Magnificent villa for sale near Bologna
Just fifteen kilometers from the city of Bologna, in Emilia Romagna, there is this charming villa from the late 17th century for sale.
This elegant estate measuring 1,123 m2 is accessed from an enchanting paved avenue framed by over 500 cypresses winding up the hill where this property is located, which offers a spectacular 360-degree view over the surroundings. A big park measuring approximately 1 hectare and accessible from some stairs connecting it to the patio surrounds this estate, protecting its privacy with tall trees and pleasantly-scented plants. This property also includes 15 hectares of agricultural land.
This villa for sale has three floors: the ground floor, first and second; but there is also a lower-ground floor which is home to a cellar, and an attic. The last significant refurbishment on this building was done in the 1970s by a famous architect and town planner from Bologna.
The ground floor features a loggia with arches, rib vaults and Venetian floors, while the floors in the double-sized hall, study, dining room, and kitchen are tiled with Tuscan cotto.
Four working fireplaces adorn the living area, which also features ceilings that approximately 5 metres high and have wooden beams.
By going up a barrel-vaulted stairwell, you will reach the first floor, home to the sleeping area and its six spacious bedrooms and their bathrooms.
The stairwell then goes up to the last floor, the loft. This is a spacious floor featuring an independent apartment with a very warm and welcoming atmosphere thanks to the roof, which has big exposed wooden beams.
This luxurious villa also has four independent units, which may be easily destined to different purposes.
