The mansion was rebuilt from ruins by an Austrian artist with an eye for detail; it is well-assimilated within its surroundings. While it appears historic from the outside, the interior offers all the comfort of a modern and luxurious house: underfloor heating, spa bathrooms with hand-made tiles, guest toilets, a spacious living room with a fireplace and a maroccan-Style niche, a fitted kitchen, and (above all) a lot of space! The house is three storeys high. The ground floor is currently used as an art gallery with two street-level entrances, toilets and a small courtyard. This floor could easily be converted into an annex or 'granny-flat'. The first floor and the loft areas feature a big terrace which receive plenty of sunlight, even in winter. Most rooms feature underfloor hearing powered through solar panels; the rest use climate-control units. Without doubt, the kitchen is one of the main attractions of this villa: full of natural light and well-fitted with an antique stone floor, Turkish marble surfaces, elevated wooden ceilings and lots of cupboard space. Doors, windows and cupboards throughout the house are all built to a high standard. This building is the prefect synthesis of the charm of bygone times, an eye for detail and the comfort of modern life; all it needs now is a new owner.
Forza d`Agrò is a tiny and charming historic village situated on a rock 300 m above the iconic coast; it offers spectacular and unique views of Mount Etna, Taormina, the sea and the Italian mainland. The romantic and unique nature of this village inspired Francis Ford Coppola to make Forza d'Agrò one of the major locations of the film 'The Godfather'. Many people who have visited the village on holiday have ended up settling there, such is the beauty of the place. Situated right in the heart of the village, the glamorous historic Mansion La Baronia is captivating, with a stunning view of the sea, Mount Etna and the Norman castle.
