In the prestigious setting already selected by the patrician families of Ancient Rome and later also chosen as a summer residence by the Papal nobility and the relative Pontifical Court, we offer for sale a charming property, very representative and truly unique in its kind that, respecting the classic Roman concept of the roof designed to form a compluvium and with a magnificent view of the eternal city, consists of 700 square meters of living space on three levels and surrounded by a park with swimming pool, full of olive trees and fine tall trees.
The villa stands on the side of the ruins of one of these ancient Roman residences and still visible today are the underground passages that connected the ancient patrician properties to each other until you get, as Plutarch tells us, to the villa of Cicerone in Grottaferrata.
From the external electric gate, under video surveillance as well as every corner of the property, two drivable avenues depart: the first leads to the representative entrance where, accompanied by a Roman opus incertum wall, they enter the guests and open onto a succession of two large and bright halls, both with fireplace, as well as a smoking room, all heated by a multitude of carpets that outline the equally numerous living areas designed with convivial purposes, reading or relaxation.
The second avenue, as a first step, leads to the service entrance, always placed on the ground floor, which opens directly onto a large kitchen that would be limiting to define habitable.
This second avenue continues going up, to accompany us, always by car, inside a large patio which leads directly to the main floor, the first, where we find two distinct wings of the villa.
The largest of these wings, protected by its own security door, houses the master suite with a raised sleeping area, a sitting area, an ante-bathroom with a double washbasin and a whirlpool bath and, after a glass door, the bathroom with the services, completed from a walk-in shower, a second hydro bath and even a sink, this time carved into a block of Pakistan alabaster; always in the master wing we find a further large room, also with very comfortable private bathroom and shower area.
The second wing of the first floor is reserved for the guests area, equipped with three double bedrooms, each served by its own bathroom.
To return to the ground floor you must choose between two different internal stairways.
With one of these you go down in the living area of the double living rooms and the smoke already described above; with the other staircase you enter a more reserved area, where, passing next to the impuvium. a large room dedicated to music awaits us, with a grand piano in the center, and crossing it, we arrive at an elegant and, once again more than ample, study with walls organized as a bookcase.
Passing next to a cloakroom dedicated to guests and a further bathroom for the same, you go down to the basement consisting of numerous and comfortable rooms, closets, areas of service and relaxation, including a movie theater.
Outside the villa, on the west side, a very pleasant porch, with a long dining table, from which you can enjoy fantastic sunsets over Rome while, on the east side, towards the pool, a large patio with fireplace, barbecue and oven.
We stop here. It would be necessary a volume to adequately describe all the corners, internal and external, the beauties both natural and historical and, last but not least, the works and the attentions that the owners have put in place, with palpable great love, in furnishing, in the choice fabrics that give breath to the coverings, in the paintings that give voice to the walls and, at the same time, warm and fresco the ceilings of the halls ... a love that we find in every detail of this beautiful and stately home ... ....
