The city of Los Angeles has spent $375,000 so far to fix up Getty House in the months leading up to Mayor Eric Garcetti's arrival, officials said Tuesday.

The biggest share of the cost -- more than $247,000 -- went toward new paint and plaster repairs for the interior and exterior of the 8,076-square-foot English Tudor-style mansion, Curry said.

SANTA BARBARA--Perched on a rock, steps away from the gentle waves licking at the shore, 20-year-old Michael Jimenez allowed his eyes to wander up an oceanfront cliff, to a majestic estate nestled in a grove of cypress and eucalyptus trees. He shuddered. For decades, mystery has shrouded the manor known as Bellosguardo, where every blade of grass seemed to be in place, but no one ever seemed to be home. Among young people like Jimenez, who grew up here, there were whispers about an abandoned orphan, about spirits from the nearby cemetery.

With its saturated colors, chrome-plated furniture, pink feathery plumes and outrageous animal chairs (ghoulish octopus, goth rhinoceros), the latest makeover of Greystone Mansion into decorator show house isn't exactly a lesson in try-this-at-home design.   No matter. Visitors who appreciate an over-the-top experience will find plenty in the Fendi Casa mirror TV, the crazy color combinations (red and turquoise in a tribute to Italian fashion designer Valentino), the patterned wall applications and the opulence loaded into the sprawling 1928 Tudor mansion.
