Stunning old estate of great historical value for sale between Milan and Turin
This exclusive luxury villa is for sale in the province of Biella, in Piedmont, close to both Milan and Turin and to the most famous ski resorts of the Aosta Valley, such as Gressoney and Saint-Vincent.
Completely immersed in an enchanting setting, this splendid historical villa offers breathtaking views of its surroundings, characterized by gentle hilly slopes as far as the eye can see, which give the view a sense of absolute peace and tranquility.
With its unmistakable timeless classic style, this luxury property consists of a majestic historical villa of impressive size, as it measures 2,000 sqm, built in the 1880s in a perfect Art-Nouveau style, and an ancient orangery, now converted into a splendid venue for events and international exhibitions.
Listed among the Royal Villas of the Piedmont region, the villa boasts a past as a real jewel of Italian culture of the early twentieth century when, in full fascist regime, it became a meeting place for the most important personalities of the time, including Pavese, Einaudi, Pirandello, Montale, Levi and many others.
Protected by the Superintendence for Architectural Heritage and Landscape of Piedmont and Turin, this prestigious estate still retains the authentic atmosphere of the time, thanks to its original furnishings and evocative eighteenth-century settings that preserve its original eclectic style, designed by architect Chevalley. To make this ancient setting sparkling and innovative, an interesting permanent collection of contemporary works of art has been installed, the result of the genius of some national and international artists of absolute importance and of some emerging young people, who have left their artistic testimony here.
A majestic double stone staircase leads us to a spectacular veranda, which opens onto the entrance of the villa; from here we enter the Sala dei Poeti, a large hall decorated in French stucco with an ancient and richly decorated artistic glass window, very scenic, and four themed period halls, decorated and finely furnished, dedicated to leisure and relaxation: a games room, a tea room, a billiard room and a dining room. A majestic marble staircase then leads us to the upper floors, which are home to some comfortable, refined and elegant suites, each with its own bathroom.
As a backdrop to this luxury residence, we find all the natural charm of a large centuries-old park that extends for one hectare up to the walls that delimit its boundaries, giving it absolute privacy and intimacy. Inside, next to some historical specimens, we can admire a romantic Italian garden, featuring box hedges and ancient red roses, which overlooks the splendid Elvo Valley.
To complete this splendid period residence of immense historical value, we find the ancient orangery with its charming loggia: an architectural masterpiece of Mario Passanti, a pupil of architect Chevalley, now home to an elegant restaurant and cocktail bar, and a venue for international events and exhibitions. Located above the ancient orangery, there is a splendid panoramic terrace, an enchanting place that is perfect for large-scale receptions, as it offers a splendid view of the entiresurroundings, up to embracing the mountain panorama in the distance.
