ake Sherwood is a guard-gated golf club community 40 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles. Developed in the 1980s by David Murdock, the chairman and CEO of Dole Food Company, the enclave is known for its meandering, man-made lake, the imposing period revival houses that front the lake, and the famous people who live in some of the houses. Just outside the gates, on the west side of the lake, a long, curving driveway lined with pines ascends to Villa del Lago, a 23,000-square-foot Tuscan-style pile shaded by oaks and cypress and ringed by a trio of ponds, complete with a storybook... For the most part the house, with its rustic stone facade, pair of towers, and century-old roof tiles, is a convincing approximation of an Italian farmhouse. In fact, it was built six years ago by the Los Angeles architect Richard Landry. His clients, Bob Byers, who ran a medical equipment supply company until he sold it in 2008, and his wife, Audrey, wanted a home that reminded them of their travels through central Italy. On a warm afternoon last September, I met Landry at Villa del Lago for a house tour. The architect, who at 59 has the gym-sculpted body, year-round tan, and very white teeth of a motivational speaker, greeted me with a hug—“I’m a hugger,” he said—and introduced me to Audrey Byers before we went inside. From the entrance hall, which is 28 feet tall and has 200-year-old wood beams and floors, we proceeded to the great room, a soaring two-story space overlooked by a picturesque mezzanine—the perfect spot, Landry observed, for a quartet to play at a... Byers confessed that she and her husband had yet to hire a quartet but said they would like to sometime. “At the same time there are lots of fun, contemporary features,” Landry went on, accordioning a set of folding glass doors to open the room to a crescent-shaped swimming pool whose gray-blue surface echoed the lake beyond (“our little Lake Como,”... The dining room has waxy Venetian plaster walls, artisan-carved wood columns, and a barrel-vaulted brick ceiling. It also has a wine room with a tequila bar. In the middle of the wine racks, a backlit acrylic display studded with bottle fragments showcases shelves of vintage tequilas. “Bob likes wine, Audrey likes tequila, so we made them both happy,” said Landry. RELATED: These Are Southern California’s Most Wildly Futuristic Houses. The architect led us down the hall to the home theater, which features—in addition to a 14-foot screen and 12 subwoofers—a glass floor and an undulating ceiling of walnut and illuminated onyx. But the house’s real revelation lies below the glass floor: a 7,500-square-foot subterranean room that accommodates Bob Byers’s “man cave” and his extensive collection of classic cars. Under the same vaulted ceiling and old trusses that appear in other parts of the house, a bar with a 20-foot-long counter and five television sets (Bob Byers likes football as well as wine) holds a poker table, a player piano, and a jukebox. At the other end of the room, displayed in ten bays and kept sparkling by a car wash on the premises that uses purified well water, are the cars. (“I always wanted a Hummer, so my husband got me that ,” said Audrey Byers, feigning a sulk. Unlike many architects of his stature, Richard Landry does not have a signature style. He does French provincial, Polynesian revival, and California contemporary with equal aplomb. If the house is traditional, it will reliably be, in his words, “adapted to today’s lifestyle” with generous amounts of glass (skylights, floor-to-ceiling windows, glass floors). Prominent covered loggias, fanciful water features, and custom “hobby rooms” are trademarks. Some other typical amenities: conference rooms, ballrooms, safe rooms, theaters, bowling alleys, indoor basketball courts, separate kitchens for family and staff, gyms with yoga and Pilates wings, spas with massage rooms and indoor pools. The houses Landry designs are, by all measures, huge. He estimates that the 40 or so projects his firm juggles at any given time average between 10,000 and 15,000 square feet. The largest residence he is working on is a compound in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, whose square footage stretches well into the six figures. Landry has been called “the king of the megamansion” (by The New.
