On the panoramic hilltop of Monte Argentario, not far from Porto Santo Stefano, we find this 265-sqm sea view villa with garden and pool. The property, split into two wings, currently offers a total of 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms and could be easily rented out (either as single bedrooms or as a whole house). The terraced garden and the pool area enjoy a wonderful view over the sea and the Giglio Island to the horizon.
The property is easily reached and is provided with all the necessary services by the nearby town of Porto Santo Stefano (7km; 15’) but all the cities of Argentario and Tuscan coastline are quickly reached (Orbetello, Porto Ercole, Talamone, Grosseto, Saturnia, Punta Ala…). Even Rome (158km) can be reached in just over two hours.
The closest airport is Grosseto (53km; 50’) but for intercontinental flights we strongly suggest the terminals in Rome, Florence and Pisa.
DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDING
The villa (265 sqm – 2,851 sqft, 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms) is made up of two wings, separated by a small portico. The building is laid over two floors, both easily accessed from outside and organized as follows:
- Lower floor: four bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms;
- Upper floor: entrance hall, kitchen, dining room, two bedrooms, two bathrooms and an ample living room with a beautiful outdoor terrace
Just below the villa there is another room which could be used either as a cellar or a laundry room.
Not far from the villa, along the access road, there is a convenient garage.
The building, in good aesthetic and structural condition, boasts classical finishes mixed with modern elements: the living room on the upper floor boasts barrel-vaulted ceilings, terracotta floors and a stone fireplace with ample windows allowing light to brighten the room.
The bedrooms are very simple in style, with terracotta floors and white-painted walls, and enjoy a beautiful view over the sea.
Exiting the villa one ends up onto paved terraces with a unique and breath-taking view over the sea and the Giglio Island towards the horizon.
The building is surrounded by roughly 1.0 hectare of land (2.5 acres), mainly covered in a tree-dotted garden. Going down a stone staircase, we get to the pool area, fully paved in cotto tiles, with a 12 × 5.5 m basin and solarium.
USE AND POTENTIAL USES
The property, which enjoys a unique and enviable position, is perfect both as a private all-year-long residence and as a holiday house for summer.
What’s more, thanks to the peculiar shape of the two wings, the many bedrooms in the villa could easily be used as a base for an accommodation business, renting them out singularly (or all together) to interested vacationers.
