Villa Dragone is located in a splendid position with a 360 degree view of the entire Ligurian coast and the town of Camogli.
The property's construction dates back to the 1920s on commission from lawyer Bertolotto (mayor of Camogli for a long time) and his wife Countess Maria Pia Bianchi di Lavagna. The plans and works were followed by the Genoese engineer and architect Renzo Picasso, also known for having designed Piazza de Ferrari in Genoa.The property is accessed through an automatic gate, and you follow a pleasant slightly uphill road surrounded by greenery that ends in front of the two pertinent garages. The villa is surrounded by a garden of about 18,000 square meters equipped with gazebos, tables, and a panoramic stone tower with a small terrace above.Internally the property is divided into a main house and two annexes, one in a turret and the other on the ground floor. The master apartment opens onto a large entrance hall used as a study, and through a slate staircase you reach the upper level and a mezzanine with large windows. There is a living room, large eat-in kitchen and dining room with french doors opening onto the garden and terrace offering breathtaking views. In another wing of the villa there are two connected bedrooms, a bathroom and another room currently used as a study.Adjacent to the main property, but with independent access we find the annex in a turret on several floors connected by an oval-shaped slate spiral staircase. There are two bedrooms with decorated ceilings, a bathroom, a toilet, a kitchen, a small terrace with a view. On the top floor, with views on all four sides through large windows, we have a large living room with a beautiful fresco depicting the sun god and the constellations, painted in the posthumous phase of the construction by the Genoese artist Giovanni Battista Semino.On the ground floor, with a beautiful terrace also exposed to the sea, there is an additional apartment stacked but still to be restored, while the rest of the properties are in perfect condition.The house is elegantly finished, has decorated and frescoed ceilings and the floors are inlaid. There is also the possibility to build a large panoramic swimming pool.
