeover at the hands of interior by designer Mica Ertegun, who's previously worked with the mega-rich couple on their NYC apartment and Bahamas vacation villa, and now "suggests an ancestral enclave in Tuscany," thanks to exposed beam ceilings, marble columns, and slightly rustic, antique decor that's paired with the couple's formidable art collection. The entire home is featured in the July issue of Architectural Digest, but take a look at a couple shots below.
