Luxurious Historical Villa With Frescoes On Veneto's Hills
Elegant luxury estate in the province of Rovigo
Typical 16th-century Venetian villa with valuable frescoes in Veneto
This historical and very charming villa, whose wonderful architecture puts it among the most beautiful Venetian villas, is in Fratta Polesine, in the province of Rovigo, a quiet town full of culture and history, far from the hustle and bustle of big cities yet close to the main conveniences and services.
This estate dates back to the 16th century, when it was commissioned by Vincenzo Grimani, a member of one of Venice's most illustrious families. With its unmistakeable style and spacious, frescoed halls, it represents a significative part of the history of this Venetian town and is considered part of the heart and sould of Fratta Polesine, as is the famous Villa Badoer, which is nearby and was also designed by Andrea Palladio.
A verdant park measuring 20,000 sqm and full of local plants make this setting a truly magical place that invites us to reflection and meditation, the ideal space to enjoy these vast external areas on our own or with our guests.
This magnificent Palladian-style villa has three floors and measures 400 sqm. Its rooms feature some stunning decorations with frescoes dating back to the middle of the 16th century that have eches to ancient history and mythology, and to themes such as love and fertility. These works had been attributed to Giallo Fiorentino for a long period but were actually made by Anonimo Grimani, a member of the circle of Giuseppe Porta Salviati, which Giallo Fiorentino was also part of, as he did the works in the neighbouring Villa Badoer.
The ground floor of this Venetian villa is home to a spacious living area composed of a big state hall, a kitchen, and a dining room, a cozy communal room and another sitting room.
By going up to the first floor, which is symmetrical to the ground floor, we will be charmed by the frescoes that adorn the spacious hall and almost all the rooms on this floor. The top floor, just below the roof, is an open-space area featuring a bedroom with very high ceilings measuring almost three meters.
The charming setting, surrounded by Veneto's hills, that frames this stunning, typically-Venetian, historical villa for sale make it perfect for those looking for a dream home in a rural, natural and relaxing setting.
