The property consists of a main villa and an annex. The villa has three floors and an attic and, due to its positioning on terraced land, allows outside access from the first floor as well. The main entrance on the ground floor leads into a large hallway with seating area; on two sides of the hallway are two dining rooms. Continuing on, you come to the professional kitchen and then to two double bedrooms (with windows without a view), both with ensuite bathroom with shower. The floor is completed by a guest bathroom and laundry. On the first floor, which can also be reached directly from the outside through an entrance at the back of the house, are four double bedrooms and a twin bedroom (with joinable beds), all with private bathroom with shower, and a two-level suite consisting of, on the bottom level, a large living room with outside access and, on the top level (reached up a flight of stairs), a double bedroom and a twin bedroom (with joinable beds) sharing a bathroom with shower. An internal staircase leads up to the second floor with four double bedrooms, each with private bathroom, three with shower and one with ensuite tub and shower. The attic is composed of a double bedroom with bathroom with shower and a double bed in a room with a 1.30 m high ceiling. This last room has a bathroom with shower. In the four larger rooms it is possible to add a single bed. ANNEX. Just few meters away from the main villa and close to the pool area, it consists of a suite with seating room, double bedroom and a bathroom with shower.
The vast, luxuriant, enclosed park that surrounds the property extends over two terraces in front of the villa entrances (on the ground floor and on the first floor) for about 6000 sq m, 4000 of which are lawn with more than 1300 plants and tall trees. The garden with its large set-up areas is characterised by a constant breeze and induces guests to relax in peace with the complicity of the beautiful surrounding countryside (the proximity of the Autostrada del Sole is hidden by the rich vegetation although sometimes, in certain climatic conditions, the sound of traffic can be heard in the distance). In the immediate vicinity of the villa entrances is a veranda for outdoor dining and a seating area. The portico with sofas and tables in front of the annex and facing the pool, is the perfect place for enjoying an apéritif at sunset. The parking area is located immediately after the entrance gate, near the main entrance, with space for up to 20 cars.
The lovely, south-facing pool area lies in a panoramic position just a few steps from the annex and about 20 m from the villa and is reached across the garden along a paved path bordered by flowering shrubs. The large stone-paved and lawn sunbathing area, equipped with sunbeds, deckchairs, umbrellas and tables, surrounds the rectangular pool which measures 6 x 12 m with a depth of 1.50 m. The pool is lined in PVC and has salt treatment purification, internal lights and Roman steps and a ladder for access to the water. There is a hot and cold-water shower, a small bathroom and speakers. Completing the area is a covered gazebo with a seating area with armchairs and a handy fridge. The pool is open from the last Saturday of April until the first Saturday of October. The pool can be heated on request from May to October.
