STATE AND FINISHES
The villa was built between the 15th and 16th centuries around a pre-existing watchtower datable to the 11th century. The villa has been finely restored preserving intact its historical features but adding a modern and refined touch. Among the most peculiar finishes we find polychrome marble floors, trompe-l’oeil paintings with landscapes and false architectures on the walls, rib vaults, coffered ceilings, decorated stone fireplaces and vaults painted with bright and vivid colors.
The villa is built on a hill and enjoys a splendid panoramic view over the underlying Tiber Valley. The garden of the property houses the 12 × 6 m heated swimming pool and the photovoltaic system that supplies the property.
The complex is completed by 4.5 hectares of land, set all around the villa and divided between arable land (2.8 ha) and olive grove (1.7 ha).
USE AND POTENTIAL USES
The villa, finely restructured and in a splendid panoramic position, is perfect as a private luxury residence equipped with garden and swimming pool. The presence of the outbuildings and various rooms in the main building alternatively allows you to start a B&B-type accommodation business.
