Rome Exclusive is pleased to offer the Conti-Bassanese villa on the market, a unique residential complex located in a quiet, elegant and comfortable area, conceived at the time with a noble purpose and as a study center; a historic property from the 1400s just 5 km from the historic center of Vicenza, exactly in Monticello Conte Otto (Cavazzale). The property is surrounded by 8500sqm of gardens, including two Pompeian and large parking spaces from which the property can be accessed through the various entrances. The building is easily accessible from the street. The commercial part, on the other hand, extends over 1500 square meters. The villa, which contains countless original elements including borders, frescoes, stairs and part of the wooden beams; a charming gothic-style dwelling which, thanks to the above-average but still contained mural heights, make the villa livable 365 days a year. Giovanni Conti, a well-known doctor of the time, we also find historical elements represented through Latin mural engravings on the noble floors SE FINIS BONVS CVNCTA BONA.
Furthermore, the spiral cornices of the panoramas surrounding the entrance windows and the curved fifteenth-century door on the west side are original from the 15th century. The property has two independent entrances where we find on the ground floor, of about 350 square meters, a majestic entrance, a large kitchen, a guest bathroom, various lounges with splendid frescoes, four bedrooms and two bathrooms; there are also various closets and an ironing area. Going up to the main floor, however, via a staircase that is also always original from the time, we enter the main room where the noble coat of arms of the House is frescoed. The main floor extends over a large floor area, including various lounges with stunning views of the gardens and the wonderful frescoes along the entire ceiling and walls that accompany us to the magnificent linear kitchen of about eight meters by nine; the floor ends with a master bedroom and a bathroom covered with marble slabs. The floors are all in Venetian style, partly recovered during the renovation and a magnificent original terracotta. The attic area instead is used as a Superior King Suite of 160 square meters, with a view of the Berici Mountains and the Asiago plateau.

The Suite can be reached via a wonderful wooden staircase, also recovered during the renovation and is an ideal place to contemplate study, art and culture; currently used as a Bed & Breakfast with a deliberately chosen 3 Lions rating, which can be brought back to 5.
Part of the new body instead of about 600 square meters, is used as commercial / managerial offices, equipped with a lift and further convertible to various solutions with great development potential. Furthermore, on the first floor, we find a modern apartment consisting of entrance, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom that could be a perfect apartment for a possible caretaker, or for guests who prefer their own intimacy.
The property has undergone three renovations over the years: the first towards the second half of the 1500s where it underwent a complete renovation and expansion, which led the villa to become one of the most elegant villas of the time; in 1700, where the lower side wings were joined to the main body, and the last one, which took place in the 90s where the various original floral ornaments and frescoes of the 1400s were rediscovered. Today the splendid Conti-Bassanese villa is part of the great historical and cultural heritage of Veneto. A private historic home that is in fact a kaleidoscopic reality, with multiple facets.
