Prestigious 16th-century Estate Near Vicenza
Wonderful Venetian villa with frescoes in the leafy countryside on the outskirts of Vicenza
Historical building of great value for sale with a private church in Veneto
In the leafy Venetian countryside on the outskirts of Vicenza, there is this prestigious 16th-century estate with a big planted park for sale near Padua and Verona.
This is undoubtedly a historical building of great value and with monumental restrictions: known as one of the most important Venetian villas in this area, the property was designed in 1580 by the great Giandomenico Scamozzi, then renovated and enlarged to a design by Muttoni Francesco Antonio with the annexed oratory of St Theobald, dating back to 1716. The frescoes dating back to 1587, according to the inscription painted above the entrance architrave, can be attributed to Paduan painter Girolamo Moro.
An enchanting avenue crosses the garden and leads to the villa, preceded by a single ramp staircase, supported by a vaulted structure, which leads to the splendid loggia on the façade, entirely frescoed and distinguished by six Ionic columns. In its 800 sqm, the villa opens on the ground floor in splendid vaulted cellars, and, going up we come across the noble floor, the mezzanine and finally the attics. At its side, a splendid little church offers an additional 83 sqm.
Thanks to its strategic position in the Venetian countryside, a short distance from Vicenza, this splendid centuries-old complex is perfect both as a majestic private home, as an elegant venue for events or even as a charming hotel or representative office.
