On a hill close to the Gulf of Catania, between the municipalities of Valverde and San Gregorio, near Catania and Aci Castello, stands this elegant villa, former home of the Borghese Princes as a hunting lodge.
The villa was built on the highest promontory of the hill and the two hectares of land, included in the sale, are developed in downhill terraces in order to make possible the view from the property towards the gulf, the stacks of Acitrezza and Etna, while maintaining a park, with old trees and gardens, which preserves the sea view. The villa covers an internal area of about 1200 square meters that are developed on several levels, served by a terrace and a lift on each floor.
The property is accessed by a large external staircase that leads to the ground floor, at the entrance we find a sitting room with fireplace, large halls in succession, dining room, kitchen and services. Upstairs we find the sleeping area, consisting of four bedrooms, two bathrooms, one in the bedroom, library with bookcase with authentic furniture of the time restored and anchored to the walls of the room. On the second floor there are two more bedrooms, two bathrooms and a living room with terrace.
Each floor has outdoor spaces such as terraces, gardens and two characteristic loggias, located on the first floor and which transfer the style and uniqueness of the residence.
Pertaining to the main building is an annex of about 150 square meters on two floors consisting of a lounge, three bedrooms and bathroom.
Ideal location because it is reserved but close to the beaches and all useful services, such as offices and shops, at the motorway junction and just 30 minutes from Catania Fontanarossa airport.
