description

The villla is located in the prestigious area of Appia Antica in Rome. Originally built in ‘900, it is externally defined by multiple arches, internally by wide white and Greek-like volumes and atmospheres. The property is about 1000 sqm and it’s surrounded by a 5000 sqm garden, developed on many levels with the hills the estate lays on. The garden, many times used as a cinema set for international movies surrounds the villa and it protects it from the city outside. Roses are the frame to the swimming pool, a 5*15 metres surrounded by sun beds, wrought iron chaises longues, white large pillows, sun umbrellas and a service bathroom.
The villa is developed on three floors. The big stone stair crosses the garden and leads guests and friends to the main entrance and, right after, to the ground floor. From the main entrance one can access the living areas, the sleeping areas, the gym, the laundry room, the caveau and the staff quarters. The wide living room windows open to the garden on three sides, while the big white sofas reflect the light and give the impression of actually being in the garden. Just on the side, a service little bathroom is available. Upscale materials and colours mixed together with a predominance of white and tones of orange, give it a vivid and welcoming accent. The owner herself, has strived for the best standards of quality. The dining room with fireplace has two entrances to the garden. The kitchen has a contemporary / industrial twist, with two professional fridges, a double steam oven, a normal oven, a frying machine and again a fireplace. The studio room is equipped for fast internet, fax, use of personal computer and it has a balcony and a bathroom. Four bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. The master suite has a king size bedroom, a dressing room, fireplace and two bathrooms, one with bath tub and the other one with shower. The master bedroom has access to the the external stairs with French doors. Staff consists of two persons: one person is dedicated to breakfast preparation and housekeeping, while the other is the estate manager. Also available: a Volvo V70 Turbo Diesel (automatic) with satellitar computer on – courtesy of the proprietor. The luxurious garden space set in the centre of Rome, just 15 minutes of car from Piazza Venezia, defines this property, central yet secluded, urban yet isolated, in a unique way.
The 35 sqm dependance works as staff quarters, and includes a bedroom, a living room, bathroom and kitchenette. A second annexe, 15 sqm, with bedroom and bathroom can offer further hospitality to more staff.
