This is a house that beckons one to look up. Set above the street in the Mayberry Heights neighborhood, near the border of Echo Park and Silver Lake, the 1927 Mediterranean villa was built by Los Angeles Times mechanic Innocenti Palombo to mirror a small palace from his hometown of Vicalvi, Italy. The impeccable craftsmanship continues in the decor, which includes hand-painted ceiling murals, elaborate crown molding and Art Deco chandeliers hung from coved ceilings.
