A rare opportunity to buy an exclusive unique villa designed during 1960s by a well- known Tuscan -Florentine architect. The villa style reminds us of the “organic architecture”, term coined by the American architect Frank Lloyd Wright, which promotes harmony between human habitation and the natural world. As well as the Falling-water, the residence Wright designed and built directly over the waterfall, Villa Sassobianco has been built in perfect correspondence with surrounding environment. The villa is on 4 levels arranged over 4 terraced gardens creating a perfect blending between nature and architecture. The property features stone walls, huge terraces and various big windows and doors opening on to panoramic outside spaces that benefit from spectacular views across the seaside and the hills. Its interior design has been carefully planned to create an ideal blending of internal and external elements, like the choice of using the same flooring both in the living rooms and in the terraces or the internal stone walls that match with stone patios outside. This magnificent property is surrounded by extensive terraced gardens extending up to 16.000 sq m (4 acres), which include 100 olive trees, where it is possible to build a large swimming pool. The villa measures approx. 840 sq m and has its accommodation arranged on 4 levels. On the lower level is the staff's apartment/quarters comprising kitchen, living room, bathroom, 2 bedrooms, utility room and garage. The upper levels consists of 3 living rooms (one living room on each floor), a fully equipped kitchen, six bedrooms and seven bathrooms. Each floor features large windows and doors opening on to garden and terraces, ideal spaces where having “al-fresco” dining with family and friends or relaxing under the Tuscan sun enjoying the panorama

The town of Camaiore with shops, restaurants and facilities is only 2,5 km away, while the seaside is easily reachable within 10 mins drive (8 km away). The property is ideally situated to visit the most beautiful Tuscan cities of arts such as Lucca, Pisa, Florence as well as the Cinque Terre along Ligurian Riviera.
Camaiore is a very wide community which stretches from the fascinating peaks of the Apuan Alps to the Tyrrhenian Sea, in the heart of Versilia, an area full of charme and tradition. Its territory can be ideally divided into four major areas: Seimiglia hills, the capital with its valley, the plain of Capezzano and the coastline of Lido. Indeed, this area is one of the few places in the world where one can find such a combination of landscapes and sceneries: from the sea to the hills, from the mountains to the lakes, from the beach to the Apuan Alps Natural Park. Camaiore has Roman origins and it is worth visiting its pretty, ancient village centre, where the predestrian street of Via Vittorio Emanuele represents the decumano and the hub of the historical centre; here and in the nearby streets there are all the main services, shops, pubs, restaurants, and so forth. The hills of Camaiore hinterland are the perfect destination both for nature lovers and culture enthusiasts. From the several and peculiar hilly hamlets, one can admire fantastic natural landscapes, also with a view on the coastline and historical and artistic beauties, immersed in the green and silence of the countryside. From the hilly areas, the centre of Camaiore, the seaside and the beaches of the famous Versilia Riviera can be conveniently reached by car in just a few minutes. The hilly hinterland allows to go walking, cycling or horse riding and the mountains, easily reachable by a short drive, offer a broad range of routes. Show more Show less
