1950s luxury villa in Forte dei Marmi
In Forte dei Marmi, Versilia's jewel in the crown, there is this luxury villa built in the late 1950s for sale.
It was commissioned by the family of Thomas Mann, German writer and winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature; his daughter Elisabeth fell in love with it and called it “an ocean liner ready to set sail for the mountains”, referring to the Apuan Alps that frame this sea resort.
Built in 1957, this villa was designed by a famous Italian architect and it is immediately recognisable thanks to its clear references to the Rationalism architectural current, typical of the 1950s.
This three-storey building has an irregular and complex structure, and measures 350 m2 overall.
Its main features are, without doubt, the walls made of stone and rough Carrara marble, and the big windows outlining the internal spaces, offering pleasant lighting and a view that stretches to the Apuan Alps.
This property was born as a holiday home but can be enjoyed all year-round, offering spacious and comfortable rooms, with four bedrooms and four bathrooms, and a charming and private 2,500 m2 garden where it is also possible to build a beautiful swimming pool.
Its typical and prestigious architecture, together with its curious history, make this luxury villa in Forte dei Marmi a true dream home in Versilia's real estate market.
