The restoration has been conducted with the maximum attention to preserve all the original features, but, at the same time, with the intention of introducing systems and finishes to the highest standards.
Ceilings are with wooden beams, floors are in terracotta, granite and parquet. There is underfloor heating throughout. Big windows make the rooms very bright. Furniture is a fine mix of antique and contemporary design.
The villa sits within 32.6 hectares (80.5 acres) of private land, of which 1.3 ha can be used for a new building.
The area surrounding the buildings is all fenced and occupied by a small paved square, a landscaped garden with panoramic 7 × 5 m swimming pool, a pergola with a relax area, solariums, a private well, a fountain and a pizza oven.
The access to the property is through two gates. The property is also fitted with an outdoor children's playground.
USE AND POTENTIAL USES
The property is currently used as a private residence with a small holiday rental business.
Given its geographical location, its panoramic position, the size, and the high-quality restoration, it would be ideal to be converted either into a farming business with annexed rental units (agriturismo) or into a luxury boutique hotel.
