Restored €1.250.000,00 - Country Properties
This 19th century villa, with an adjacent independent 3-bedroom house and a converted barn, offers excellent potential for use either as a large private residence or as a well-established, successful hospitality business.
It is located in the green Sabine hills north of Rome, with good road and rail connections and a drive-time to the city centre of less than one hour.
The three main buildings, set in mature landscaped gardens, have all been restored and maintained with impeccable attention to detail, making the most of the ornate formal elegance of the main villa (including restored frescoed, panelled or brickwork ceilings) and the more rustic warmth of the second house and the barn.
The property has at present 1.4 hectares of land with far-reaching views over the surrounding hillsides, including landscaped and well-tended gardens with lawns, terraces, mixed borders, mature trees and plants.
The particularly unspoilt area of “Sabina” with its forests and pretty medieval hilltop towns already started to attract nature lovers that enjoy with similar beautiful rolling countryside, dotted with vines and olive groves and start to look for more “authentic Italy” away from the massive tourist crowds .
The villa (ca. 600 m²) currently consists of a large owner’s apartment with entrance hall, drawing room, study, large kitchen, ensuite double bedroom, store room and large terrace, and 4 guest apartments configured as follows:
Apartment 1: large drawing room, small kitchen, bathroom, one double room, private garden
Apartment 2: large drawing room, small kitchen overlooking garden, bathroom, one double room, arcaded covered terrace
Apartments 3 and 4: each with large drawing/dining room-kitchen and terrace, 2 double rooms, bathroom
At the lower ground floor can be found the old restored cellars consisting of a large, arched main room, a second room and three store rooms, and in front of these a large glass-enclosed veranda/wintergarden overlooking the lawn. This part of the house is currently being converted into a small restaurant with professional kitchen, and will provide the capability both for everyday guest dining and for special events up to 40 people.
The second house (ca. 140 m²) – very close to the main villa – is more rustic in style, many rooms having exposed wooden beams, antique terracotta floors and brickwork details. It is divided into two apartments:
Apartment 1: on two floors, with a drawing/dining room-kitchen on the ground floor and 2 double rooms, 2 bathrooms, garden and terrace on the first floor; an additional kitchen is also being installed on the first floor with a second access to enable this apartment to be divided into two independent units if desired
Apartment 2: ground floor, with a drawing/dining room-kitchen, 1 double room, 1 bathroom and garden.
The large restored barn (ca 60 m²), just a few steps from the main villa, has been converted into a large and airy single space meeting room, and features exposed brickwork and a high ceiling revealing the building’s wooden roof structure.
At some 100 meters from the villa is a ground floor building (ca. 150 m²) with a number of stables that can easily be transformed into rooms with bathrooms.
It is possible to purchase more land including:
A large restored barn, which has been converted into a fitness platform, used also for yoga courses and a modern stable building with facilities for 20 horses.
