This historical villa of the early 20th century, characterized by an imposing turret, lies surrounded by a spacious classic Italian garden with tall trees and enriched by boxwood and laurel hedges, holly trees, azaleas and cammelias.
The villa, built during the twenties and in excellent maintenance condition, presents the classical building characteristics of the Liberty-style manor houses such as typical mullioned windows, colonnaded loggias, bossage, pilasters, friezes, and the classical roof-terrace with turret and columns with round arches, in addition to grit floors and splendid cast iron radiators.
This important building, immersed in a green oasis with absolute privacy but at just 2 km from all the main services, stands on two main storeys, besides cellar and turret.
A wonderful loggia leads up to the ground floor of about 140 sqm where you find a wide living-room, a dining-room dominated by the monumental fireplace covered with wood and tiles designed by the famous Liberty architect Chini, in addition to a kitchen and a study room.
The first floor, accessible from a marble staircase with wrought-iron railing, includes the sleeping area featuring four double bedrooms (of which the master bedroom measures more than 25 sqm) and two bathrooms, besides a large terrace with views over the garden below.
The turret floor consists of a single large bright space, topped with a roof with wooden trusses, usable as further bedroom, hobby or study room. On the basement level you find a spacious cellar, a bathroom and some technical rooms. Adjacent to the villa, there is a dependance, a lovely building on two levels: the first floor is a cosy apartment consisting of a living-room, a kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom besides a terrace, usable by guests or service staff.
The ground floor of the dependance comprises a wide arched portico, ideal space for lunches and dinners outdoors, equipped with wood-fired oven and barbecue.
Another highlight of this house is the beautiful tiny church lying on the ground floor of the dependance, completely furnished and formerly used by the employees and farmers working for the master who lived in the manor house.
This historical and exclusive property also includes a large land of about 6,800 sqm, divided into lawn and wood. Show more Show less
