Charming estate with period villa in the wooded setting of Piazza Armerina
This extraordinary property is located at the foot of Piazza Armerina, an area renowned for the mosaics of the Villa Romana del Casale, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
In this privileged setting lies an enchanting estate consisting of the stunning manor house, an old and characterful outbuilding, former agricultural storerooms which have been renovated and converted, various courtyards and gardens, a magnificent ornamental garden and 11 hectares of land with 3 ruins of pre-existing properties ready to be reconstructed.
The main villa, Casa dei Santi, is spread over a total of 5 levels: a ground floor used as a living area with large reception rooms, the first and second floors for sleeping with 10 bedrooms enjoying panoramic views over the valley and the wood, an attic floor with sloping ceilings, and a large windowed semi-basement floor consisting of 4 large rooms.
The interior is embellished with floors with antique Santo Stefano di Camastra ceramics and finely-decorated ceilings, while an elegant staircase connects the various levels of the villa.
The magnificent ornamental garden features a boxwood parterre, palm trees and pines, and is enriched by beautiful and elegant fountains. The entire property extends over 11 hectares including a real wood with avenues and paths, some of which lead to 3 ancient farm buildings, now in ruins but with potential to reconstruct.
It is worth noting that, due to its unique characteristics and its spaces and outbuildings ready to be restored and potentially converted into additional accommodation, the estate represents an exceptional investment opportunity.
