Located in a quiet residential area in the upper part of Camogli, with a beautiful view over the sea of Liguria, we find this 600-sqm Liberty-style villa with ample garden. The property, restored in 2015, offers a total of 6 bedrooms (up to 11) and 6 bathrooms and features beautiful living rooms with rich decorations. The villa could easily be split into two independent residential units.
Services are all available in the immediate vicinity, the center is quickly reached and the sea is just 1 km away from the villa. Other cities of Liguria and Northern Italy are generally reached in less than two hours by car (Santa Margherita Ligure, Portofino, Genoa, Sestri Levante, Pisa, Imperia, Sanremo, Turin…).
The closest airport is the one in Genoa (36km; 35’) but the terminals in Pisa, Cuneo, Milan and Turin are very convenient as well.
DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDING
The villa (600 sqm – 6,456 sqft, 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms) is laid over three floors organized as follows:
- Ground floor: entrance room with portico, eight rooms (two of which used in the past as bedrooms), two bathrooms, an infernot (which is a cellar carved into the stone) and two windowless storage rooms;
- First floor: entrance room, ample living room with veranda, kitchen, sitting room with terrace, bedroom and two bathrooms;
- Second floor: master bedroom with walk-in closet and private bathroom, ample studio with veranda, two bedrooms and bathroom.
Outside, with direct access from the garden, one can also find four small annexes currently used as storehouses and tool sheds.
STATE AND FINISHES
The villa, built in 1912 following the rules of Liberty style, boasts excellent finishes in the many rooms, with sinuous decorations. Many arches, typical of Art Nouveau, are visible all over the house, both as windows and connecting elements between the rooms. Floors are paved in stone, with beautiful and colorful mosaics; the staircase linking the floors, already featured on architecture and art magazines, is made out of marble and fitted with a decorated iron railing. A huge window brightens the stairwell. Bedrooms are covered with frescoed vaulted ceilings, with moldings running all around the house.
The first and second floor of the villa have been fully restored in 2015 with the installation of modern comforts, a total remake of the roof, bathroom fixtures, systems and general redecoration of the façade and the interiors. The ground floor unit needs, on the other hand, to be modernized and updated to be used at its full potential.
The villa was mentioned multiple times for being one of the ten most beautiful dwellings in the Ligurian Levante.
The villa boasts, on the side watching the sea, a nice 800-sqm garden with oven. This outdoor space is perfect to meet friends and grants an excellent background to relax in the pleasant climate of Liguria.
Above the villa there is a small parking with two car spots and a few steps away there are two private car spots belonging to the villa.
USE AND POTENTIAL USES
The villa, thanks to its internal layout, could easily be split into two independent units. The building features two separate accesses, respectively on the ground and first floor. This means that the ground floor, with all the necessary rooms, could be easily reworked into one or more apartments, ideally for the housekeepers or to be rented out. The two upper floors, ampler in size, are the perfect residence for someone looking for peace and tranquility in a beautiful place with an enviable view over the sea.
