This exclusive and luxury property, like a highly precious old pearl, is set on the beachfront along the well-known promenade of Viareggio, standing out as one of the most prestigious villas along the promenade. This property, built in the 1920’s during the Liberty period, still evokes the atmospheres and the splendor of past times, through some architectural details such as decorated façades with ashlars, mouldings, friezes and ceramics; restored in 2012, it features floorings made of granite, French red and Carrara white marble, walls and ceilings embellished by stucco decorations, wood paneling and hand-painted decors, in addition to a wonderful wrought iron handrail of the marble staircase.
The crafted details of the interiors are the result of the utmost care taken during restructuring and renovation works, carried out in 1987, also in combination with modern plant technologies. The villa stands on four main levels, connected to each other by a lift and a beautiful marble staircase.
The elegant entrance from the road, after climbing eight steps, leads you to the important entrance lobby, on the mezzanine floor, characterized by a staircase and dusty rose-coloured paintings highlighted by white plaster mouldings. On this floor, you find a double sitting room with views of the sea and promenade, and a spacious dining-room, both of them finely decorated, in addition to a well-equipped kitchen and a first bathroom. From the kitchen, through a first terrace, you access an outdoor courtyard that can accommodate 4 cars comfortably, besides a single car box.
The first floor consists of four spacious double bedrooms also decorated with stuccoes, plaster mouldings and impressive floorings, some of them belonging to the Liberty period. Three bedrooms enjoy an enviable sea view and offer a balcony overlooking the promenade. This floor also comprises three bathrooms with marble floorings and tiling. The second floor, located under the roof and with significant heights, consists of a large open space with sea views, besides two large rooms usable as double bedrooms or study room and two further bathrooms. From the open space, through a marble stairway, you reach a spacious loft area of 50 sqm where, through a glass glazed pyramid, you can admire unbeatable views of the coastline.
Furthermore, this unique property includes a large basement with marble floor, also connected with the outdoor courtyard. On this level, you also find a further living area, a billiard room and a large tavern with fireplace, ideal for parties and dinners with friends, in addition to a bathroom and technical rooms.

The property overlooks the sea, directly on the promenade of Viareggio, at just 20 mt from the beach and the sea and at 50 mt from the west pinewood, halfway between Piazza Puccini and Piazza Mazzini, where all the main services are within easy reach on foot. Viareggio, city of mild climate throughout the year, is situated along the Northern coast of Tuscany and represents the final part of Versilia Riviera. The city is ideally located to discover the surrounding charming hills and the hinterland and is a great starting point from which to visit the main cities of art as well as tourist centres in Tuscany and Liguria. The long beach of Viareggio, covered with fine and golden sand, descends gently toward the sea where one can find famous, spacious and well-groomed bathing establishments. The seafront, a long and wide walkway, is extraordinary: dotted with elegants shops, boutiques, bars, clubs, cinemas, art galleries (and much more), overlooking the long avenues lined with palm trees besides some enchanting Liberty-style buildings. It is also interesting to visit and admire the historical centre, with its roads enriched with oleanders, its market and its shops along the pedestrian shopping streets. Viareggio also stands out for its docks, with their daily hard-working activities and its lively night life as well as its tourist harbour, where the most prestigious yachts, plying the seas around the world, are built and launched by urban worksites. The pinewoods (flanking both sides of the city), wonderful green areas (ideal sites for sporting activities) together with kilometers of cycling paths make the city of Viareggio a paradise for two-wheel fans and lovers of healthy life. Moreover, Viareggio hosts the Carnival and Puccini Festival, some among the most remarkable activities and cultural events, well-known not only in Italy but all around the world.
