Property description

Villa del Vescovo, Palestrina: a superbly designed and prestigious 1,200 villa set in one hectare of fully fenced, landscaped private grounds. This magnificent home is located in the elegant residential area of Palestrina, only 22 kms from Rome's Ciampino airport and less than 40 minutes drive into the centre of Rome. Villa del Vescovo also features a swimming pool, a tennis court / soccer field, and separate staff accommodation. The property has 10 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms excluding the live-in staff accommodation.

This important home is arranged on three levels - the ground floor and first floor together with the lower ground floor. The villa is configured as follows:

The decorated and embellished wrought-iron electric entrance gates open into the silence and tranquility of the landscaped 10,000 grounds; a long tree-lined avenue sweeps up to the property where a spacious porticoed terrace leads to the imposing main entrance into the villa.

The ground floor forms a complete "living area" zone with a conveniently wide hallway, a spectacular and elegant triple salon featuring a beautiful open staircase with wrought-iron decorated railings, a study, a living room (or formal dining room), a kitchen and two large bathrooms. Many doors open out into the surrounding gardens.

Ascent of the enchantingly elegant feature staircase leads to the "night floor" where there are five double bedrooms, three bathrooms all beautifully fitted-out and finished, and a smaller guest bedroom. One of the double bedrooms, designated as the master suite, has a dressing room and en-suite bathroom. The night floor enjoys large balconies and terraces overlooking the grounds with the view and open areas enhancing the already spacious bedrooms.

The lower ground floor is currently configured as a separate unit, ideal as a guest level for family and friends and as an entertainting area. This floor consists of a living room, four bedrooms, three bathrooms and two kitchens - perfect for catering for large parties and also for alfresco dining in the gardens and by the pool with your guests. This level opens onto a beautiful terraced area featuring a lovely fountain; from these terraces, with their intricate wrought-iron railings, a few marble steps lead down to the swimming pool zone. An enchanting area of the property: its swimming pool measuring 18 meters by 9 meters, with a depth from 1 meter to 2.80 meters; the adjacent wooden gazebo where one can sit and enjoy a glass of fine Italian wine amidst the trees; the peace and silence guaranteeing total relaxation while swimming and sun-bathing.

Not far away, immersed in the greenery of the park area, there is a totally independent annex with its own entrance gate,consisting of an open-plan living room, double bedroom and bathroom, ideal as live-in staff accommodation or as self-contained accommodation for a family member..

Villa del Vescovo also has a synthetic surfaced court/field at the rear of its grounds serving a double function as a tennis court and/or soccer field. And a dining terrace enclosed with sliding glass panes boasts a pizza oven.

The interior decor of this villa is outstanding with precious marble insets and olive-wood parquet flooring, and beautiful fittings and finishes throughout. The iron grilles of the windows on the ground floor are all handcrafted, as are the important and beautiful entrance gates to the property.

The systems are thermo-autonomous methane gas central heating; there is an anti-theft and video surveillance system throughout the villa, a 15 kw photovoltaic system and finally a back-up generator. There is an outbuilding/tool shed in the grounds which benefit from an automatic irrigation system.

The position of Villa del Vescovo allows a striking view of the city of Rome on one side of the property, Roman castles and Castel San Pietro on the other. This excellent central location between Palestrina and Zagarolo allows easy access to the restaurants, bar/cafés, shops and services of both these two nearby Roman towns. And, most importantly, the A1 Rome/Naples motorway, (S.Cesareo exit), can be reached in only a few minutes drive from the property.
