    About this property

    • Villa Ducale has been renovated, but throughout the property there is the evidence of its original features. Upon viewing the villa you will feel overwhelmed by the attention to finer details: impressive antiques in keeping with its stone walls, and large original archways in the entrance hall. Wood greatly features throughout the house; you have only to look at the big wood panelled library in the living area and the authentic wood ceiling beams. Dominating this room with French windows opening towards the garden is a wonderful open fireplace. The villa of 600 sqm, is composed of 2 double en suite bedrooms, 1 small bathroom and a kitchen on the ground floor. A stairway leads up to a further two floors. On the first floor there is a large living room, a bright conservatory, a kitchen with pantry room, a laundry room, 1 en suite double bedroom with walk-in wardrobe, 1 double bedroom with adjacent bathroom, an ensuite master bedroom and dressing room. Stairs lead up to the second floor where you find a spacious study and a large attic. Villa Ducale is completely fenced and encloses half a hectare of land landscaped with oak-trees and cypresses, that extends to the front entrance of the property. On the opposite side there is a cross shaped swimming pool, mirroring the family crest. The property is surrounded by an organic agricultural farm, and is easily accessible via an asphalt road and a very short white road in good condition. In the garden there is a little lake. The house will be sold with no contents.

    Additional information

    • Arezzo is an ancient Etruscan town and a busy place with a pleasant city centre full of shops and restaurants. It has a less touristy feel to it than many Italian cities in Tuscany. The chief draw for visitors is the fresco cycle by Piero della Francesca in the apse of the Franciscan church, San Francesco. Other attractions include the Piazza Grande, a small Piero della Francesca fresco in the Duomo and the house of Giorgio Vasari, painter, architect and the author of “Lives of the Artists”, a who's who of medieval and Renaissance artists. It was said that Vasari was a good writer, a reasonable architect and a mediocre painter. You can judge the last two for yourself if you look at the Loggia di Vasari in the Piazza Grande and then visit his house which is covered in his paintings. Arezzo also hosts one of the largest antiques markets in Italy on the first weekend of every month.
